Micro- and nanodosimetry for radiotherapy

November 17-18, 2017, Glasgow

Increased use of light-ion beam therapy, brachytherapy using low-energy emitters and radionuclide therapy have renewed and increased interest in micro- and nanodosimetry applied to RT. Long term experience in radioprotection, space and environment exists resulting in vast experience with detectors and modelling. Aim of this workshop is to bring these communities in better contact, to get the detector community interested in RT applications and to raise awareness within the RT community of the potential impact. Some initiatives have already moved in that direction (e.g. BioQuaRT, MediNet, etc.) The workshop aims to address this topic in a broad sense covering all applications in radiotherapy.


V International Geant4 School

October 23rd to 27th 2017 Catania

The "V International Geant4 School" organized by Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN-LNS) will be held in Catania (Italy) from October 23rd to 27th, 2017. The School is aimed at PhD students and researchers interested to learn about the Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation code. Geant4 can be used for applications in high energy physics, astrophysics, medical physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear physics. A section will be focused on all main aspects of the C++ basic programming. Lectures will cover all aspects of the toolkit from basic installation through advanced topics. A special section focused on the Geant4-DNA module, will be organised on the last day.
