Welcome

Greetings

Hirohiko Tsujii, M.D., Ph.D.Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite you to participate in "International Training Course on Carbon-ion Radiotherapy (ITCCIR 2015)" to be held from 9th to 14th November, 2015 at the National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS) and ion-beam Radiation Oncology Center in Kanagawa (i-ROCK), Japan. Please enjoy late autumn and refreshing weather in November.

The lectures will be given on the basic knowledge of charged particle radiotherapy with protons and carbon ions, including the rationale for this therapy, the physical and biological aspects, the optimal treatment planning, commissioning procedures, and clinical results of various types of tumors. We will also provide OJT and lectures regarding irradiation techniques to avoid potential adverse effects for each tumor site.
We are convinced that this course will serve as an introduction for those new to the field and as a useful resource for those currently involved in charged particle radiotherapy in a clinical setting.

We are sincerely looking forward to having your participation.

Best Regards,

ITCCIR 2015 Course Director
