WELCOME TO THE NCI-NSF SPONSORED WORKSHOP ON
OPERATIONS RESEARCH APPLIED TO RADIATION THERAPY (ORART)

National Cancer Institute
National Science Foundation

 

 

 

 


A workshop sponsored by National Cancer Institute and National Science Foundation.

Washington, DC
February 7-9, 2002
Hyatt Dulles At Washington Dulles International Airport

This workshop brings together researchers from optimization and operations research, radiation oncology, and medical physics to address fundamental problems associated with treatment planning optimization in radiation oncology. With the advancement of intensity-modulated radiation therapy and the associated high level of complexity involved in designing treatment plans, it is crucial that an interdisciplinary effort is made to integrate sophisticated optimization techniques into the treatment planning process and to explore cutting-edge methods of optimizing the clinical outcome of radiotherapy.

To help shape the course of this developing technology, NCI and NSF will sponsor a two-day workshop on Operations Research Applied to Radiation Therapy (ORART) to be held at Hyatt Dulles at Washington Dulles International Airport in Herndon, VA on February 7-9, 2002. Approximately thirty experts, from the radiation oncology, medical physics and operations research communities will come together to help elucidate the research opportunities and challenges, and bound the scope of the proposed efforts.

This site is continually being updated by the organizing committee. Please contact orart@isye.gatech.edu for more information.
