The 6th Annual Loma Linda Workshop
… on Particle Imaging and Radiation Treatment Planning
was held Monday through Wednesday, July 20-22, 2020, entirely online by Zoom video conferencing. As in previous years, it took place after the 2020 Joint AAPM | COMP Virtual Meeting. Invitations to previous workshop participants were sent by email in June. We added medical physicist Prof. Katia Parodi from LMU, Munich, Germany, and mathematician Prof. Walaa Moursi from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, and Dr. Nils Krah, imaging physics researcher from the Creatis Lab, University of Lyon, France to the organizing committee.

About the workshop:
The summer workshops at Loma Linda University are interdisciplinary meetings that bring together applied mathematicians, computer scientists, medical physicists, and radiation oncologists. Experts in related fields, such as radiation- and biochemistry and radiation and molecular biology, may also be invited. The workshops are organized in an informal setting: there is no workshop fee, no name badges, and no parallel sessions. We convene in a sufficiently large meeting room and on Zoom, inviting attendees to participate in person or virtually. Students, postdocs, and faculty alike present their latest work and new ideas and get feedback from the attendees. The 2020 edition repeated this format, although entirely online this time. The workshop intends to create a significant overlap between different topics and scientific and clinical disciplines that will enable us to work intensively together, exchange information and ideas, and finalize and start new projects.
