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 will be covered

  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 presentations.

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

A maximum of 25 grants will be delivered to PhD students and Post-Docs, covering accommodation, and travel expenses up to €300.

Oral presentations will be selected by the Scientific Committee. Young scientists wishing to benefit from a grant are requested to send an abstract presenting their current research projects and results.

                                        DEADLINE is set to May 31th 2016

Abstract selection will be made upon the scientific quality of proffered abstracts whilst trying to insure a broad representation of students throughout Europe. Since the number of attendees is limited, an early registration is strongly advised.
