The international symposium on Heavy Ion Stopping (HIS2011) has been held on September 21-26, 2011 at the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Lanzhou, China.

HIS2011 is to provide a great opportunity for researchers in the field of Heavy Ion Stopping from all over the world to report their newest achievements and exchange ideas.

With 4 plenary, 38 invited and 29 oral presentations, HIS2011 focused on ion energy loss in solids, gases and plasmas, ion beam-plasma interaction and plasma diagnostics, high energy density and initial fusion confinement, applications in ion radiography, material science and cancer therapy.

About 50 scientists, from 14 institutes and universities in Denmark, Germany, Poland, Russia and China, attended the symposium.

During the symposium, the participants visited the National Laboratory of Heavy Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL) and the 320 kV ECR platform for highly charged ion physics and were deeply impressed by the large-scale scientific facilities and the achievements made by scientists at IMP.
