Radiotherapy Modelling

Luz Saint Sauveur

21-24 September 2016



The French Society of Medical Physics (SFPM: Société Française de Physique Médicale) is glad to announce the first of a series of yearly workshops dedicated to young scientists working in Medical Physics research in Europe. Based on a format initiated by the “Cancéropole Grand Ouest“ in Berder several years ago, the workshop is intended to allow PhD Students and Post-Docs working in Europe to present their work.

This year’s meeting will be dedicated to Radiotherapy Modelling.

The scientific domains include (but are not limited to):

  1. External and internal radiotherapy

  2. Dosimetry modelling for radiotherapy (with and without Monte Carlo)

  3. Image modelling for radiotherapy (with and without Monte Carlo)

  4. Preclinical research in radiotherapy will also be considered favourably

This event will take place in the Pyrenees, in Luz Saint Sauveur, from the 21st to the 24th of September 2016.

The main objective of the workshop is to allow PhD students and Post-Docs from various labs within Europe to present and discuss their work with peers and more senior scientists. This is facilitated by the sponsoring of the SFPM that provides travel grants and free accommodation to students and young scientists selected for oral presentation.

News : 10-12 selected presentations will be proposed for a Focus Issue in the European Journal of Medical Physics (Physica Medica).

Physicists can register and attend the sessions (registration fees - 300€ - are kept to the minimum and include full accommodation for 3 days).

The total attendance is limited to a maximum of 60 persons in order to preserve fruitful exchanges and allow for light infrastructure:

  1. -30 «Regular» attendees

  2. -5 Senior Scientists who will present each session (See Scientific Programme to get the list of speakers and invited talks)

  3. -25 Students and Post-Docs who present their work. They will get free registration and full accommodation. In addition travel expenses will be covered up to €300.

Students oral presentations have now been selected by the Scientific Committee.

The final Scientific Programme will soon be presented (see Scientific Program page).
