Presidentfs Message of The 6th Japan-Korean Joint Meeting on Medical Physics

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 6th Japan-Korea Joint Meeting on Medical Physics in conjunction with the 102nd Meeting of Japan Society of Medical Physics (JSMP) and the 43rd Meeting of Korean Society of Medical Physics (KSMP), which will be held from September 29 to October 1, 2011 in Fukuoka, a city of focal point for cultural exchange in Asia. Fortunately, this meeting will also integrate the 11th Asia-Oceania Congress of Medical Physics (AOCMP).


We are confident that the past five Joint Meetings were very successful and have contributed an important role to promote research activities in medical physics, while offering a great opportunity of cultural exchange between the two societies. In the 6th Meeting jointed by the 11th AOCMP, it is our intention both to foster scientific developments and to strengthen the friendship between Japanese and Korean medical physicists as well as Asia-Oceania medical physicists and physicists from other parts of the world. The scientific program of this meeting will cover all areas of medical physics, which are related to the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of disease. This meeting will feature scientific sessions for forefront researches, symposia on recent topics, and lectures by distinguished medical physicists.


In addition, a banquet and an excursion will be arranged as social programs. Finally, we would like to welcome you and your colleagues to Fukuoka this September.


Sincerely
Masahiro Endo, Ph.D.

Dear Colleagues:

I would be most pleased if you could attend the 11th Asia-Oceania Congress of Medical Physics, which will be held in Fukuoka City, Japan, from September 29th to October 1st, 2011. In addition, it is with great pleasure that this meeting will be held in conjunction with the 6th Japan-Korea Joint Meeting on Medical Physics. This is the third meeting of these academic societies and we are looking forward to welcoming you to Fukuoka, the Gateway to Asia.


The first day of the three-day congress is designated as the Pre-Congress Conference, which will provide the high quality educational courses for medical physicists. The second and third days of the Main Congress will focus on the latest advances in medical physics such as imaging physics and radiation therapy physics, as leading experts from all over the world will be invited to speak on cutting-edge topics. Moreover, special lectures and symposia will also be offered during the congress to discuss specific topics such as particle therapy, image guided radiotherapy, molecular imaging, radiation protection and quality control, and new advances in imaging and therapy fields.

We anticipate that the participants of the Congress will not only enjoy the intellectual atmosphere of the conference, but will also be able to get a taste of Fukuokafs extraordinary scenery and hospitality. As an optional excursion, participants can enjoy a dinner cruise with a boat tour around beautiful Hakata Bay in the evening of September 30th. We sincerely hope that you can join us in making the 11th AOCMP a complete success.


Sincerely yours

Congress Chair of the 11th AOCMP

Dear Friends and Colleagues

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the combined meeting of the 6th Japan-Korea Joint Meeting on Medical Physics (JKMP) and the 11th Asia-Oceania Congress of Medical Physics (AOCMP), which will be held on September 29 - October 1, 2011 in Fukuoka, Japan.


This is the third combined meeting of JKMP and AOCMP after the Kyoto (2001) and Seoul (2006) meetings. The previous two combined meetings were very successful and have made important contributions to promote research activities in the field of medical physics, as well as offering opportunities of cultural exchanges among Asian countries.


Fukuoka, which is the gateway city to Asia, is situated on the northern shore on the island of Kyushu. Fukuoka is said to be the oldest city in Japan, because it is the nearest city to China and Korea. One of the most famous sightseeing area near Fukuoka is Dazaifu, where there are several ancient ruins, and the notable Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, which is dedicated to education. Fukuoka is renowned for its delicious seafood as well as gHakata Ramenh, a type of noodle dish. Kyushu is well known for its natural beauty and in particular its numerous hot springs.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Fukuoka in 2011.
