The Medical Physics Division of the Mexican Physics Society through is pleased to announce the Sixteen Mexican Symposium on Medical Physics to be held in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on March 1-3 2020 and invite you to be part of the biggest Medical Physics event across the country.
In its XVI iteration, the Symposium´s goal is to provide a space of collegiate discussion on the scientific and technological advances, perspectives, and challenges of Medical Physics in dawn of the era of precision medicine. The theme of the symposium is:
Physics in precision medicine: advances in diagnostic and therapy
Following the tradition of previous symposia, the Organizing and Scientific Committees are aiming at providing continuing education on basic topics such as quality control and dosimetry through a Pre-Symposium school, to occur before the Symposium, on March 30th and 31st. At the same time, we seek to offer attendants a deep view about the state of the art of our field. To this end, we are inviting internationally renowned scientists and clinical medical physicists to share with us their research and expertise.
And, of course, no better place to meet than Merida, the capital of the state of Yucatan. It is a place where present fuses with past and future, a city grounded in peace and hospitality and adorned by beautiful architecture. Merida is an embracing city full of history and natural beauty. Yucatan, with the crystal-clear water of its cenotes (underground rivers) and majestic Mayan cities such as Chichen-Itza and Uxmal, is a cultural melting pot that has given birth to artists, scientists, and one of the best cuisines in the world.
