Description 
PURPOSE AND NATURE Investigations in Plasma Physics span a vast array of intellectually exciting areas; from deep mathematical structures to state of the art technology. This interdisciplinary branch of physics (fusion, spaceastrophysics, cosmology, industry etc.), overlaps significantly with many fields, such as condensed matter physics, nonlinear dynamical systems, high energy density environments and particle physics, and is continually evolving, conceptually as well as methodologically. The Summer College will be an attempt to bring both the traditional and emerging aspects of this field to an audience from developing countries. Topics to be covered include plasma waves, instabilities and heating, charge particle acceleration by strong fields, turbulence and selforganization at multiscales, strong coupling of flows and fields, coherent nonlinear structures, nonthermal particle and heat transport processes, and vortex theory. Newly developed energyrelated applications will also be discussed. An important aim of the college is to bring together plasma physicists working in different areas for the purpose of reviewing and discussing the present state of the art of collective nonlinear interactions in plasmas. The Summer College shall be interactive. Input from participants from developing countries will be highly welcome and they will have the opportunity of interacting among themselves as well as with other senior scientists/visitors. PROGRAMME The Summer College has a strong pedagogical component. The lectures will be an admixture of tutorials, reviews, and presentation of recent research. Active collaboration will be encouraged through classroom teaching and closely interacting working groups. It is hoped that, as in previous years, many participants will contribute to the poster sessions, and develop longterm working relations with the college lecturers and other participants.
