You are cordially invited to participate in the IX-th International Conference “Ion Implantation and Other Applications of Ions and Electrons”, ION 2012. The conference will be held in Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, from June 25 to June 28, 2012. more



The IX-th International Conference on Ion Implantation and other Applications of Ions and Electrons –
ION 2012 will be held in Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, between 25-th and 28-th June 2012.

Kazimierz Dolny is a historic Renaissance 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, Wrocław University of Technology, Lublin University of Technology and Lublin Branch of Polish Physical Society. The place of the conference i.e. "Dom Dziennikarza" hotel is ideally located within easy walking distance from the centre of Kazimierz Dolny.

As with previous conferences, ION 2012 will be focused mainly on ion implantation, a powerful tool for the modification of the subsurface layers of solid materials. Although the technique has been in use in the electronic industry for a few decades, there still remain many phenomena involved in the implantation process that are not well understood and are of considerable interest, for both fundamental science and also for new developments in applied materials science. One can highlight, in particular, mechanisms of ion energy loss in the bombarded material, creation of radiation defects, the formation of latent tracks, and many other phenomena that researchers are now intensively investigating. An improved understanding of such processes is essential for the effective application of analytical techniques like RBS, ERD, SIMS, PIPE and others.

The ION 2012 Conference will continue to present state-of-the-art ion and electron beam 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 should represent the focus of the ION 2012:

  • creation and modification of layers using ion, electron and plasma technologies,

  • materials characterization with application of ions and electrons,

  • ion beam micro- and nano-engineering,

  • fundamentals of ion beam interactions with solids,

  • mass spectrometry and its applications.


The proceedings of the ION 2012 Conference will be published in Acta Physica Polonica A. 

All the contributions will be refereed. The details of manuscript preparation are enclosed in the Guide to Authors of Papers in  Acta Physica Polonica A.

Invited papers must not exceed 8 journal pages. Contributed (oral and poster) papers must not exceed 4 journal printed pages which is equivalent to 2600 words. One table or figure is equivalent to 150 words. For example, a contributed paper containing 5 figures: 1850 words + 5 figures = 2600 = 4 printed pages in Acta Physica Polonica A. The manuscript (original plus one copy),  should be provided with a CD to the ION 2012 Conference Office during the registration.


On behalf of the Scientific and Organising Committees of the ION 2012 Conference we cordially invite you to participate in this event.
