 History    Minutes        Return to Top

Division of Plasma Physics is first division under Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies established in 2014. The first elected Chair is Dr./Prof. Mitsuru Kikuchi from Japan.
APPC-12 in July 14-19 hosted by AAPPS, JPS, JSAP is a successful physics conference having 1290 participants among which > 300 are from plasma sciences. Plasma science program (D) in APPC-12/ASEPS consists of (D1) Plasma Physics, (D2) Plasma Processing, (D3) High Intensity Laser Plasma Science, and (D4) Space, Solar and Astro Plasmas. In the APPC-12/ASEPS, we had 4 plenary speakers, 41 invited speakers, 46 oral speakers, and 215 poster presentations. In total, 306 presentations were made. Every morning, we had more than 50 poster papers and the intensive discussions are made during the presentation (Fig.1). In every afternoon, we have two parallel oral sessions, where 41 invited talks and 46 oral talks were given, which included summary talks in 4 areas (D1, D2, D3, D4). We appreciate all plenary, invited, oral, poster participants for their excellent contributions. We especially appreciate enormous efforts made by the summary speakers to collect important works. In this sense, we believe that the plasma science program in APPC-12/ASEPS is a great success. In order to sustain and to enhance such scientific activities, it is effective to establish a Plasma Physics Division under the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Society (AAPPS). Thus, we propose to the APPS President to establish the Plasma Physics Division in accordance with the Bylaws for AAPPS Divisions
(http://www.aapps.org/myboard/read.php?id=9&Page=1&Board=about_aapps&FindIt=&FindText=). 
This proposal to create Division of Plasma Physics under AAPPS is discussed at the AAPPS council meeting on January 20 at Taipei and approved.
