OMA Topical Workshops cover the main research areas on the optimization of medical accelerators and are open to experts from within and outside of this European network. 

The OMA collaboration is happy to announce a Workshop on ‘Medical Accelerator Design & Diagnostics’. The workshop will discuss the efficient integration of beam imaging and diagnostics devices into medical facilities, beam lines and gantries. The 2-day event will focus on current R&D challenges related to diagnostics and how advances in beam monitoring can help design better treatment facilities. Each scientific sessions will be introduced by an overview talk discussing the current state-of-the-art. Contributed talks by other workshop participants will complement the program. 

The workshop is mandatory for all OMA Fellows in WP2 and WP4; all other Fellows are welcome to attend.

This event is open to any researcher working in this field. Contributed talks of 15 or 30 minutes will be selected from all submitted contributions.

Registration deadline: 7th November 2018

Abstract submission deadline: 7th November 2018

Payment deadline: 14th November 2018

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 675265.
