The 23rd International Workshop on ECR Ion Sources, organized by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare-Laboratori Nazionali del Sud, is aimed to highlight the state of the art in ECR Ion Sources Science & Technology, and to reinforce the common ground and synergies among the different actors in the field.
The ECRIS workshop series have a long history (recently: 2012 Sydney, Australia; 2014 Nizhny Novgorod, Russia; 2016 Busan, South Korea), promoting stimulating discussions and new collaborations, we want to encourage in this edition a stronger interaction by inserting three round tables on subjects that will cover a key role in the future evolution of ECR ion sources.
More than 70 contributions have been submitted from several countries showing that ECRIS science and technology has indeed literally spread all around the world. For the sixth successive time at the ECRIS workshop, Pantechnik awards the Geller prize. It rewards an exceptional contribution to the development of ECR sources and encourages young talented researchers.
The workshop will take place in the halls of the Catania Diocesan Museum, located in the heart of the old city with several archaeological and cultural attractions situated in the nearby. The venue is placed at the foot of the Etna Volcano - the highest and most active of Europe - in a city that is now experiencing its third millenium of history since its establishment in 730 BC.
The workshop includes a number of social events, which will enable participants to mix fertile cultural discussions with the state-of-art of our discipline enjoying the environment with natural and historical beauties.
Looking forward to meet you at ECRIS 2018.
