The 2014 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry, eighteenth in a series of biennial meetings sponsored by the ICP Information Newsletter, features developments in plasma spectrochemical analysis by inductively coupled plasma (ICP), dc plasma (DCP), microwave plasma (MIP), glow discharge (GDL, HCL), and laser sources. The continued growth in popularity of plasma sources for atomization and excitation in atomic spectroscopy and ionization in mass spectrometry and the need to discuss recent developments of these discharges in spectrochemical analysis stimulated the organization of this meeting. The Conference will bring together international scientists experienced in applications, instrumentation, and theory in an informal setting to examine recent progress in the field. Approximately 600 participants from 30 countries are expected to attend.

Over 300 papers describing applications, fundamentals, and instrumental developments with plasma sources will be presented in lecture and poster sessions by more than 200 authors. Symposia organized and chaired by recognized experts will include the following topics:
  1. Sample introduction and transport phenomena; Micronebulization and flow processing spectrochemical analysis;
  2. Nanomaterial analysis and characterization;
  3. Elemental speciation and sample preparation for speciation;
  4. Plasma instrumentation, including advanced detectors, chemometrics, expert systems, on-line analysis, microplasmas, software, and remote-system automation;
  5. Sample preparation, treatment and automation,
  6. Excitation mechanisms, plasma phenomena and modeling;
  7. Spectroscopic standards and reference materials, and high-purity materials; 8
  8. Plasma source mass spectrometry,
  9. Glow discharge atomic and mass spectrometry,
  10. Stable isotope analyses,
  11. Laser-assisted plasma spectrometry,
  12. Advanced materials bulk and surface characterization, and
  13. Novel plasma spectrochemical applications.

Six plenary and 24 invited lectures will highlight advances in these areas. Four afternoon poster sessions will feature applications, automation, and new instrumentation. Six Heritage Lectures will be presented by distinguished scientists and investigators, who have contributed significantly to the development of plasma spectrochemistry and will address critical development areas in sample introduction, instrumentation, elemental speciation, plasma source mass spectrometry, and novel software and hardware. The 2014 Winter Conference Award in Plasma Spectrochemistry, sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific, will recognize a scientist who has made noteworthy contributions to the field of plasma spectrochemistry through achievements in conceptualization and development of novel instrumentation or the elucidation of fundamental events or processes involved in plasma spectrochemistry. Plenary, invited, and submitted papers will be published in September 2014 after peer review as the official Conference proceedings.
