High-temperature plasma diagnostics and instrumentation is a growingly interdisciplinary field. The hardware couplings to software and data science are stronger than ever, driven in part by some of the most challenging problems in the laboratory and natural plasma environment. This biennial conference extends a long tradition in plasma instrumentation, provides an international forum  to showcase the latest advances and new possibilities that include but are not limited to plasma instrumentation hardware, software, and data science.  A broad spectrum of contributions are expected with impact on magnetic confinement fusion, inertial confinement fusion, space plasmas, astrophysics, industrial applications, and data science. The conference contributions will be peer-reviewed before archiving in a special issue of Review of Scientific Instruments.
