The grand design of this series of workshops held every year is to inivte
foreign researchers working on cutting-edge topics and get them mingled
with our Japanese colleagues in a relaxed mood so that <chemical reaction>
can be promoted. Since ISAS is a science institute that flies space missions,
selection of topics is mission-oriented. For this year, the topics are:
Cassini, SPRINT-A and JUICE, MESSENGER, MMS, and ERG.
We believe there are good examples showing that excellent space plasma physics
can be performed by using Cassini data. Some of them are even more highly valued
when compared with counter cases at Earth and/or Mercury. Others indicate lessons
to be learned from the rotating plasma system.
SPRINT-A is an ISAS mission to be launched in August 2013. Long-term,
continuous EUV imaging of the Jupiter global system (Io torus in the
inner-magnetosphere simultaneous with polar aurora reflecting the activities
in the outer-magnetosphere) will be performed for the first time. It sets the platform
upon which spotty yet powerful observation campaigns by <big> space telescope
(Hubble, Chandar, XMM and Suzaku) are situated. Expectations of the campaigns
is one of the focal points of the WS.
Many Japanese colleagues grew-up inspecting Geotail data, and they are
very much akin to the argument of scale-dependent physics (and coupling
among processes at different scales). MMS, diving into the world of electron-scales,
is the one that we are waiting for. Related theory talks expressing expectation
of the mission will be given at the WS.
ERG is another ISAS mission that will explore the inner-magnetosphere of Earth
as a part of the international campaign in 2010's. The WS will let the attendees
to think how to get the best out of the campaign.

The WS venue is on the south-edge of mid-Tokyo area (ISAS campus is about
1.5hr train ride from the WS venue). Accommodation in the areas like, Shibuya,
Gotanda, Meguro, Shinagwa, Oimachi (and Roppongi) would be covinient for you.

that fit your budget plan: Examples are shown below.
Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu
