We would like to thank the attendees of IWOPA 2021 for the numerous participation and the great contributions on our 3rd International Workshop on Plasma Agriculture, which was a virtual conference successfully held at the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) in Greifswald, Germany, March 1-3, 2021.
The 3rd International Workshop on Plasma Agriculture, organized by the Leibniz Insitute for Plasma Science and Technology, was successfully held from March 1-3 2021 in Greifswald, Germany.
We had about 67 participants from 19 different countries and in sum 56 contributions, inlcuding invited talks, oral presentations and posters.
The workshop covered the following topics:
- Food safety, preservation, storage & transportation
- Seed germination, plant growth & development
- Biological processes, e.g. stress responses, resistances
- Systems & methods for treatments of seeds, plants…
- Methods & procedures, simulations
- Regulatory issues
- Environmental aspects
The general chairs of IWOPA 3 were Prof. Klaus-Dieter Weltmann and Prof. Jürgen Kolb. Both from the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP).
Early Registration: until 20th December 2020
Regular registration: until 1st February 2021
- Regular Participant: 225€
- Student: 60€
- Regular Participant: 285€
- Student: 110€
