PRESS LUNCHEON

A press luncheon featuring some of the most newsworthy topics at the meeting will be held in room 401 between 12:00-1:30 PM on Tuesday, July 26. Topics will include 4D proton therapy, lighting up radiation-resistant cancer regions, first clinical trials of a mammography alternative, and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), in which onboard imaging equipment guides radiation more precisely than previously possible during a cancer therapy procedure. Further details will be given in an upcoming news release. RSVP Ben Stein at bstein@aip.org by July 15 if possible.

PRESIDENT'S SYMPOSIUM FEATURES EINSTEIN AND THE WORLD YEAR OF PHYSICS

The AAPM President's Symposium, moderated by AAPM President Howard Amols, which focuses on the World Year of Physics that has been declared for 2005 (http://www.wyp2005.org/). John Rigden (jrigden@aip.org), a physicist, historian, and popular science writer, will discuss how in a period of six months, one week, and two days, in 1905, Einstein wrote five papers that helped form the bedrock of modern physics. Medical physicist Peter Almond (palmond@mdanderson.org) will talk about the concurrent early history of radiation physics, and how news of Wilhelm Roentgen's 1895 discovery spread like wildfire and led quickly to medical uses of x rays.
