LOC Chair Prof. H. Yamada and DPP member Prof. T. Morisaki (ITC-24 scientific secretary)

The International Toki Conference is a topical meeting dedicated to a specific subject related to plasma and fusion science. The series began in 1989 with the founding of the National Institute for Fusion Science and has been held on an annual basis ever since.

The last 10 years have seen great advances in the basic sciences of plasmas as well as fusion science over a broad spectrum of subjects. These fundamental topics have the ability to cut across disciplinary boundaries to provide a common understanding of basic plasma science that serves as a foundation for various applications of plasmas ranging from biomedical to industrial to fusion. With this background we are planning the 24th International Toki Conference to explore new aspects and promote the cross-fertilization of diverse fields of science through advances in basic plasma and fusion science.

Topics of the ITC-24 are,

(1) Frontiers in Basic Plasma Science
(2) Interdisciplinary Applications of Plasmas
- Industrial/Chemical/Medical and Agricultural Applications -
(3) New Insights into Space and Astrophysical Plasmas
