The National Institute for Fusion Science (Japan) and the Institute for Fusion Studies (USA) will hold a topical workshop on New Aspects of Plasma Kinetic Simulation on November 22-23, following the 23rd International Toki Conference (ITC23) on Large-scale Simulation and Fusion Science in Toki-city, Gifu, Japan. This is the 6th workshop in the series of annual Joint Institute for Fusion Theory (JIFT) workshops focused on kinetic plasma simulations. JIFT is one of the programs through which the US-Japan Fusion Research Collaboration is organized. For over two decades, JIFT has contributed to the development of productive working relationships between Japanese and US scientists in carrying out computational research on fusion plasmas and related scientific issues.

Plasma kinetic simulation, such as particle-in-cell simulation and gyrokinetic simulation, plays an important role in investigating a fine structure and/or small-scale phenomena in fusion plasmas. Nowadays, peta-scale supercomputers are being developed towards exa-scale systems. Innovative modeling and simulation techniques, such as adaptive mesh refinement, implicit time-differencing, the Monte Carlo method, dela-f and gyrokinetic formulations, the variational principle, multi-hierarchy model, etc, are also developed to tackle the challenges posed by multi-scale problems. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together US and Japanese researchers working on plasma kinetic simulations to exchange ideas and report recent research progress. The goal of the workshop is to highlight the development and application of novel methods in the context of various plasma physics problems, including fusion, reconnection, and laser-plasma interactions and so on.
