 Welcome to ICIS’19

The 18th International Conference on Ion Sources (ICIS’19) organized by Institute of Modern Physics will take place at Crowne Plaza, Lanzhou, China on the beautiful Yellow River shore from September 1 to 6, 2019.

This is a biennial international even in the ICIS series after recent three conferences hosted in Geneva (ICIS’17, EU), New York City (ICIS’15, North Am), and Chiba (ICIS’13, Asia), respectively. After 6 years, this conference returns to Asia again. It will be the second time for this even to be hosted in China, after the ICIS1993 in Beijing hosted by PKU University.

ICIS'19 will continue the traditional form of previous conferences that facilitates formal and informal interactions between ion source scientists, engineers, students and industrial exhibitors, encouraging the exchange of information and ideas across the broad spectrum of ion source science and technology.

ICIS'19 will offer 15 plenary sessions of invited and contributed oral presentations on Monday morning through Friday afternoon. Two Poster sessions will be arranged on Monday and Wednesday afternoon respectively. The scientific program will cover themes of the ion sources science and technology that are relevant to the production of beam for scientific research and for applications:

  • Fundamental processes in ion sources, plasma
  • Production of high intensity ion beams
  • Production of highly charged ion beams
  • Negative ion sources
  • Ion sources for fusion
  • Polarized ion sources
  • Radioactive ion beam sources and charge breeders
  • Beam formation, extraction, transport, and diagnostics
  • Applications of ion sources
  • Key technologies for ion sources

We are glad that Review of Scientific Instruments of AIP will be our conference guest sponsor to support fully the publication of the refereed Proceedings.

Details on the program, registration, abstract submission, vendor participation, and hotel accommodations can be found on this site (under construction).

For questions about ICIS 2019, please feel free to contact the Conference LOC chair, Huanyu Zhao,, (+86) 931 4969 542.

I look forward to welcoming you to Lanzhou for this conference.
