Special Highlights of the Conference

It is our pleasure to inform you that the following special academic activities are arranged by the organizers to serve to the academic appetite and interest of the students and delegates.

1. IOMP School:-
International Organisation of Medical Physics (IOMP) is organizing IOMP School for the first time in India for the benefit of students as part of AOCMP-AMPICON 2017. Expert faculty from across the world under the able guidance of Dr. Slavik Tabacov, President, IOMP will be facilitating the teaching sessions on specific topics. This programme intends to benefit Medical Physics community, especially students and junior Physicists. The programme includes lectures and demonstration sessions to enable the Medical Physicists to broaden their knowledge, acquire new skills and improve standards.

2. Mini Symposiums:-
There will be few ‘mini symposia’ on novel emerging topics of Radiological Physics as part of the conference. Limited seats are only available for this. Renowned faculty from esteemed institutes will be facilitating the mini symposiums. The symposiums will cover topics of Radiation Biology, Quality Assurance (QA), Radiation Protection, TG reports, Radiomics of cancer, Molecular Imaging and advanced techniques in diagnostics and therapy.This will be a golden opportunity to learn and refresh. The diverse interests of Medical Physicists in the challenging modern healthcare system will be catered with these ‘mini symposiums’.
