1. Mini Workshop for Women in Plasma Physics (WIPP)
A Mini Workshop for Women in Plasma Physics (WIPP) will be held as part of the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies - Division of Plasma Physics (AAPPS-DPP) international conference at Port Messe Nagoya, Japan on Monday 13th of November 2023. Women are excellent contributors to diverse fields of Plasma Physics, but they often face different challenges. The Mini-Workshop WIPP-AAPPS-DPP provides a platform for women scientists to discuss and share their journey. The workshop aims to understand the issues that women scientists and researchers face while pursuing their careers. It will discuss women's obstacles and problems, how they are overcome, and what can be done to motivate their participation in research, conferences, and workshops. The workshop is open to everyone, but we encourage women participants of AAPPS-DPP to actively contribute as presenters/speakers or discussion participants. It will be a great networking event.

2. Mini-workshop on probing, controlling, and understanding wave-particle interactions in space and laboratory plasmas

Organizer's name: YutoKatoh (Tohoku Univ., Japan)
Preferred date and time: November 12 (Sun) 14:00-17:00
Number of participants: <50
Purpose: This workshop aims to understand similarities/differences of (i) wave-particle interactions occurring in space and laboratory plasmas (WPIs), (ii) particle acceleration/heating in plasmas through WPIs, and (iii) artificial control method of WPIs. The latest issues related to WPIs in space and laboratory plasmas will be shared through oral presentations (given by invited speakers) and discussions with workshop participants.

3. Fusion Private Sector Session
Date: Monday, November 13, from 19:00 to 21:00
Venue: Main Hall, Port Messe Nagoya
Background and Purpose:
Fusion energy start-ups have been emerging rapidly worldwide in recent years. These companies, including yours, are setting the stage for fusion power generation, possibly as early as the late 2020s or 2030. However, there needs to be more opportunities for fusion start-ups worldwide to discuss the industrialization of fusion as an energy source.
In this session, their respective fusion reactor development plans will be discussed. Researchers, engineers, or managers from some fusion start-ups will join the session as panelists. The discussion will significantly benefit research institutions, academia, and companies in improving their R&D plans.
Key points of discussion include:
1. How to monetize fusion power generation?
2. What impact could your company's fusion power plant, once demonstrated or realized, have on global energy issues?
3. Are there alternatives (plan B) to your ambitious development plans?
Each company will have a 10-minute presentation. In the remaining time, a panel discussion will follow the presentations and involve a 20-minute dialogue with the audience.
