Call for proposals for the 24th
LHD experiment campaign in
FY 2022/2023
To prepare the experimental program for the 24th LHD
experiment campaign (the last deuterium experiment campaign
in LHD), I am pleased to invite you to submit experiment
proposals. Submission of the proposals will be
possible between June 6 and June 30, 2022. The experiment
program of the 24th LHD experiment campaign will
be established based on the submitted proposals.
All the experiment proposals will undergo a review process.
The proposals will be selected based on scientific
quality and consistency with the research priorities in the
24th LHD experiment campaign. Furthermore, the LHD
FY2022 Research Forum, held from July 11 to July 15,
2022, on a virtual basis, is intended to allow the proponents
to present and discuss ideas for experiments to be
conducted in the coming 24th LHD experiment campaign.
