Conference on Applied Radiation Metrology (CARM 2020)
14th - 16th January
National Physical Laboratory, Teddington
The Conference on Applied Radiation Metrology (CARM 2020) will be held at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK 14th-16th January 20120.
CARM is the latest in a series of annual three-day conferences run by NPL for the nuclear metrology community, bringing together expertise from nuclear medicine, the nuclear industry and environmental monitoring. The first day of this workshop (14th January) is dedicated to nuclear medicine and how we can address practical measurement challenges to support nuclear medicine clinics (along the lines of the previous NPL radionuclide calibrators user forum and nuclear medicine metrology meetings).
We hope this first day of the conference will be attractive to the UK nuclear medicine community and that it will promote some interesting discussions. The agenda for the meeting is currently being finalised but will include three nuclear medicine sessions on 14th January focused on Radionuclide standards, calibration and production, Quantitative Imaging and Dosimetry.
This three day course is designed to help clinicians, physicists and radiographers develop and maintain for the clinical implementation of image guided radiotherapy.
The course has been awarded 19 RCR Category I CPD credits under The Royal College of Radiologists CPD scheme. In 2017 it received 20 CPD credit-points from (EFOMP) The European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics. The curriculum covers many practical aspects and includes hands-on practical sessions, image matching, QA and dosimetry.
To present the legislative requirements with regards to incident reporting under IR(ME)R
To provide education with regards to why errors happen and how future reoccurrences may be prevented
To learn from past incidents, local experience and identify transferable learning from radiotherapy
To discuss the CIB suggested radiology error taxonomy

5th CONFERENCE ON SMALL ANIMAL PRECISION IMAGE-GUIDED RADIOTHERAPY
9-11 March 2020
The conference, which will be held in the great city of Munich, in the south of Germany, brings together various disciplines in the new field of image-guided precision radiotherapy for small animals. In a 2.5-day program various aspects of this developing field will be highlighted: cancer biology, radiotherapy side effects, novel radiotherapy strategies such as Flash, synergy of radiation with drugs, development of novel irradiation technology, novel imaging methods, pre-clinical studies, translation strategies.
The conference aims to allow biologists, physicists, physicians and other scientists to exchange ideas on modern small animal pre-clinical radiation research. Manufacturers of modern animal irradiation and imaging equipment will actively participate in the meeting.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
If you are a scientist working in the field of precision radiotherapy or imaging with small animals, in particular for cancer, but also for other diseases, or if you use radiation injury to study certain phenomena, you should consider participating in this exciting conference to share your ideas and experience and expand your network. If you recently set up a small animal irradiation device or are considering acquiring one, you should not miss this unique opportunity. It will provide you with a wealth of useful information and facilitate the scientific exchange with other investigators in the field. If you are a physician interested in clinical translation of pre-clinical research, you shouldn’t miss this opportunity to present your ideas. Early registration is highly recommended because the number of participants is limited to 160, to stimulate discussion.
Where daily online IGRT is in use, the accepted methodology for margin calculation can be difficult to apply. We will present the new report from the BIR into this topic, and discuss how residual errors such as delineation error, deformation error, rotational variation, matching error amongst others can be measured and incorporated into a CTV-PTV margin formula.

Practical radiation protection: innovation and challenges for 2020 and beyond.
The last few years have seen a variety of changes and challenges in the RP community with the implementation of the 2013 EURATOM Basic Safety Standards into UK legislation and the impact of BREXIT. The focus is how we address these challenges from a practical stand point, and how implementation has worked for example:
This conference intends to address these and other concepts from a practical standpoint with presentations from across all areas of the RP community, from the medical field to non-nuclear with speakers with experience as RPAs, RWAs, regulators, instrumentation and dosimetry experts .
After a sell-out event in 2019, this event is back again in London for 2020!

Radiation Biology and Modelling
National Physical Laboratory, Teddington
Practical and theoretical course on radiobiology and modelling to support clinical/research staff working in radiotherapy and related fields.
Develop a fundamental, theoretical and practical understanding of all aspects of clinical and pre-clinical radiation biology.
Familiarity with radiobiological models and their use in creating radio-biologically optimized treatment plans
Appreciation of the technical challenges and considerations involved in radiation biology experimentation
Awareness of/training in computing tools (free software) designed to complement radiotherapy treatments
More information available here.
The conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field. Our multidisciplinary programme combines expertise from across the breadth of brain tumour research, together with insights from allied disciplines, to spark new opportunities for collaborative research.
Although survival rates for most cancers have shown an encouraging upward trend, the fearsome complexity of the brain, and the plethora of different disease subtypes, has left brain tumour survival languishing at the bottom of the table.
Our intention is to provide a stimulating environment where scientists from across the research pipeline can showcase new discoveries, spark new collaborations, and create the synergy needed to accelerate progress for patients.

2020 International Symposium of Innovations & Applications of Monitoring Oxygenation & Ventilation (IAMPOV)
June 11 – 14 2020
London, England at the City, University of London
City, University of London, the FDA’s Center for Devices & Radiological Health (CDRH), and the Society for Technology in Anesthesia are pleased to announce the 2020 International Symposium of Innovations & Applications of Monitoring Oxygenation & Ventilation (IAMPOV).
The goal of this unique meeting is to explore new developments and innovations in perfusion, oxygenation and ventilation monitoring technologies and clinical applications. The international roster of speakers is an assembly of world renowned scientists and clinicians in the fields of engineering, physics, and medicine. Articles and abstracts generated from this symposium will be published in an upcoming supplement of the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia.
IAMPOV 2020 follows the previously held symposiums; 2015 at St Luke’s International University, Japan, 2012 at Yale University, 2007 at Duke University, and 2002 in Lübeck, Germany. These meetings have traditionally attracted more than 150 participants. We anticipate the upcoming symposium will have an attendance of 200 medical professionals, engineers and device developers.
The 2020 planning committee has sought internationally known speakers to present topics relevant to the monitoring of oxygenation and ventilation. The format of the program will include plenary lectures, scientific poster presentations and opportunity for vendor participation through scientific exhibits. The ultimate goal is to establish an environment leading to greater collaboration between academics, clinicians and industry.
