Description of the Conference: 
Over the half century since the first finding of the auroral substorm by Akasofu
(1964), auroral and magnetospheric substorm has been one of the main topic for
the scientists in space physics.  Not only giving the spectacular auroral view,
substorm contains various fundamental processes of plasma acceleration and
dissipation in the magnetosphere and the ionosphere.   Recent satellite missions
of THEMIS and Van Allen Probes as well as several modeling efforts are giving
more insights into the relationship between the mid-tail plasma sheet and the
inner magnetosphere and the relationship between substorms and storms.  Extended
ground imager, radar, and magnetometer arrays provide more complex dynamical
features of the magnetosphere during subtorms.

During ICS-12 we are going to highlight the most recent results in substorm
research.  Topical sessions may cover substorm processes in the tail,
interaction between the tail and the inner magnetosphere and ionosphere,
substorm currents and its dynamics, and the role of substorm in geospace
energetics, as well as the role of MHD and kinetic instabilities in substorms.
Other substorm-related researches are also welcomed, such as storm-substorm
relationship, ULF/ELF/VLF waves, and non-Earth substorm-like features.   Ample
opportunity will be given for discussions on the new results.
