The 99% of the visible universe is made of plasma, a gas of charged particles known as the "fourth state" of the matter, in addition to the solid, liquid and ordinary gas state. Plasma flows are ubiquitous in nature - pervading the Earth's environment through the interplanetary space - while hot and cold plasmas are operated every day in research, industrial and public facilities, with state of the art plasma technologies being already at the base of modern fusion reactors, aerospace engineering, navigation and telecommunications infrastructures. Advancing fundamental research on plasmas it is therefore critical to support the development of sectors which are strategic at national and international level and to underpin the many technological applications of plasmas, such as the development of devices for the production of clean nuclear energy, or the implementation of models for the so called "space weather", which is becoming critical given our growing dependence from satellite communications. The CNRS and the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES) in France are involved in several missions for the investigation of non-linear dynamics in complex plasmas in the outer space and the development of models to predict the effects of their coupling with the Earth's magnetosphere. Quantifying the cross-scale energy transfer is one of the major long-standing problems in turbulent space plasmas. The goal of this workshop is to address open questions involving multi-scale energy transport, dissipation, and particle energization in turbulent plasmas, with an emphasis on the synergy between state-of-art kinetic simulations and in-situ multi-spacecraft observations with current missions. As the community is now progressing towards cross-scale spacecraft constellations, e.g., HelioSwarm, we will identify appropriate multi-spacecraft analysis techniques that are critical to bring closure to these problems and enhance the science return of such missions. The Scientific Organizing Committee (SOC) of this meeting are the members of the ISSI Team 556 led by Kieokaew R. & Yang Y. . The workshop will be supported by the ERCOFTAC SIG34 and SIG50.
