Plasma medicine is a new and quickly developing field which deals with the mechanisms of the interaction between living organisms and the plasma of electrical discharges as well as the application of plasma in medicine and biology. The aim of the conference is to create a multidisciplinary forum which brings together experts in plasma physics, medicine, biology, biochemistry, pharmacy, agriculture, and the food industry. The international scientific community working in plasma medicine has been growing very quickly in recent years; the 2016 conference will undoubtedly be one of the largest international scientific events held in Slovakia this year.
