International Symposium on Non-equilibrium Plasma and Complex-System Sciences (IS-NPCS)

The International Symposium on Non-equilibrium Plasma and Complex-System Sciences (IS-NPCS) is an international venue for discussion dedicated to the advancement of fundamental sciences of non-equilibrium plasmas and complex systems as well as their application to other fields, including engineering. The IS-NPCS promotes collaborative excellence among plasma physicists, nonlinear scientists, and professionals and students from various other disciplines to contribute to new development of modern sciences of non-equilibrium systems, especially those of plasmas. In my view, many scientific disciplines these days are highly specialized and therefore rather fragmented in a sense that each field tends to develop independently with little interaction with other fields. For example, in plasma physics, there are dozens of subfields such as high-temperature magnetically confined plasmas, low-temperature chemically reactive plasmas, and high-energy-density laser plasmas, just to count a few, and each of these subfields typically has a well-defined and self-contained scientific community. The aim of IS-NPCS is to provide an opportunity for scientists from various subfields of plasma physics and nonlinear science to communicate and share information on the latest development of their subfields, which I hope to lead to unexpected and exciting development of new knowledge and new scientific disciplines that may eventually contribute to the welfare of the society at large.
