The purpose of the ICNSP program is to highlight advances in computational plasma physics, plasma theory, and numerical methods for plasma simulations.
The US-Japan Workshop aims to focus on the future prospect of simulation science as a new methodology of science.
The conference and workshop will be hosted by The University of Texas Institute for Fusion Studies in Austin, Texas. The US-Japan Workshop will meet October 8-9, 2007. The ICNSP will meet October 10-12, 2007. These meetings have been an important forum for communication of new ideas in numerical methods, algorithm development, parallel processing and programming techniques.
