ECMP 2016

Dear colleagues,
ECMP’s major role in the international Medical Physics community has been to gather colleagues from all over Europe and beyond and to offer them an inspiring environment to define common goals. Their diverse cultural background has been the basis for innovation and vision. I am confident that the launch of the ‘ECMP welcomes’ project will further foster ties with our European neighbors and create new synergies.

ECMP provides a unique opportunity for all participants to exchange ideas and share their knowledge and experience. Besides our scientific programme, I hope you will enjoy sightseeing and archaeological sites in Athens. Early September is an excellent time to come to Greece. You will still be able to enjoy the sunny weather and beautiful beaches in Attica or take a cruise to the Greek islands before or after the ECMP.

I would like to express my thanks to the Hellenic Association of Medical Physics for hosting the event in excellent facilities and its President Dr Virginia Tsapaki. Last but not least, I would like to thank all of you for planning to attend the 1st ECMP!

Professor John Damilakis
1st ECMP President
