In contrast, the atomic resolution is easily attainable in scanning tunneling microscopy while maintaining energy resolution in tens of nano-electronvolts. The goal of this symposium to bring together researchers from both communities, discuss the common and distinct challenges and define the future research directions.

As a result, the numerical scheme changes from a fluid model to a particle-in-cell simulation using a Lagrangian scheme. However, there is still a limit due to the uncertainty about the reaction data and the energy distribution function of the plasma. To overcome the limitation, plasma simulations have been expanding into the field of data-driven computational science using big data and artificial intelligence techniques. This symposium aims to introduce these techniques in low-temperature plasmas.
