It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us at the 18th Asia-Oceania Congress of Medical Physics (AOCMP) in conjunction with the 16th South-East Asia Congress of Medical Physics (SEACOMP), which will be held at Connexion Conference & Event Centre (CCEC), Nexus, Bangsar South City, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 11 to 14 November 2018.
AOCMP and SEACOMP are both important annual events in medical physics in the region. The objective of the congress is to gather the medical physics and allied health professionals in the region for the sharing of knowledge, expertise, scientific discussions, cultural exchange and medical technologies updates. This is the second time Malaysia is given the honour to host this event after year 2004. The congress is expected to attract more than 400 participants from the professions of medical physics, biomedical engineering, radiology, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, radiation protection, biophysics, radiobiology and the related fields.
The theme for this conference is “A Sustainable Future for Medical Physics”. We have put forward a comprehensive scientific programme including orations, talks by eminent speakers, oral paper presentations, poster presentations, lunch symposiums, panel discussions and some pre-congress workshops that cover most of the disciplines in medical physics, i.e. diagnostic and interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, radiotherapy, radiation protection, radiobiology and new emerging techniques. We also look forward to promote collaboration between the various disciplines and our regional partners.
Malaysia sits at the heart of Asia, the largest and fastest growing economic country in the region. The country enjoys multicultural diversity, a multitude of venue and accommodation options, as well as an exceptional range of travel experiences for visitors attending business and leisure events. The congress will take place at the Connexion Conference & Events Centre, Bangsar South City, Kuala Lumpur which is a new emerging and exciting city within the Kuala Lumpur Federal Territories. There are so much to see and experience in Kuala Lumpur as well as in Malaysia. We suggest you to spend some time before or after the congress to explore the beauty of this city.
We look forward to welcoming you in a warm Malaysian way, “Selamat Datang!”
