University of Wisconsin Madison hosted in Napa California

The US-Japan workshops on magnetic reconnection aim to foster discussions and collaborations between interdisciplinary groups conducting research in this fast evolving area of physics. Following the tradition of the MR meeting series, the MR2016 meeting will cover a broad range of topics related to magnetic reconnection observed in astrophysical plasma, space plasmas, as well as plasma in the laboratory.
