Dear Ali,
the IAEA geometry is no more maintained in the current version of Hadrontherapy (included in the last geant4 release). We eliminated that and also the IAEA macro file. It reproduced a specific experiment performed to have C12 fragmentation in water.
What you have found was due to the fact that in this old Hadrontherapy version there was a bug when using the IAEA.mac file: the Region related to the DetectorLog was defined in a class that IAEA configuration didn't call. If you comment in HadrontherapyPhysicsList.cc the methods related to the SetDetectorCut method, it works.
Anyhow, I suggest you to switch to the new Hadrontherapy version. In case you need C12 ions as incident particles you can use the GPS commands to select them. As an example you can have a look at the carbon_beamline.mac macro file, where C12 ions are shot and transported in an in-air beam line.

Cheers,
Francesco
