The sixth international conference on Trapped Charged Particles and Fundamental Physics (TCP2014) will be held in Takamatsu, on the Japanese island of Shikoku, during December 1 – 5, 2014. This conference belongs to the series of conferences started in Lysekil (Sweden) in 1994, followed by a conference at Asilomar (USA) in 1998, Wildbad Kreuth (Germany) in 2002, Parksville on Vancouver Island (Canada) 2006 and Saariselkä, northern Finland in 2010. The conference in Takamatsu will focus on recent developments and highlights in the field of trapped charged particles. In particular, it will address the following scientific fields:
        • Fundamental Interactions and Symmetries
        • Quantum and QED Effects
        • Precision Spectroscopy and Frequency Standards
        • Anti-Hydrogen
        • Plasma Effects and Collective Behavior
        • Ion Traps for Radioactive Nuclei and Highly Charged Ions
        • Storage Ring Physics
        • Applications of Particle Trapping: Chemistry, Trace Analysis, …
The conference venue will simultaneously host the 11th International Workshop on Non-Neutral Plasmas (NNP2014) and a joint session will be held.
