Focus Issue of Physica Medica – European Journal of Medical Physics
Full papers from Conference contributions will be published in a Focus Issue of Physica Medica on April 2018. This will be a regular issue of EJMP dedicated to the highlights of the MCMA2017 Conference. Members of the Scientific Committee of the Conference will be Guest Editors for this Focus Issue. Papers will be reviewed using the normal stringent EJMP review process. The deadline for submission of papers to EJMP for this Focus Issue is 31 December 2017. Papers published in this Focus Issue will be available for free download from the journal’s website up to 31 December 2018.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the EJMP’s website, after the Conference. Upon submission and on the cover page of the paper, please state clearly that this work was presented as part of the “International Conference on Monte Carlo Techniques for Medical Applications”, and please select the submission flag “SI MCMA 2017”.
