4th European Congress of Medical Physics, Dublin, Ireland on 17-20 August 2022. REGISTRATION OPEN


Dear Colleague,

We are inviting you to register for the 4th European Congress of Medical Physics, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland on 17-20 August 2022.

The theme of ECMP 2022 is Multiple Energies, Single Patient Focus. This represents the many strands of medical physics, which all operate at different energies and strengths and how, when they come together, they maximise the benefit to every patient. Ireland is an island nation with a strong history of sharing knowledge and connecting people. Here, we are all well aware of the importance of science without borders. The idea of the 2022 Congress is to reflect this connectivity between physicists and the sense of community.

EFOMP represents more than 9000 medical physicists and clinical engineers working in the field of medical physics. Through ECMP we hope to connect these physicists and those from other nations.


Preliminary Programme



Abstract Submission Close: Midnight CET 11 March 2022
Abstract Acceptance Notifications: from 27April 2022
Early Bird Registration Close: 24 May 2022
Conference Dates: 17 – 20 August 2022



All accepted abstracts will be published in a supplement of EFOMP’s journal, the European Journal of Medical Physics (EJMP), at the end of July/early August 2022 before the Congress.

For the ECMP 2022, EJMP will publish a Focus Issue with up to 40 full papers selected from the conference contributions. The contributions will be selected by the Focus Issue’s Guest Editors which will be nominated by EJMP’s Editor-in-Chief.

The final manuscripts will then undergo a full peer-review process. The Focus Issue will be published online in April 2023, with deadline for submission of papers on 31 December 2022. The papers of this Focus Issue will be free to download from the EJMP’s journal website throughout 2023.
