Global Plasma Forum in Aomori
from 15 to 18 October 2023
Welcome to Global Plasma Forum in Aomori,
On behalf of the Executive Scientiﬁc Committee, we are delighted to welcome you to the Global Plasma Forum in Aomori, which will be held in Aomori City, Japan, from 15 to 18 October 2023. This meeting is approved as one of “Demonstration of post-corona convention programs", which is promoted by Japan Tourism Agency (JTA), Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. The World Heritage “SannaiMaruyama Site” (Unique Venue, in the context of JTA program), will be visited as networking opportunity. While feeling Jomoncivilization (ﬁre) and modern civilization (plasma), it is also anticipated to create new value through industry collaboration, andbuild a more advanced network of researchers.
The meeting will consist of a wide range of topics such as plasma science, industrial applications, and contributions to the SDGs, as well as a multi-faceted program that incorporates aspects of interdisciplinary fusion of data science and plasma that are consistent with the trend of data transformation (DX). Participants in this forum straddle the two international networks of fusion and cold plasma science. The purpose of this meeting is to explore the expanding framework for implementing the international joint research. The plasma thatsupports modern society has the effect of promoting chemical reactions without adding heat from fossil fuels due to the effectsof non-thermal processes such as electron collisions and ion surface reactions, and then new academic subjects have emerged such as non-thermalreactions involving electrons and ions, and the chemistry of generation of highly reactive particles from charged particles. Research that fuses this issue with data science and elucidates it through DX has become a trend, and it is highly expected to create new interdisciplinary research and industry-academia collaboration through promoting wide-ranging discussions in this meeting.
