FRPT 2021, 1st Flash Radiotherapy and Particle Therapy (FRPT) Conference, 1-3 december 2021, Vienna, Austria

FRPT 2021 looks to build a worldwide organisation of scientists and professionals interested in FLASH Radiotherapy (RT) using protons, electrons, heavier charged ions and photons. The Conference aims to gather researchers and students (from academia and industry) with professionals working in clinical oncology, and provide a multidisciplinary forum to discuss the latest developments in FLASH RT.

Behind this new, innovative conference is the international organizing committee of Keren Kirby, UK, Marie-Catherine Vozenin, CH, Andreas Schüller, DE, and Marie Dutreix, FR.

FRPT 2021 is made possible thanks to the partnership between Institut Curie in Paris, The Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois in Lausanne, EU EMPIR project, UHDpulse, EU integrating activity, INSPIRE and GSI’s international Biophysics Collaboration.

Course in VMAT treatment planning and Research Methods

Inholland University of Applied Sciences arrangerer to kurs tidlig denne høsten; «VMAT treatment planning» og «Research Methods». Se mer info under, og trykk på lenkene for å registrere deg.

Dear Colleagues,

With only a couple of weeks before the end of this Academic Year Inholland University of Applied Sciences would like to bring two courses under your attention. They both start with a kick-off in July, although we accept late registrations and will organize a second kick-off for both courses in August for late registrations.

During this full semester course, the participants will acquire comprehensive knowledge and skills in the field of Treatment Planning (TP) for Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) and Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR). Due to the COVID-19 measures the complete module will be offered as a distance learning course.

If you want read more about or want to enroll in this course you can register here.
For more information, please send an e-mail to the course director Jelle Scheurleer

Distance online learning combined with three-day intensive training (due to the Corona-virus this three-day intensive training can also be followed online) at our campus will provide you with the methodological and statistical skills to design, conduct and report research projects in the field of healthcare.

If you want to enroll in the second international edition of this course you can register here.
For more information, please send an e-mail to the course director Moniek van Klink

Kind regards,

Course in Radiotherapy Physics

Oppdatering: Kurset er flyttet fra november 2020 til januar 2021.

Det arrangeres kurs i stråleterapi-fysikk den 12-16 Januar 2021 (Sutton) og 2-6 mars 2021 (Chelsea). Kursene arrangeres av The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR).

Trykk her for mer informasjon.

This course provides practical and theoretical education for the support of a modern radiotherapy physics service within radiotherapy.

It is aimed primarily at recently qualified radiotherapy physicists, but should also be invaluable to post-graduate students, researchers, clinical oncologists, engineers, radiographers, manufacturers’ representatives and in fact, anyone needing to deepen or update their understanding of this rapidly evolving field.

The faculty is composed of physicists, clinicians and radiographers, many of whom are internationally renowned for their expertise. Saturday workshops and demonstrations make full use of the facilities of the Radiotherapy and Physics Departments of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. The course content is reviewed annually to reflect changes in practice and technology.

ECMP Torino er utsatt til 2021

The European Congress of Medical Physics (ECMP) er utsatt til 16-19 juni 2021.

Link: www.ecmp2020.org

Many countries have been critically affected by COVID-19. We all have to deal with uncertainties in almost every aspect of our lives and it is clear that we will need time to recover. Therefore, although all the members of EFOMP are firmly committed to ECMP 2020, we have decided, together with the Italian Association of Medical Physics, to postpone our Congress:

The 3rd European Congress of Medical Physics, organized by EFOMP and hosted by AIFM will be held in Torino, Italy, June 16th-19th, 2021.

This postponement is a fully-equivalent replacement for the planned event originally scheduled for September 23–26, 2020 and for this reason we decided to leave the original name of the event “ECMP 2020”. The ESMPE pre-congress meetings and the AIFM National Congress will also be postponed and will take place on 16th June 2021, immediately before the ECMP.

Registration fees for the ECMP and the ESMPE pre-congress meetings will be unchanged for the new congress date. Registration for ECMP 2020 (taking place in June 2021) remains open.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our participants and industry partners for their understanding, continuous support and flexibility in this challenging situation. Most of our industry partners have already expressed their ongoing commitment and are fully on board for ECMP 2020 in June 2021.

Oppdatert: Mini-MedFys på Gardermoen 3. februar 2020

Mandag 3. februar kl. 10-17 på Radisson Blu Airport Hotel, Gardermoen (gangavstand fra fly og tog).

Det vil være mulig å melde seg på Mini-MedFys fram til 17. januar, men nå tildeles plassene etter førstemann-til-mølla-prinsippet. Kontakt rfjelber@ous-hf.no for påmelding. Oppgi navn, stilling og arbeidssted.  Alle som får akseptert abstrakt (foredrag eller poster) er garantert plass.

Abstraktfristen er utvidet til 16. januar, med tilbakemelding innen 17. januar 2020. Bruk denne abstraktmalen (Link til abstraktmal). Abstrakt sendes til fagkomitéen v/Ingerid Skjei Knudtsen.

Programmet inkluderer en fellessesjon (AI/Big Data, doktorgradspresentasjoner og årsmøte NFMF). Etter lunsj vil det bli parallellsesjoner innenfor stråleterapi og diagnostikk med frie foredrag. Noen av temaene for diagnostikksesjonen er 7T MR, CT-optimalisering og standardisering av radiologiske prosedyrer. I stråleterapisesjonen vil det blant annet inngå foredrag om håndtering av bevegelse.

Link til program

Etter møtet vil det bli mulighet for middag i Oslo sentrum for dem som ønsker dette. Dette er ikke en del av Mini-MedFys og dekkes av hver enkelt. Vil du være med på denne middagen, skriv det i e-posten med den øvrige påmeldingen.
