MediNet.png Network's Meetings  


Final Network Meeting of MediNet, (MedAustron, Wiener Neustadt, 7-9 October, 2019)

MediNet.pngMediNet.pngMediNet.png Final Network Meeting

The meeting will take place in Wiener Neustadt, Austria, the town hosting MedAustron ion-beam therapy center.

The town of Wiener Neustadt is located at seventy kilometers from Vienna and it can be reached by train in approximately one hour and twenty minutes from the airport. The meeting will start at 9:00 am of Monday 7 October and will end at 15:00 pm of Wednesday 9 October, 2019.

Together with the presentation of the activities of MediNet groups, the meeting will include a poster session. The presence of PhD students and young researchers is strongly encouraged.

Further details, practical information, and the preliminary agenda will be added in a dedicated webpage at the beginning of May. Please save the date, we hope to see you all attending this concluding activity of our network.

MediNet task2 Microdosimetry in ion-beam therapy for beginners (Wiener Neustadt, October 9-10, 2019)


One-day training: 'Microdosimetry in ion-beam therapy for beginners'. Satellite meeting of the Final MediNet Network Meeting.

The idea of this activity originated from the fortunate circumstance that three PhD programs should start, almost at the same time, in different European institutes on ‘Microdosimetry and proton/carbon-ion beam therapy’. This meeting is organized in particular for those young researchers, but it is open to the research community. The two main goals are creating a ‘common language’ in microdosimetry in ion-beam therapy and initiating collaborations between the research groups in Europe in the field of microdosimetry applied to ion-beam therapy, avoiding overlapping and promoting complementarity between the programs.

The tentative program. First half day, Wednesday 9 October from 15:00-18:30:

  • Brief presentation of the specific research activities of the participants
  • Microdosimetry and ion-beams therapy (Paolo Colautti, tentative title)
  • Translation of concepts and methodologies from conventional microdosimetry to ion-beam therapy microdosimetry (Giulio Magrin)

Second half-day, Thursday 10 October, 9:00-15:00

  • Acquisition of experimental microdosimetric spectra
  • How to apply microdosimetric methodologies to real data
