Annual Scientific Meeting 2023
12th IAPM ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING AND IAPM WORKSHOP
We are delighted to announce the upcoming 12th Annual Scientific Meeting, set to take place at TU Dublin, Grangegorman Campus on Friday, June 16th and Saturday, 17th June. As a highly anticipated return to an in-person event after COVID-19, this meeting brings together leaders from all branches of medical physics to share their latest findings, discuss emerging trends, and explore innovative approaches to complex challenges. With a lineup of keynote speakers and panel discussions to be confirmed, this year’s meeting promises to deliver thought-provoking insights and engaging discussions that will inspire new ideas and collaborations. Join us for a day of intellectual stimulation, networking, and knowledge exchange!
Cormac did his Ph.D. in Atomic and Molecular Physics at Queen’s University Belfast and continued with post-doctoral work there and then at the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Switching tack in 2003, he re-trained in Medical Physics and is now a Consultant Clinical Scientist and the head of the Non-Ionising Radiation Group for the Northern Ireland Regional Medical Physics Service where he also leads the MRI team. He is a Magnetic Resonance Safety Expert for five NHS trusts in NI. He is a previous chair of the UK Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine Magnetic Resonance Special Interest Group, and is currently a very active corresponding member. He formed and chaired the IPEM working party that produced a freely available set of MRI Safety Notices (available in a number of languages), and is a member of the UK MRI site planning and MRSE accreditation working parties. He sits on the IPEM MR Safety Expert Accreditation Panel. He was a founding member of the American Board of MR Safety (ABMRS) and currently sits on the Board of Directors as an international member. His current interests are quantitative MRI, MR safety, MR quality assurance, MRI suite design, MRI and radiotherapy planning, 3D printing and Virtual Reality in medicine.
We are delighted to announce that applications for the Xiel Bursary 2023 are now open!
Xiel Ltd will be awarding a bursary of €500 to an IAPM trainee/student member or member with <2years experience to be used for continued professional development and conference/course attendance. The theme of this year’s bursary is ‘Advances of science in medical physics that directly benefit the patient pathway’.
If you meet the eligibility criteria, we ask that you submit your project abstract in addition to a PDF document containing a 1 page CV and 300 word statement describing how your abstract meets this year’s bursary theme to the abstract submission portal (don’t forget to tag your submission with the “Xiel Bursary” topic!).
Up to 10 candidates will be shortlisted from the submitted abstracts. If shortlisted you will present a 3 minute/ 3 slide oral presentation of your work at this year’s IAPM ASM held on the 17th June in TU Dublin, Grangegorman Campus in addition to a poster presentation which will be on display at the event.

The ASM will be hosted in the Central Quad building at TU Dublin, Grangegorman Campus.
TU Dublin has five campuses across the Dublin region with Grangegorman being their flagship campus in north inner city Dublin only about 1km from the city centre. It is just north-west of Smithfield, to the east of Stoneybatter, south of Carba and west of Phibsborough which has it nestled in between some of north Dublin’s most popular neighborhoods.
For those visiting from outside Dublin, the campus is a short walk from the Smithfield Red Line Luas stop which runs to and from Heuston and Connoly train stations.
The Central Quad is located right in the centre of the campus and is the largest building onsite with a large range of teaching spaces and informal learning areas. ASM talks will take place across the large Intel Lecture theatre with smaller nearby lecture theatres handling small concurrent events.
