The NACP symposium is a meeting for medical physicists and will cover subjects of interest for medical physicists working within the fields of diagnostics and therapy. The meeting will focus on technical issues within diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy, and aims to include discussions of clinical practice.
The symposium will consist of plenary sessions, parallel sessions and clinical application workshops.
The overall theme for NACP2020 is "Novel medical technologies - applications, assessment, and implementation". In addition to a scientific program with invited talks trying to catch some of the most innovative and significant technologies and trends in the horizon, an important vision about the symposium is to facilitate interaction between research groups and clinical environments. In addition to traditional scientific sessions, the symposium will include more informal workshops for exchange of knowledge about clinical procedures and challenges.
Therefore, abstracts can be submitted to either the “Main program” or to ”Clinical application workshops”. Contributions to the main program follow a traditional research format (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion), whereas a contribution to a clinical application workshop have a more free format and can e.g. be inspired by a clinical need or a practical problem without any systematic results to report. Abstract length is maximum 3000 characters (including space) with up to 2 figures or tables.
All submitted abstract from 2020 will be made available for updates and amendments. If no amendments are necessary, submitting author can reconfirm their abstract submission. Abstract submitted in 2020 that are not amended or reconfirmed are considered obsolete and will not be concidered for NACP in 2021. In addition to this, of course, there is an opportunity to submit completely new abstracts.
Timeline for abstract submission :
Abstract submission deadline: December 1
Estimated abstract feedback: January 4
Registration deadline for symposium participation: January 11
Fast track review
Like for previous NACP symposia, it is the intention to offer publication of a selected number of articles via fast track review in journal volumes dedicated to NACP 2020. Agreements have been settled with Acta Oncologica and MDPI Diagnostics to publish articles related to radiotherapy and diagnostic methods respectively.
The NACP2020 scientific committee will invite a selection of the abstract authors to submit a more elaborate manuscript based on their work.
