Str. Campeggi, 53, 27100 Pavia PV, Italie

Dear colleagues,

CNAO and IN2P3 wish to strengthen their collaboration around scientific projects focused on innovative radiotherapy. During this workshop, teams from both organizations and their collaborators will present and discuss possible common research activities around four axes:

  • beam monitors, online control and dosimeters 
  • hadronbiology
  • BNCT
  • modeling

If you wish to participate in this workshop, please register before November 15th, 2021

Remote participation will be possible but we prefer to encourage your participation in person. 

Speakers will be asked to strictly adhere to the timing (10 minute-talks).

Speakers from Italy are kindly asked to email their slides in advance to and Speakers from France are kindly asked to email their slides in advance to

Also, on a voluntary basis, please prepare a public version of these slides that can be shared with other participants.

Note that we do not provide funding support to participate in this event.

Note that a green pass is mandatory to enter CNAO. Access conditions to Italy from France are given here.

Looking forward to welcoming you to CNAO,

The organizing committee
