Great Buddha Hall, Todaiji Temple, Nara, Japan
|On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite you to participate
in the 8th EU-Japan Joint Symposium on Plasma Processing (JSPP2012), which
will be held at Nara, Japan, from the 16th to 18th of January 2012 (with
a welcome reception on 15th).
The Symposium on Plasma Processing covers a broad range of science and technologies related to plasmas processing. This time we have selected "Atomic and Molecular Database for Plasmas and Surfaces" as the special topic of the Symposium and plan to dedicate some sessions to this theme. Other traditional topics in plasma science and technologies, including fundamental physics of low-temperature plasmas and plasma processing for materials, continue to be important subjects discussed in depth during the Symposium.
The venue is a newly-built conference hall (Kinsho Hall) located inside the complex of Todaiji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Buddhist temple dated back to the early 8th century. The conference hall is adjacent to the new Todaiji museum (scheduled to open on the 10th of October, 2011) that exhibits national treasures of the temple. Todaiji Temple is well known for its Great Buddha (Daibutsu), the largest bronze statue of the Buddha in the world, which is housed in the Great Buddha Hall, the world’s largest wooden building.
Nara was the capital of Japan from 710 to 740, prior to Kyoto (794-1868). It was a city of international cultures in those days, with strong connections with Korea, China, Middle East, and even Europe through the Silk Road.
The middle of January is a quiet time for Nara. I would recommend the participants of the Symposium stroll around in the beautiful nearby parks and gardens during the off time, possibly contemplating the bygone days if not science. (The climate of Nara in January is mostly sunny and the daytime high temperature is around 8°C =47°F.)
