The 10th International Seminar on Medical Physics (ISMP) 2016 is a bi-annual conference of Malaysian Association of Medical Physics (MAMP). Previously the conference is known as National Seminar on Medical Physics (NSMP). The 9th NSMP was organised in collaboration with College of Radiology Malaysia Scientific Meeting in Putrajaya Malaysia on 5th April 2014. For the 10th anniversary, the conference is renamed the International Conference on Medical Physics to recognise the diversity of the conference speakers and attendees in the 8th (2012) and 9th (2014) conference series. We hope that the change also will encourage more international participants especially from the neighboring countries of Malaysia and beyond to come together in “Fostering (Medical Physics) Research and Clinical Practice for Better Healthcare” in this region.
This year’s conference will be held from 27-28th August 2016 in Bayview Hotel, Batu Ferringhi, Penang, Malaysia in conjunction with an Oncology Symposium organised by a premier Malaysian medical institute with cancer research as one of the thrust, Advanced Medical & Dental Institute of Universiti Sains Malaysia.
The conference accepts abstracts for oral and poster presentations in the topics of radiotherapy physics and imaging physics. Clinical oncology papers can also be submitted and presented at the International Oncology Symposium held in parallel. As in the previous conference, accepted papers will be published in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) by the Institute of Physics UK. Past publication is available here: http://iopscience.iop.org/1742-6596/546/1
Building upon the track record of the past conferences thus far, we hope that the 10th conference will become an excellent meeting place for scientists and clinicians from various disciplines working to advance medical physics research and clinical practice in Malaysia and elsewhere.
