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 2014 (HEDS 2014) 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 22- 25, 2014 with the sponsorship of Laser Society of Japan, in cooperation with several academic societies and associations. The HEDS 2014 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 2014 covers the high energy density sciences with high power lasers and its application in the following major topical fields;

A. Plasma photonics

Ultra-strong fields, THz radiation, X-rays, Vacuum polarization,

B. Quantum beam generation

Electron, positron, ion, meson and other exotic particle beams,
X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFEL),

C. Imaging Technologies

Ultrafast imaging with novel particle and radiation sources,
