4th International Student Summer school
„Nuclear Physics Methods and Accelerators in Biology and Medicine“ (NUPHYMA in BIOMED)
Masarykova College, Czech Technical University
Prague, Czech Republic, July 8 - 19, 2007
A: „Nuclear Physics“
F: „Environmental & Life Sciences“

H: „Trends in Biology“
D: „Biomedical Imaging“
I: „Frontier Physics“
J: „Student‘s Session“
On the initiative of the University Center of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research ( UC JINR), Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU, Poznan) and the Czech Technical University (CTU, Prague) the first Summer School „Nuclear Physics Methods and Accelerators in Biology and Medicine (NUPHYMA in BIOMED) was organized on June 27 – July 11, 2001 in JINR Dubna to present the current status and advances in modern applied medical physics (such as radiotherapy, biomedical imaging) to summer students in JINR (total number 127). From the beginning, we included into the programme active student’s participation in the Summer School in frame of special student sessions. The Summer School is held every two years rotating between JINR member states (June 19 – 30, 2003, Poznan; June 30 – July 11, 2005, Dubna). This kind of Summer School to discuss the scope, success and prospectives of applied physics in these fields is necessary in order to distribute the new methods developed during the recent years between students.
Nowadays, after the long basic development of the nuclear physics and accelerators, the spread of physics methods in various areas such as biology or medicine through the organization of such a Summer School, is especially important.
2007 Prague School:
The Summer School in year 2007 will embrace also other topics like environmental & life sciences, trends in biology where the application of nuclear physics are also frequently used. As the location of the Summer School was selected Prague. The School is organized by the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics (IEAP) CTU Prague, JINR Dubna and Nuclear Physics Institute (NPI CAS, Řež). All these institutions are very active in basic physics (e.g. neutrino physics, dark matter). That is why the above written working session on "Frontier Physics", has been selected as one of the Summer School theme for the year 2007. The participants will be diploma students, PhD students and young researchers working in the different fields connected with the topics of the School.
A particular emphasis of this year's NUPHYMA in BIOMED is not only to train high-level diploma students, PhD students and postdocs to these interesting fields, but also to attract them to cooperate with the JINR Dubna in the fields where the JINR scientists play important role. One of the scope of the Summer School is to encourage young researchers to attend and take profit of the training sessions offered by the NUPHYMA in BIOMED and to facilitate free discussions between participants and lecturers (round-table discussions).

The section chairs and confirmed speakers are leading experts in the various subjects dealing with the subjects of the Summer School (see web page of the School). Young researchers and PhD students are also encouranged to present their research work either by short oral presentations or by posters. All reports will be published in a meeting proceedings which will be published by American Institute of Physics. Every participant will be informed about the acceptance of his/her contribution by end of April.
The meeting fee is 590 EUR and includes accomodation, meeting proceedings, coffee breaks, lunch and dinner, banquet, local transportation, etc. (details see on web pahe of the School).
