The 5th Asian Workshops on Applied Plasma Science and Engineering organized by Asian Joint Committee for Applied Plasma Science and Engineering (AJC-APSE) have the tradition as the open forums for discussion and collaborating of ideas of scientific and industrial communities in these fields. Several leading industries such as semiconductor, digital devices including display and touch panels, automobile industry etc. in East Asia, together with many initiatives in plasma agriculture and plasma medicine almost in every part of Asian countries form a new paradigm of innovation in plasma technologies. Scientists in the region are cordially invited to the Asian Workshop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for open discussions, networking and collaboration to advance the quality and creativity of plasma science and surface engineering. AJC-APSE welcome researchers in all discipline to join us, we believe collaborating with complementary expertise is the perfect way to join forces for innovating plasma technologies: today's challenges, tomorrow's solutions.
