Description: Developers and users of Monte Carlo techniques applied to Medicine in the clinic, industry and academy, are invited to participate to MCMA2017 for presenting, discussing and exchanging information on the scientific and technical innovations in application areas including medical radiation sources, radiation therapy treatment planning in conventional and in particle therapy, brachytherapy, radiation dosimetry, radiation shielding, radiation imaging and nuclear medicine, radiobiology, and their connection with the technology of inverse optimization, deformable image registration, machine learning techniques, parallel and GPU computing, etc.

MCMA2017 follows previous related meetings in Montreal, Canada in 2001, 2004, 2007, 2011; in Ghent, Belgium in 2006; in Cardiff, UK in 2009; in Seville, Spain in 2012; and in Québec City, Canada in 2014.The scientific programme can be found here.
The book of abstracts can be found here.The supplement of the European Journal of Medical Physics containing the abstracts can be accessed here.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to the author on 15 June 2017.
Notification of acceptance for late poster submissions will be sent to the author by 30 July 2017.Focus Issue of Physica Medica - European Journal of Medical Physics
Full papers from Conference contributions will be published in a Focus Issue of Physica Medica on April 2018. This will be a regular issue of EJMP dedicated to the highlights of the MCMA2017 Conference. Members of the Scientific Committee of the Conference will be Guest Editors for this Focus Issue. Papers will be reviewed using the normal stringent EJMP review process. The deadline for submission of papers to EJMP for this Focus Issue is 31 December 2017. Papers published in this Focus Issue will be available for free download from the journal's website up to 31 December 2018.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the EJMP's website, after the Conference. Upon submission and on the cover page of the paper, please state clearly that this work was presented as part of the "International Conference on Monte Carlo Techniques for Medical Applications", and please select the submission flag "SI MCMA 2017".
The instructions for authors for EJMP can be found here.
