Dear colleagues,

GSI/FAIR is honored to host the 15th International Conference on Heavy Ion Accelerator Technology in the Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region, in the City of Darmstadt, Germany. To allow for the original in person conference experience the 15th HIAT has been shifted by one year to 2022. It is scheduled to start on Monday, June-27 and will last until Friday, July-1, 2022.

HIAT 2022 is the 15th in a series of conferences, going back to 1973 in Daresbury and followed by Strasbourg (1977), Oak Ridge (1981), Buenos Aires (1985), Strasbourg-Heidelberg (1989), Legnaro (1992), Canberra (1995), Argonne (1998), Delhi (2002), Brookhaven (2005), Venice (2009), Chicago (2012), Yokohama (2015) and Lanzhou (2018).


HIAT is an international conference dedicated to the design, construction, development and operation of heavy-ion accelerators and their components. It focuses on the operational experience of existing facilities, achievements in heavy-ion accelerator physics and technology, progress on the implementation of new projects and infrastructure upgrades, and trends in the proposal, design and application of heavy ion accelerators as well as their main systems and components.

Detailed topics will be defined by the international advisory committee based on the interest of the community as well as the selection of invited speakers.

All sessions will be plenary and consist of invited and contributed talks. A poster session, a lab tour of the GSI/FAIR accelerator complex including the FAIR construction site, and an excursion will complete the program.
