REGISTRATION AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSION OPEN
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.
Abstract Submission Close: 10 February 2022
Abstract Acceptance Notifications: from 12 April 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.
Before the ECMP 2022 – Dublin
Don’t miss the chance of coming earlier this year at ECMP 2022. You will have the opportunity to attend one of the satellite meetings which includes three editions of the ESMPE- European School for Medical Physics Experts and the EUTEMPE Atelier
Satellite Meetings 17 August 9.00-16.00
EFOMP PET/CT and PET/MR Quality Control – ESMPE
Introducing the final version of the protocol for Quality Controls for PET/CT and PET/MR scanners, developed by the EFPMP working group. How to set up a comprehensive and feasible QC program illustrated by tutorial videos for phantom preparation, acquisition set up and image analysis.
EFOMP Digital Breast Tomosynthesis QC protocol feedback – ESMPE
The draft EFOMP Digital Breast tomosynthesis Quality Control Protocol will be illustrated: from X-ray tube to image receptor, automatic exposure control, image quality tests and dosimetry. There will be opportunities for discussion and feedback. This feedback will be taken into account in the final version of the protocol.
Adaptive RT: Pros and Cons of In-room versus Out-of-Room Imaging – ESMPE
The school will be focused on the Medical Physics aspects of Adaptive Radiation Therapy using Imaging and will be aimed at presenting the background, practical methodology, state-of-the-art and future developments.
During the EUTEMPE Atelier participants will be immersed in real-life problem situations. Three seasoned experts will share their knowledge on the subject related to these problems – equipment related issues, personnel dosimetry, and leadership – and will coach the participants in finding solutions by applying deeper knowledge.
Deadline for applications
May 31, 2022. Places are limited.
