It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 20th International Conference on Medical Physics and Biomedical engineering (ICMP) in Brighton, UK from 1st - 4th September 2013 hosted, on behalf of the IOMP, by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.
The conference will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the foundation of the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP). The IOMP was formed in January 1963, initially with 4 affiliated national member organizations from the UK, Canada, Sweden and the USA.The first ICMP was held in Harrogate, UK so it is fitting that IOMP has returned to the UK to celebrate its 50th birthday. In addition, the conference incorporates the 7th European Conference on Medical Physics and 2013 Medical Physics and Engineering Conference.
There will be an opportunity to celebrate the vision and leadership of the founders as well as explore the contribution that physics and engineering can make to healthcare. The programme will showcase current research, educational and professional development, and the contribution of industry to the field of medical physics and biomedical engineering.
The conference theme is 'New Horizons - Global and Scientific'. The past 50 years have seen unparalleled applications of physics and engineering to healthcare and, without doubt, this will continue. Medical physics and biomedical engineering seek to translate basic research into application for the promotion of human health. This can only be achieved through collaborations which are both multi-disciplinary and multi national; ICMP will provide an ideal platform for fostering them.
IOMP may be 50 years old but it is a spritely 50 year-old; ICMP 2013 is an ideal place to celebrate this birthday and see what the future may hold for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.
We hope to see you in Brighton!
