The first Workshop back in 1996 presented a genuinely unique opportunity for a narrow (~20 people) group of physicists involved in plasma kinetic modeling to meet in a very informal and enjoyable environment and, not less important, to pinpoint some of the problematic issues in steady-state collisional-radiative simulations (JQSRT 58, 737,1997). In spite of general excitement after the meeting, it regrettably took another 5 years to organize the second, this time a virtual, Workshop devoted to comparison of NLTE emissivities (JQSRT 81, 71, 2003).

Similar to the previous Workshops, a necessary and sufficient condition for participation would be to present at least one calculated case

|Most of the cases suggested for comparisons were related to kinetics of hot dense plasmas. In terms of the scope of the problems, we have considered broadening the field slightly to include problems, which arise in tokamaks, capillary discharges, and radiative power loss. There is considerable work in these areas, which suggests interesting comparison cases.|
The calculation results
should be uploaded to ftp.nist.gov, directory incoming using anonymous login. Although one cannot see the contents of this directory, there is a high probability that it did go through. Please send a notification email to YR after uploading the file(s).
