LAPD20 has been postponed from 2022 to 2023.

This is the second announcement of the 20th International Symposium on Laser-Aided Plasma Diagnostics (LAPD20). The international Scientific Committee (ISC) and the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) have decided to postpone LAPD20 due to the COVID pandemic. A new schedule and symposium location for LAPD20 are as follows:

September 10th (Sunday) 2023 ~ September 14th (Thursday) 2023

Kyoto Garden Palace Hotel, Kyoto, Japan (web site )

The 20th International Symposium on Laser-Aided Plasma Diagnostics (LAPD20) is organized by National Institute for Fusion Science. LAPD20 will take place from Sunday, 10 September 2023 (evening reception) to Thursday 14 September 2023 at Hotel Kyoto Garden Palace in Kyoto, Japan. (Official Web Site of Kyoto Garden Palace)

The LAPD20 Symposium is the continuation of a biennial series that began at Kyushu University in 1983. It brings together physicists and chemists in diverse areas of laser-based plasma diagnostics including the physics of nuclear fusion, laser physics and low-temperature plasma chemistry and physics.
The symposium aims to promote cross-pollination of these fields via fruitful discussion, and covers all diagnostics using electromagnetic waves (lasers and microwaves) applied to fusion plasmas, industrial process plasmas, environmental plasmas, plasmas for medical applications, atmospheric plasmas, plasmas in liquids and other plasma applications.
Topics on hardware developments related to laser-aided plasma diagnostics are also welcome.
