The 16th International Conference on Ion Sources, organized by Brookhaven National Laboratory, will take place from Sunday August 23 to Friday August 28, 2015 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel located in Manhattan, New York.

This bi-yearly conference provides an international forum to exchange information and present recent advances on all types of ion sources used throughout the world. We hope to promote stimulating discussions, new collaborations, and participation of students as well as experienced researchers. Recent conferences in this series have been held in Chiba, Japan (ICIS 2013), Giardini Naxos, Italy (ICIS 2011), and Gatlinburg, TN, USA (ICIS 2009).

The scientific program will cover themes of ion source science and technology that are relevant to the production of beams for scientific research and for applications:

  • Fundamental processes in ion sources
  • Production of high intensity ion beams
  • Production of highly charged ion beams (ECR, EBIS, Laser Ion Source, MeVVA, etc.)
  • Negative ion sources
  • Ion sources for fusion
  • Polarized ion sources
  • Radioactive ion beams and charge breeders
  • Beam extraction, transport, and diagnostics
  • Industrial and medical application of ion sources
  • Other related technologies

The Scientific Program of the conference will consist of invited talks and contributed presentations, either in the form of oral presentations or posters. Papers submitted to the conference will be refereed, and then these Conference Proceedings will be published as a special issue of The Review of Scientific Instruments.

Participants of ICIS 2015 will include representatives of institutions and companies involved in the design, construction or use of ion sources. Companies interested in promoting their products are encouraged to hold a booth in the industrial exhibit and to apply for sponsorship.

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

For questions about ICIS 2015, please feel free to contact the Conference Coordinator, Sandy Asselta,; 631-344-4550.

I look forward to welcoming you to New York for this conference.
