The 2015 Tsukuba Seminar organized by the Discussion Group for Plasma Spectrochemistry was held in Tsukuba, Japan on the 9th & 10th July 2015.
The theme of the 2015 Tsukuba Seminar was on the “Current and Future Contributions of Plasma Spectroscopy onto Chemical Exploitation of Natural Resources”.
Our journal Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry (JAAS) awarded two poster prizes at the Tsukuba Seminar 2015, which included a certificate and a fantastic £100 RSC Book Voucher each.
We are very pleased to announce the winners-
