ENLIGHT Annual Meeting and Training 2018, London

UCL Cruciform building, London, UK
Description

The European Network for Light Ion Hadron Therapy (ENLIGHT) was established in 2002 following various European particle therapy network initiatives during the 1980s and 1990s. ENLIGHT started its work on major topics related to hadron therapy (HT), such as patient selection, clinical trials, technology, radiobiology, imaging and health economics. It was initiated through CERN and ESTRO and dealt with various disciplines such as (medical) physics and engineering, radiation biology and radiation oncology. A regular annual meeting structure was started in 2002 and continues until today bringing together the various disciplines and projects and institutions in the field of HT at different European places for regular exchange of information on best practices and research and development.

The 16th ENLIGHT annual meeting will be hosted by University College London, and will take place in Lecture Theatre 1 (B3.04) of the Cruciform Building, London June 25-27, 2018.

We look forward to meeting you in London!

CALL FOR ENLIGHT ABSTRACTS: We invite you to submit your abstract for presenting a poster following the guidelines. The authors of the best three posters will be granted the possibility to give an oral presentation. Deadline: June 10, 12:00 (CET)
