Heavy Ion Accelerator Symposia on Fundamental and Applied Science

The aim of the Heavy Ion Accelerator Symposia on Fundamental and Applied Science (HIAS) is to provide a forum to bring together researchers to discuss the uses and development of Heavy Ion Accelerators. It is intended that participants include, but are not limited to, instrumentation and accelerator experts, national and international researchers, students and potential user communities.

HIAS will normally be held around April or September of each year, and is organised by the Department of Nuclear Physics at The Australian National University, Canberra. Specific focus topics for each symposium are intended to change from year to year, to provide a mix of local, regional and international meetings.

HIAS 2016

The next symposium will be held from 18 – 20 September 2016. On this occasion HIAS 2016 will be organised along the themes of "low-energy reaction dynamics" and "nuclear structure". The format that will closely resemble two workshops (one for each theme) running in parallel. The symposium will follow the 26th International Nuclear Physics Conference (INPC2016) that is being held in Adelaide from September 11-16.

Abstract submission should be via email to the conference secretary. Registration will be via this website and will open on 1 July 2016.

Symposia programs normally include overview talks aimed at a wide-spectrum audience, and contributed presentations. Topics are usually focussed around:

  • Nuclear structure and reactions
  • Accelerator Mass Spectrometry
  • Nuclear astrophysics
  • Accelerator development and Instrumentation
  • Analysis techniques

Enquires and Questions about HIAS can be directed to the conference secretary.
