Recent progresses of trapping, cooling, manipulating, and also transporting antiprotons and positrons, allow the start of antimatter plasma physics as well as fundamental physics applying these new techniques. The present workshop is organized intending to provide an occasion for scientists in the related fields to gather together, to exchange ideas, and to brain-storm new research subjects. The fields to be covered are fundamental physics such as the CPT symmetry, nuclear structure studies, atomic collisions, and atomic physics including antihydrogen as well as non-neutral plasma physics of antimatter.


Naha is the capital of Okinawa Prefecture, some 1500km southwest from Tokyo in the western Pacific Ocean at the eastern limit of the East China Sea. The weather is subtropical with warm winters and hot summers. An official web site of Okinawa Prefecture can be found at
