The Institute for Fusion Studies (USA) and the National Institute for Fusion Science (Japan) will hold a topical workshop on progress in kinetic plasma simulations on October 31 and November 1, following the 56th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics in New Orleans, LA, USA. This is the 7th 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.

The three main goals of the workshop are 1) to highlight the progress in development of new algorithms and the improvements made to the existing ones; 2) to present new results obtained using kinetic plasma simulations; 3) to discuss the new physics aspects that need to be considered when performing kinetic plasma simulations. Plasma kinetic simulations are used to tackle a wide ranging of problems from fusion plasmas to plasmas irradiated by high intensity lasers. The diversity of these problems has stimulated development of novel yet very specific techniques to address the issues of interest. Typically, the discussion of these techniques is confined to a small community of researchers working on a specific topic. The purpose of this workshop is to bring different communities together for an exchange of ideas.
