Thank you very much for your contributions to MR2014 workshop.
The MR2014 workshop had about 90 attendants from US, Europe and Asia etc. and
made many stimulating discussions during May 20 – 23, 2014 in Tokyo and Nikko.
Now, our web site for its presentation files and photos are ready for all attendants.
for the workshop presentation files,
for the workshop photos.
The next MR2016 workshop will be held in California, USA.
See you again in California!
As we announced in May 22, 23, we are planning to publish
the third special issue of magnetic reconnection in Physics of Plasma (POP).
I would like to thank many attendants for their willingness to contribute to this Special Topics Section for MR2014 in Physics of Plasmas.
Based on your inputs, our proposal which consists of 5 mini-reviews and 11 regular papers,
was now accepted successfully by the editorial office of Physics of Plasmas.
1. The Editor, Prof. Ronald Davidson, sent to us the following message:
“The proposed list of papers and authors are excellent, and the Physics of
Plasmas editorial team looks forward to working closely with you to make Magnetic Reconnection
in Laboratory and Space Plasmas – III an exciting Special Topic Section.”
and we have agreed on the following schedules:
Submissions received no later than Jan 31, 2015;
Special Topics Section on Magnetic Reconnection to appear
in the June 2015 issue of Physics of Plasmas.
It is very important for us to stick to the schedule.
Therefore, we strongly encourage each of you to submit your manuscript
by Jan 31, 2015.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding the schedule, please let us know.
2. When you submit your manuscript,
please provide suggestions of at least 4 possible Referees,
who are not from their own institution, and who are not frequent collaborators.
3. Finally, Prof. Davidson mentioned “Benita Hammer and Deborah Doherty
at “firstname.lastname@example.org” <email@example.com> will be the key contacts
in the Physics of Plasmas Editorial Office”.
If you hope to submit your new paper or mini-review to the special issue,
in addition to the present 5 mini-reviews and 11 regular papers, please inform me (ono at ts.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp) as early as possible about your tentative title.
We really hope that we will be able to publish
this Special Topics Section in Physics of Plasmas
with your efforts and contributions.
