The IWPCT will NOT take place in 2020.

We are working on rescheduling the IWCPT and hope to welcome you in Raleigh in a few years. 

Special Issue in Cancers

We are pleased to announce that the special issue “Select Papers from 7th International Workshop on Plasma for Cancer Treatment – IWPCT 2020” will still be published with Cancers, an MDPI journal (IF: 6.162). We are excited that the special issue in Cancers will now be open to everyone as special issue “Advances in Plasma Oncology Towards Clinical Translation”. Please continue to submit your manuscripts to the special issue until January 31, 2021. Make sure to follow the journal’s guidelines for submission. For example, Cancers will not consider research performed with only one cell line. Details can be found on the journals homepage: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/cancers/special_issues/Workshop_Plasma

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline: January 1, 2021. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For more information, visit: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/cancers/special_issues/Workshop_Plasma
