It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 11th International Seminar on Medical Physics (ISMP) 2019 of the Malaysian Association of Medical Physics (MAMP). ISMP is a bi-annual national medical physics conference of MAMP and has been organised in different locations in Malaysia over almost 20 years with participation of local and international experts and audience.
The conference was known as National Seminar on Medical Physics (NSMP) until its 9th edition. Since the 10th anniversary, the conference is renamed the International Seminar on Medical Physics (ISMP) to recognise the diversity of the nationality of the conference speakers and attendees in the previous conference series. The change also encourages more international participants especially from the neighbouring countries of Malaysia and beyond to come together in fostering Medical Physics research and clinical practice in this region. The conference has been getting bigger by year in terms of numbers of participants and programmes. The continued growth of our seminar conference series is an indication of its high quality and impact.
I would like to thank all the determined ISMP committee members in making this seminar a reality. It has been a great avenue to unite medical physicists at the national and regional levels and ensuring that the development of the field continues to flourish in Malaysia and the surrounding countries.
Again, welcome to ISMP 2019 and Malaysia. MAMP appreciates your contributions and participations in this seminar and the meeting will be both intellectually rewarding and enjoyable.
