International conferences

IPEM attends international conferences as a way to engage with national and international bodies to support their activities and share the Institute's experiences and skills.

In 2019 IPEM will be attending the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology conference, which is being held in Berlin, Germany, in July, and the International Conference on Medical Physics in Santiago, Chile, in September.

In 2018 IPEM attended the World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in Prague in the Czech Republic, the second European Congress of Medical Physics in Copenhagen, Denmark, and had representation at the 18th Asia-Oceania Congress of Medical Physics & the 16th South-East Asia Congress of Medical Physics in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where there was an IPEM symposium. Leaflets about the benefits of joining IPEM were also included in all the delegate bags at SEACOMP.

Professor Mark Tooley, IPEM's President, has written a blog about his attendance at the World Congress, which you can read here.


International campaigns

If you would like a copy of the Science for Patient Benefit campaign materials, you can download them for free. The posters have been translated into a number of languages. Our poster to celebrate the International Day of Medical Physics in 2017, featuring 150 women medical physicists from around the world, is still available to download.
