Radiation damage of biomolecular systems: Nano-scale insights into Ion Beam Cancer Therapy
2-6 oct. 2011   Caen - France

1st Nano-IBCT conference 2011

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 and radicals
  • Propagation of secondary electrons and radicals
  • Electron attack on DNA and proteins
  • Radiobiological scale effects
  • Hadron therapy centers
  • Related European projects


Important dates

  • Abstract: deadline extended to August 7th, 2011
  • Registration: deadline extended to September 10th, 2011
  • Hotel reservation: recommended before September 1st, 2011
