Abstract : In Part A of the report the titles of the 12 sessions and the 5 invited lectures are summarized. Concerning the content of the 117 presented papers, mainly the ones dealing with collisionless plasma phenomena are reviewed as for example: collisionless plasma heating by strong shock waves, turbulent heating, fluctuation spectrum during turbulent heating of a toroidal plasma, transformation and absorption of high frequency waves in a plasma, observation of anomalous resistivity, etc. Furthermore, an interesting effect concerning the anomalous scattering of laser light from a plasma is reported. The last chapter reviews a panel discussion on Tokamaks. Part B contains the paper 'Investigation of Instabilities and Collisionless Damping Mechanisms in the Front of a Laser Produced Plasma Interacting with a Magnetic Field.'
