The deadline of HIAT’18 abstract submission is on 22nd Aug., 2018.
With great pleasure, we announce and invite you to the 14th International Conference on Heavy Ion Accelerator Technology (HIAT’18) that will take place on the campus of IMP/CAS, Lanzhou, China on October 22-26, 2018.
HIAT conference provides a platform for scientists, engineers, students and industrial partners to present and discuss the latest developments of heavy ion accelerator. Over 200 delegates and 20 industry exhibits are expected to be in attendance. Following the tradition of the HIAT conference series, scientific program will consist of invited and contributed oral sessions, poster sessions. Social activities including reception and excursion will also be organized. An industrial exhibition will take place as part of the conference program.
IMP was founded in Lanzhou in l957. As a national laboratory, IMP operates one major national research facility - the Heavy Ion Research Facility at Lanzhou (HIRFL). A series of remarkable results have been obtained at HIRFL. After a half century of development, IMP has become the most important research center for heavy ion sciences in China. Based on the developments and experience with heavy ion beam accelerators, IMP also takes charge of several new national projects: HIAF, CiADS. We have established active and fruitful collaboration with more than 40 universities and institutions in the worldwide.
The conference venue is IMP Lecture Hall that will cover all the conference scientific programme from Monday to Friday, Oct. 22 to 26, 2018. The scientific programme will be composed of ~50 invited and contributed oral presentations, 2 poster sessions. Sessions will begin each day at 08:30 and end at 18:00, with the exception of Friday 26 Oct., when the conference will be closed at around 15:00.
