MMND: 10 to 13 February 2020 ~ ITRO: 13 to 16 February 2020
The Centre for Medical Radiation Physics, in collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre (MSKCC) USA, is once again hosting the International conferences of Mini- Micro- Nano- Dosimetry (MMND 2020) in conjunction with Innovation Technologies in Radiation Oncology (ITRO 2020), from 10 to 16 February, 2020.
Continuing the series of biennial meetings, the Mini- Micro- Nano- Dosimetry (MMND) conference will be held on the 10 to 12 February , and brings together international and Australian radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiation scientists and nanomedicine experts. The talks at MMND will focus on new achievements in the radiobiology of radiation therapy including particle therapy and synchrotron MRT, radiomics and artificial intelligence as applied to radiation therapy and imaging, advanced dosimetry in radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging and diagnostic radiology for physicists including trainees (DIMPs).
Special sessions led by experts from MSKCC. “New Technologies in Brachytherapy” by Prof Michael Zelefsky, MD, and “Radiomics and Machine Learning Models” by Prof Joseph Deasy, PhD to be held on 12 February
Innovative Technologies in Radiation Oncology (ITRO) is devoted to the clinical implementation of new technologies in X-ray therapy, brachytherapy and particle therapy. ITRO 2020 to be held on the 14 to 16 February, and will be focused on Integrating Advanced Imaging into Radiation Therapy (MRI guided radiotherapy, role of MRI for tissue radiation response prediction, role of imaging in prediction of patient response to immunotherapy, SBRT, SRS, Hypofractionation and Particle Therapy as well as applications of Radiomics and AI in radiation oncology).
The Social Day will be on Thursday 13 February. There will be different options, additional to the registration, to explore the beautiful south coast.
The Conference Dinner will be held in the evening of the 13 February.
The conference this year is ACPSEM CPD endorsed. MMND ITRO attendance will attract 10 points per day with the exception for Sunday 16 February, which will be 7 points.
We look forward to seeing you at MMND ITRO 2020 which will provide a unique multidisciplinary forum to discuss advances and future developments in radiation medicine in parallel with the opportunity to continue discussions at the beautiful Pacific Beach in Wollongong enjoying the warm atmosphere, sunsets and exciting social program after working hours.
