Dear colleagues,

It is our great honor to invite you to participate in the "3rd Romanian Conference on Medical Physics including CFMR`s Annual Meeting" in Sibiu, Romania from 22nd to 23rd September 2012. This National Conference of Medical Physics takes place in Sibiu and is organized by the Romanian College of Medical Physicists (CFMR).

It is essential that all stakeholders in medical physics ensure that proper education and training are in place, in particular with regard to new technologies and complex medical exposure procedures that have been developed in the past years and that are introduced into clinical practice at a rapid pace. This event offers an excellent opportunity to exchange experience and ideas between professionals well known across Europe and beyond. With great pleasure we invite you to have this important event in Sibiu and will ensure that your participation will contribute significantly to the success of event.

Sibiu is one of the most important cultural centers of Romania, placed in the heart of Transylvania, and was designated a European Capital of Culture for the year 2007. I am sure that you may have a wonderful experience of visiting this city during the conference.

Keep an eye on the website for more information and details of the opening and closing ceremony events and the rest of the social program.

The Romanian College of Medical Physicists, as host, looks forward to welcoming you to Sibiu in September 2012.

On behalf of the local organizing committee.

Best regards,
