High energy density sciences based on high power lasers, ultra-high energy particle accelerators, and astrophysics have been boosted recently with the mastering of powerful laser chains that deliver ultra-short and intense laser beams. Strong vacuum polarization, high energy particles, femtosecond duration mono-energetic electron beams and x-rays come to reality to give us new fundamental knowledge and unique instruments both for basic researches and for industry.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE on HIGH ENERGY DENSITY SCIENCES 2013 (HEDS 2013) is being organized to share information on high energy density sciences and related technologies. The conference will be held at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama city, Japan, on April 23- 26, 2013 with the sponsorship of the Laser Society of Japan, and Japan Science and Technology in cooperation with several academic societies and associations. The HEDS 2013 is intended to provide a central forum for the update and review of scientific and technical information on high energy density sciences covering a wide range of fields from basic sciences to applications.


HEDS 2013 covers the high energy density sciences with high power lasers and its application in the following major topical fields;

  • A: High-Energy Density Matters
  • High-Pressure Condensed Matters, Warm and Hot Dense Matters, Atomic and Plasma Physics, Shock Physics, Phase Transitions, et al.
  • B: Material Sciences
  • Dynamic Material Properties, Deformation and Fracture, Ultrafast Heating, Shock Processing, Novel Processing, et al.
  • C: Planetary Sciences
  • Geosciences, Gaseous and Icy Planets, Exoplanets, Meteo Impacts Equation of State, Phase Diagram, et al.
  • D: Quantum Beam and Applications
  • X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFEL), Plasma Photonics, Electron Acceleration, Proton and Ion Beams, Novel Quantum Sources, et al.


The author(s) of poster presentations will be informed of the size of bulletin board for displaying summary, figures, tables, etc., when selected as poster papers.


A limited number of post deadline papers will be accepted for presentation at post deadline sessions.


The official language of HEDS 2013 is English.
