April 4, 2006
Workshop on IMRT
Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning: Target Uncertainties, Computational Challenges and Beyond

at the Fields Institute , 222 College Street, Toronto

Organizers: Eva Lee, Michael Sharpe, Tamás Terlaky, Yuriy Zinchenko

Please subscribe to the Fields mail list to be informed of upcoming events.

Overview

The workshop will explore advanced and robust computational approaches for: 1. tackling non-systematic errors in intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment planning; and 2. image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) techniques for incorporating organ motions and other non-stationary geometry into the treatment planning process.

The workshop consists of three core groups of presentations. The first two consist of talks by physicists, clinicians and operations researchers on image-guided therapy and robust optimization approaches for managing organ motion and uncertainties. The third, an evening event, incorporating the ongoing Fields Industrial Optimization Seminar, includes a leading optimization researcher presenting computational strategies for large-scale IMRT planning, and a physicist discussing computational challenges in the field.
