ICDDPS — 3rd International Conference on Data-Driven Plasma Science
19 Apr 2020 - 24 Apr 2020 • Okinawa, Japan
Organizer:
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST)
Abstract:
On behalf of the Executive Scientific Committee, we are delighted to welcome you to the 3rd International Conference on Data-Driven Plasma Science (ICDDPS-3), which will be held at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST), Okinawa, Japan, from the 20th to 24th April, 2020. Prior to the Conference, one-day tutorial classes called School of Data-Driven Plasma Science will be held in the same location on the 19th April, 2020. The goal of the Conference is for the participants to gain information on and to discuss latest research activities in data-driven science (such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, image processing, data mining, and big data) applied to plasma science and technologies, including, but not limited to, plasma processing and nuclear fusion. Thanks to the recent advancement of sophisticated diagnostics techniques and first-principle computer simulations, the amount of data that one can accumulate in typical research is increasing exponentially. Plasma scientists should also be able to take full advantage of, or even contribute to, the latest development of data-driven science and devise a way to extract essential information efficiently from such data. The extracted information then may be used for more efficient plasmas control and/or offer good insight into physical mechanisms of the phenomena that they study. This year, ICDDPS-3 will be held concurrently with the 12th EU-Japan Joint Symposium on Plasma Processing (JSPP2020) and the registered participants of the conference are welcome to attend the sessions of the JSPP2020 free of charge. We hope that this Conference will facilitate research activities in such areas.

And ITER will be the first fusion device to test the integrated technologies, materials, and physics regimes necessary for the commercial production of fusion-based electricity. In southern France, 35 nations are collaborating to build the world's largest tokamak, a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy based on the same principle that powers our Sun and stars. The experimental campaign that will be carried out at ITER is crucial to advancing fusion science and preparing the way for the fusion power plants of tomorrow.

The ITER International School aims to prepare young scientists and engineers for working in the field of nuclear fusion and in research applications associated with the ITER Project. The adoption of a “school format” was a consequence of the need to prepare future scientists and engineers on a range of different subjects and to provide them with a wide overview of the interdisciplinary skills required by the ITER project.

HPPAW — First Helicon Plasma Physics and Applications Workshop
22 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Hefei, China
Organizer:
Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
Following theoretical and numerical explorations of helicon discharge in 1960s, the first helicon plasma was obtained experimentally by Rod Boswell in 1970 at Flinders University of South Australia (refer to the first publication of Phys. Lett. 33A: 457–458, 1970). Due to its remarkable ionization efficiency and high plasma density, helicon plasma has been used widely in many fields such as semiconductor processing, plasma propulsion, electrodeless beam source, laser plasma source, plasma source for magnetic fusion study, Alfvén wave propagation, RF current drive, and laser accelerators. Given that the detailed mechanism of helicon discharge is still not fully understood and significant advances have been made since the last mini-conference on helicon plasma sources (part of 2007 APS-DPP Meeting), it is therefore of great necessity and importance to organize a workshop for scientists in this field to have discussions and exchange ideas. This will be also a 50th anniversary of helicon plasma generation (1970-2020). The 1st Helicon Plasma Physics and Applications Workshop (HPPAW) will be held by the Institute of Plasma Physics (Chinese Academy of Sciences) in September 22-25, 2020, Hefei, China. It will be in form of invited reviewing presentations and oral presentations on new developments and frontiers of helicon plasma physics and applications.

AAPPS-DPP — 4th Asia-Pacific Conference on Plasma Physics
26 Oct 2020 - 30 Oct 2020 • Jeju, South Korea
Organizer:
Division of Plasma Physics, Association of Asia-Pacific Physical Societies
Abstract:
AAPPS-DPP is holding 4th annual conference in Jeju, Korea in 2020. Asia-PAcific Region is growing very rapidly in science and technology. Cooperation of physics program in this region is quite important. AAPPS-DPP2020 is a plasma physics conference under the authority of AAPPS-DPP for scientific discussions on plasma physics. This conference should be physics oriented and provide interdisciplinary and in-depth discussions among and in various fields of plasma physics and application.

Is There a Common Thread to Layering in Atmospheres, Oceans and Plasmas?
05 Jan 2021 - 08 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
A fascinating and surprising phenomenon that can occur in fluid and plasma turbulence is the spontaneous formation of arrays of layers in which material properties such as density adopt a so-called “staircase” structure. The most striking examples are potential vorticity staircases in planetary atmospheres, and thermohaline staircases in the oceans. Theoretical considerations suggest that layering also plays an important role in stellar interiors (particularly through various double-diffusive processes) and in fusion confinement devices (the so-called E x B staircase). Understanding the phenomenon of layering is, therefore, not only of intrinsic scientific interest (e.g., is there a common thread to layering in these very different contexts?), but is also crucial for an accurate description of turbulent transport in, for example, models of large-scale ocean flow, the evolution of stellar interiors and confinement in tokamaks.

2021 European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry
31 Jan 2021 - 05 Feb 2021 • Ljubljana, Slovenia
Organizer:
National Institute of Chemistry, Slovenia
Abstract:
The EWCPS2021 will be the 19th time this event is organized and is a continuation of the well-established and successful conference series that started in 1985. These biennial conferences, organized by European research groups in uneven years, have become recognized and valuable platforms to exchange experience and share progress in the development and use of analytical plasma spectrochemical techniques.
