Recent developments of the high-intensity lasers are opening a new window
to fundamental physics as well as applied researches. In particular,
the ultra-high intensity realm of quantum electrodynamics (QED) is
within reach, and its non-perturbative nature will be experimentally
studied in near future.
Investigations using the high-intensity lasers are intimately tied up with
physics of strong-field dynamics in other areas, such as the quark-
gluon plasma of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) which allows for
strong non-Abelian gauge fields, or astrophysical phenomena in magnetars having critically strong magnetic fields. Thus, collaborations over a wide range of physicists are extremely necessary for the global understanding of strong-field dynamics.
The purpose of the conference is to gather experts on the strong-field dynamics from various areas of
physics and discuss the prospects of fundamental physics using high-intensity lasers. Although the
conference will mainly focus on the aspect of fundamental physics, it is closely related to wider subjects
extending from laser accelerations to nuclear and material sciences, and we welcome participations from
wide areas of related fields.
