Due to the global pandemic, MMND-ITRO has been postponed until 2023, at the original location, Noosa, Queensland, in 2023. As we all cannot wait to collaborate again, we will be filling the void with a special hybrid meeting out of The Southern Highlands, NSW, February 4-5.
Manor House, a venue of Peppers Resorts, located in Sutton Forest (Near Moss Vale), will host the in person talks, which will be available to view remotely for registered delegates.
The program for the hybrid meeting is available to view here.
Noosa, Queensland, postponed until 2023
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 2023) in conjunction with Innovation Technologies in Radiation Oncology (ITRO 2023), in beautiful Noosa, Queensland, 12th-18th February 2023.
Continuing the series of biennial meetings, the Mini- Micro- Nano- Dosimetry (MMND) conference will be held in February, 2023 (date to be confirmed), and will bring 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).
There will be a special day of two topics: “New Technologies in Brachytherapy” by the Chief of Brachytherapy Service MSKCC Prof Michael Zelefsky, MD, and “Radiomics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Radiation Oncology ” by the Director of the Division of Neuro-Radiation Oncology at the Barrow Neurological Institute and Director of the Barrow Artificial Intelligence Center, Prof Igor Barani, MD.
Innovative Technologies in Radiation Oncology (ITRO) is devoted to the clinical implementation of new technologies in X-ray therapy, brachytherapy and particle therapy. ITRO will be focused on “Modifying the Biologic Response with Modern Radiotherapy” . This will include new radiation sensitisers/targeted drugs, flash RT, fractionation schedules, imaging response and particle therapy. A Special Particle Therapy Day will be held as part of ITRO and will be led by Prof Carl Rossi, MD, California Protons, USA(TBA) jointly with Dr Verity Ahern, Western Sydney LHD. “RBE based planning in proton therapy and heavy ion therapy, including multi ion therapy and proton flash therapy”, will be discussed in detail.
We look forward to seeing you at MMND ITRO 2023, 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 Peppers Resort in Noosa, enjoying the warm atmosphere, sunsets and exciting social program after working hours.
