      The 2009 US-Japan topical workshop on Advanced Simulation Methods in Plasma Physics is a part of The Joint Institute for Fusion Theory (JIFT) program aimed to enhance US-Japan Fusion Research Collaborations. The JIFT objectives are to advance the theoretical understanding of plasmas and to develop fundamental theoretical and computational tools and concepts for understanding nonlinear plasma phenomena.
      The topic of the 2009 JIFT workshop is Advanced Simulation Methods in Plasma Physics. The multi-scale simulation models are vividly discussed to clarify selfconsistently the interaction between multi-scale phenomena in space and time in plasmas. To understand the mechanisms of energy dissipation and release, and the behavior of fast particles, and so on, the models are developed, which include the detail processes of physics in plasmas. In this workshop, we will discuss the advanced simulation methods which are developed in the fields of plasma physics, fusion plasmas and so on.
      The 2009 JIFT workshop will follow the 19th International Toki Conference (ITC19) on Advanced Physics in Plasma and Fusion Research and it will be held at the Ceratopia Toki (Toki-City, Gifu, Japan). The workshop will consist of oral presentations that are approximately 30 minutes long (tentative). This JIFT workshop is a follow-up to one on the topic "Progress of Multi-Scale Simulation Models" held on 2008 at Dallas, Texas after the APS-DPP Meeting (Nov. 21-22, 2008).
