ICACS deals with physical and chemical phenomena induced by the interaction beams with condensed matter (surface, bulk of solids and liquids). Projectiles include singly and charged ions, atoms and clusters, photons, electrons, positrons, antiprotons, etc. It started in 1965 in Aarhus (Denmark). The most recent meetings have been held in Lanzhou (China, 2014), Debrecen (Hungary, 2014), Kyoto (Japan, 2012), Krakow (Poland, 2010) and Phalaborwa (South Africa, 2008).
The objectives of ICACS-28 are to assess the state of the art in the current understanding of a variety of basic phenomena.

SHIM 2018 will be the 10th International Symposium in a series started in Caen (France) in 1989. The most recent meetings have been held in Darmstadt (Germany, 2015), Kyoto (Japan, 2012) and Lyon (France, 2008) and brought together scientists performing research with high-energy heavy ions in various fields, including radiation effects in solids, atomic physics, plasma physics, radiation biology and medicine, and nanotechnology. SHIM focuses on basic as well as applied research, including both theoretical and experimental aspects.

In 2012, ICACS and SHIM took place in Kyoto with an overlap of 2 days and joint social events. In 2018, ICACS and SHIM will be organized together in Caen (France), starting with the traditional ICACS tutorials on Sunday at 14:00. The conference program will comprise invited lectures as well as oral and poster presentations. There will be no parallel sessions. The conference will start on Monday morning at 9:00 and  close on Friday at 17:00. Proceedings are planned as special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods B.
