Dear colleagues,

We would like to remind you of the third edition of the ESTRO physics workshop on Science and Development taking place 25-26 October 2019 in Budapest (Hungary). For this year, the five topics selected by the ESTRO physics membership are:

  •  1. Computational methods for clinical target volume definition 
         Chairs: Jan Unkelbach & Ben Heijmen 
     2.  Multi-source data fusion for decision support systems in radiation oncology: opportunities, methodologies, standardizations and clinical translation     
          Chairs: Alberto Traverso & Kathrine Røe Redalen
     3.  Implementation/commissioning/QA of artificial intelligence techniques 
          Chairs: Wouter van Elmpt & Dirk Verellen
     4.  Clinical applications and quality assurance of surface guided radiation therapy (In collaboration with AAPM) 
          Chairs: Vania Batista & Hania Al-Hallaq
     5.  Plan Quality assessment: dose distribution and robustness metrics   
          Chairs: Christian Rønn Hansen & Lamberto Widesott
    In this two-day workshop the focus will be on open discussions in small groups and plenary debates rather than on unidirectional presentations in conference style. Hence, active participation is crucial. The number of participants is limited to about 40/topic, including participants from industry who should also actively participate in the discussions.
    The aims of the event are to:
    • Promote collaboration between participants
    • Review and achieve consensus on the current status and current needs within a topic
    • Define actions points that could push the whole field forward
    • Ultimately stimulate collaboration
    • Draft a summary paper on the outcomes


    Registration and more details on the workshop
    It is obligatory for all participants to complete a short survey in parallel to registration:  
    We thank you for your collaboration and look forward to hearing from you.
    Warm regards
    Núria Jornet 
    Chair, 3rd Physics workshop
