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 2018

The next symposium will be held from 19 – 21 November 2018. On this occasion HIAS 2018 will be organised along the theme of "Applications of Heavy Ions".

Abstract submission should be via email to the conference secretary. Registration will be via this website and will open on 3 September 2018.

It is anticipated that proceedings from the symposium will be published by the EPJ Web of conferences, part of The European Physical Journal.

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
