The inaugural Science Technology Engineering Forum will showcase some of the most significant developments across medical physics and clinical engineering; identifying and examining the key challenges that lie ahead for physics and engineering in medicine. STEF offers a rich programme spanning scientific and professional issues and is an opportunity to come together in person to collaborate, innovate and accelerate knowledge and understanding as a community.
STEF 2023 will include IPEM’s Biennial Radiotherapy Meeting, a key event on the radiotherapy calendar. Additionally, the Lord Provost and Glasgow City Council will be hosting a Civic Drinks Reception on the Tuesday evening in the City Chambers for attending delegates and exhibitors.
The programme sessions are built around radiotherapy, imaging and engineering, but will intentionally cut across traditional specialism boundaries, and explore practical avenues for alignment and collaboration between healthcare, academia and industry. The varied programme includes invited and proffered presentations, an RMU walkthrough, interactive publications workshops from our partners Elsevier and IOP Publishing, and engaging keynote addresses.
We are delighted to announce Professor Sir Jonathan Van-Tam MBE will deliver the Woolmer Lecture on Tuesday 28th February and the John Mallard Lecture, celebrating achievement in medical imaging, will be given by Professor Bas Raaymakers of the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
On the second day we welcome Carol Monaghan, MP for Glasgow North West and sits on the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, and serves as Chair of the APPG on Photonics and is Vice Chair of the Artificial Intelligence APPG. She is currently the SNP’s Westminster Spokesperson for Education. Carol will speak on Regulating AI and also provide the forum with her thoughts on the public and patient impact of the Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering Community.
Sessions will feature a mix of presentations and thought-provoking panel discussions and Q&A’s designed to generate discussion over contentious topics.
This interactive format will enable IPEM members and guests to together consider the latest developments across the medical physics and clinical engineering landscape, and the major challenges on the horizon.
The 2 day conference will take place at the University of Strathclyde, Technology & Innovation Centre, Glasgow on 28th February & 1st March 2023.
We are pleased that we will be joined by Elsevier, IoP Publishing, Southern Scientific Limited, Landauer, Oncology Systems, PTW, RaySearch UK ltd, Varian, Xiel and UKAS.
STEF - don't just come to listen, come to participate!
