Dear colleagues and friends,

With this letter, we would like to draw your attention to the top event in your professional field for 2018 – World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering to be held in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, on June 3 – 8, 2018. The Congress is jointly organized by the Czech Association of Medical Physicists (CAMP) and the Czech Society for Biomedical Engineering and Medical Informatics (CSBMEMI) on behalf of the International Union of Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine (IUPESM) and its principal member organizations – the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) and International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP).

This triennially organized joint meeting of medical physicists, biomedical engineers and adjoining health care professionals is a unique opportunity to liaise with your professional colleagues from all over the world, learn and share your knowledge, and discuss the latest research outcomes and technological advancements as well as new ideas in both medical physics and biomedical engineering field. Besides the purely scientific and technological topics, the 2018 Congress will also focus on other aspects of our professional involvement in health care, such as the education and training, the accreditation and certification, the health technology assessment or the patient safety.

No special introduction is probably needed for the Congress venue – the city of Prague. You can find here all kinds of historical heritage some of them dating back ten centuries as well as cultural treasuries of our times, worth of exploration in a spare time during the Congress. Prague is also regular destination of most worldwide operating airlines. For more detailed information and questions please refer to the IUPESM 2018 Congress web page www.iupesm2018.org.

Your active contribution is welcome and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful city Prague in 2018. With our most sincere thanks for sharing this message with your colleagues, both members and non-members of your national MP and/or BME society, and with kind regards.
