The XII-th International Conference on Ion Implantation and other Applications of Ions and Electrons - ION 2018 will be held in Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, between 18-th and 21-th June 2018. Kazimierz Dolny is a historic town founded in the XV-th century by the Polish king, Kazimierz the Great. It is located on the hills with a magnificient view of the Vistula River.

The conference is organized on the biennial basis by the Institute of Physics, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin University of TechnologyWrocław University of Technology. The place of the conference i.e. "Dom Dziennikarza" hotel is ideally located in garden surroundings, within easy walking distance from the centre of Kazimierz Dolny.

The ION 2018 Conference will continue to present state-of-the-art ion, electron and plasma science and technology and its application in materials engineering. It has to be noted particularly that this now well-established series of biennial ION conferences has created a unique opportunity for scientists from Eastern and Western Europe together with their Polish colleagues, to discuss in a most agreeable environment, some of the fundamental questions in their field and develop new perspectives through the mutual exchange of ideas.

The following topics represent the focus of the ION 2018:

– formation and modification of subsurface layers using ion, electron and plasma electron technologies,

– ion beam micro- and nano-engineering,

– plasma – based and ion beam – assisted deposition method,

– research methods with application of ions and electrons,

– fundamentals of ion beam interactions with solids.

The range of materials includes metals, semiconductors, insulators, polymers, etc.


During the ION 2018 Conference a special Young Scientists Session will be organized. Prizes will be awarded for the best 15 minutes oral and poster presentations. The Contest aims at Ph.D. students and scientists with not more than 6 years after their Ph.D. defence. The jury will be appointed by the Scientific Committee of the ION 2018 Conference.

In order to participate in the Young Scientists Contest, a candidate is asked to submit a short CV together with an abstract not later than April 15, 2018. The candidate should be a first author of the presentation.


The proceedings of the ION 2018 Conference will be published in a peer-reviewed journal. The details will be given later.

On behalf of the Scientific and Organising Committees of the ION 2018 Conference we cordially invite you to participate in this event.

The official language of the Conference is English.
