Radiotherapy Modelling

Luz Saint Sauveur

21-24 September 2016



The French Society of Medical Physics (SFPM: Société Française de Physique Médicale) is glad to report that the first of a series of yearly workshops dedicated to young scientists working in Medical Physics research in Europe took place in the Pyrenees, in Luz Saint Sauveur, from the 21st to the 24th of September 2016.

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 in front of their peers and more senior colleagues.

This is facilitated by the sponsoring of the SFPM that provided 25 travel grants and free accommodation to students and young scientists selected for oral presentation.

This year’s meeting was dedicated to Radiotherapy Modelling.

The scientific domains included :

  1. External and internal radiotherapy

  2. Dosimetry modelling for radiotherapy

  3. Image modelling for radiotherapy

  4. Preclinical research in radiotherapy

News :

  1. Most presentations are available to download (see Scientific Program page)

  2. 10-12 selected presentations will be proposed for a Focus Issue in the European Journal of Medical Physics (Physica Medica)

  3. A call is on-going within the SFPM, to select the location and topic of the second edition that will take place in 2017.
