The 1st Nano-IBCT Conference is organized in the framework of the COST Action MP1002 (Nano-scale Insights into Ion Beam Cancer Therapy). It will take place in Caen (France) from October 2nd to October 6th, 2011.
This conference will bring together experts from different disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology, hadron-therapy centers, medical institutions) specialized in the radiation damage of biological matter.
In particular, the following subjects will be discussed:
Ion propagation in matter
Primary ionization in the medium, direct damage and production of secondary electrons
Propagation of secondary electrons and radicals
Electron attack on DNA and proteins
Radiobiological scale effects
Hadron therapy centers
