The International Conference on Ion Sources 2023 will be held at the Victoria Conference Centre in Victoria, BC Canada. 

The Conference will take place September 17-22, 2023 and is the 20th event in a biennial series of conferences that are dedicated to Ion Sources and their applications, and the first in-person conference of this series after the pandemic.    

ICIS'23 will be hosted by TRIUMF (, Canada's Particle Accelerator Centre, and following the great experience hosting the virtual conference ICIS'21, we are excited to organize this in-person meeting.

Whilst details are still being developed and finalised, the scientific program of ICIS'23 will offer plenary sessions of invited and contributed oral presentations and two Poster sessions. The scientific program will cover themes of the ion sources science and technology that are relevant to the production of ion beams for scientific research and for applications. 


ICIS traditionally addresses:

  • Fundamental processes in ion sources, plasma
  • Beam formation, extraction, transport, and diagnostics
  • Key technologies for ion sources
  • Production of high intensity ion beams
  • Production of highly charged ion beams
  • Negative ion sources and sources for fusion facilities
  • Polarized ion sources
  • Radioactive ion beam sources and charge breeders
  • Applications of ion sources


The host TRIUMF employs a unique accelerator complex, that comprises high intensity driver beams for secondary particle production and a world class rare isotope facility - ISAC. TRIUMF operates high intensity H- sources, several stable beam sources, and target ion sources for rare isotope beam production. Three charge state breeders, an operational ECRIS based charge state booster (CSB) and two EBIS based charge state breeders provided by the CANREB project and an operational device, developed for the TITAN facility, complete the ion source infrastructure. 

We look forward to welcoming you in September 2023.
