We cordially invite you to attend the 17th International Symposium on High Pressure Low Temperature Plasma Chemistry (HAKONE XVII ) to be held in the south of the Netherlands in the former Abbey Rolduc, August 23rd – 28th, 2020.

The biennial HAKONE symposium series started in Hakone (Japan) in 1987 and is devoted to the fundamentals and applications of non-thermal plasmas and their chemistry at elevated pressures.

Scope & Format

HAKONE brings together scientists and engineers from academia and industry working on high pressure and low temperature plasma chemistry. The symposium aims to connect more traditional subjects such as ozone synthesis, basic oxidants generation, water treatment and environmental protection to the emerging and innovative fields of biomedical applications, micro-plasmas and alternative materials.

Update Corona Virus
Corona Virus (COVID-19): The Organizing Committee is closely monitoring the developments of the Corona Virus situation in the Netherlands and worldwide.
We will decide at the end of April about continuation of the conference in 202
0. We have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline for Hakone 2020 to May 1st. If Hakone 2020 will be cancelled, we will likely shift to a similar date in 2021.
