Over the years, work on projects of controlled thermonuclear fusion is in progress. The purpose is implementation of a thermonuclear reactor, which will become an ecologically conscious way of solving the energy problem of mankind. А large number of particle accelerators and colliders have been constructed and created. The main incentive in thermonuclear fusion is the natural processes taking place in supernovae, interstellar medium and galaxies. A workshop on numerical modeling in MHD and plasma physics is organized in the era of "big data". Observations with telescopes such as ALMA and results of experiments on a collider such as LHC generate a huge data. It is necessary not only to process the data, but also to explain the nature of its origin with comparable quality. The problem of modeling the plasma in cosmos and laboratory is many-sided. For the modeling, it is necessary to create computational algorithms based on co-design, simulation study and assessment of the energy efficiency, which satisfy simultaneously the conditions of high computational accuracy, scalability and economy.  The main goal of the workshop is close and intensive interaction of specialists in the field of numerical methods, parallel computations and their applications to the problems of plasma physics and astrophysics. The interaction will allow formulation of modern requirements for computational models and fixation of the current results level as the publications in the conference proceedings.
