IUPESM WC 2015 Host Chart

International Union for Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (IUPESM)

IUPESM logo The IUPESM represents the combined efforts of more than 40,000 medical physicists and biomedical engineers working on the physical and engineering science of medicine. The principal objectives of IUPESM are: (a) to contribute to the advancement of physical and engineering science in medicine for the benefit and wellbeing of humanity; (b) to organize international cooperation and promote communication among those engaged in health-care science and technology; (c) to coordinate activities of mutual interest to engineering and physical science within the health care field, including international and regional scientific conferences, seminars, working groups, regional support programs and scientific and technical publications; (d) to represent the professional interests and views of engineers and physical scientists in the health-care community.

International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP)

IOMP logo The IOMP represents over 18,000 medical physicists worldwide, 80 adhering national member organizations and 6 regional organizations. The mission of IOMP is to advance medical physics practice worldwide by disseminating scientific and technical information, fostering the educational and professional development of medical physicists, and promoting the highest quality medical services for patients.

International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE)

IFMBE logo IFMBE is primarily a federation of national and transnational organizations. These organizations represent national interests in medical and biological engineering. The objectives of the IFMBE are scientific, technological, literary, and educational. Within the field of medical, biological and clinical engineering IFMBE’s aims are to encourage research and the application of knowledge, and to disseminate information and promote collaboration.

Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists (COMP)

COMP COMP is the main professional body for medical physicists practicing in Canada. The membership is composed of graduate students, professional physicists, scientists, and academics located at universities, hospitals, cancer centres, and government research facilities. Every member has an educational or professional background in physics or engineering as it applies to medicine. COMP’s vision is to be the recognized leader and primary resource for medical physics in Canada. COMP’s mission is to champion medical physicists’ efforts for patient care excellence through education, knowledge transfer, advocacy and partnerships.

Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society (CMBES)

CMBES2_clear CMBES is Canada’s principal society for engineering in medicine and biology. The Society’s aims are twofold: scientific and educational: directed toward the advancement of the theory and practice of medical device technology; and professional: directed toward the advancement of all individuals in Canada who are engaged in interdisciplinary work involving engineering, the life sciences and medicine.
