ISSS-14 online in 2022

The 14th International School for Space Simulations

In recognition of the Covid-19 epidemic situation, we decided to hold the special edition of ISSS, “ISSS-online”, this September. We will focus on online schooling with no regular symposium.

The conference date will be from September 12 to 16, 2022. We will lecture online on essential simulation techniques such as MHD, Particle-in-cell(PIC), Hybrid, and Vlasov. In addition to the virtual simulation lectures, we will have a poster session for young scientists using virtual conference software through which young scientists can interact with each other as well as with senior scientists. Further details will be posted on this website at the earliest time.

We look forward to seeing you online in September 2022!

We extend the deadline for the abstract submission for the poster session to Friday, September 2.
Registration is necessary before the abstract submission.

Since we’d like to know approximate numbers of participants for each lecture,
a prompt registration at your earliest convenience is greatly appreciated!

The program of ISSS is designed for the teaching of space plasma simulation techniques and sharing of state-of-the-art simulation advances and results with researchers in plasma physics.

In ISSS-14, the online school is arranged so that tutorial/hands-on sessions on various types of plasma simulation models including: particle-in-cell (PIC),  Vlasov, hybrid, and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) codes, will be presented along with review and invited talks on cutting edge topics in space plasma physics research. In the online poster session, young scientists will be able to interact with each other as well as with senior scientists, who have deep expertise in advanced space plasma simulations. 

ISSS-14 is open to all members of the scientific community, with participation by graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists particularly encouraged.
