  • An introduction to best practices for refereeing a journal manuscript
    An introduction to best practices for refereeing a journal manuscript Professor Simon Cherry, University of California, Davis, USA Recorded: Feb 13 2018 45 mins
    Peer review is one of the most critical components of high-quality scientific publishing. It impacts on the timeliness, accuracy and clarity of research findings that—if published—will be accessible and visible to everyone for years to come.

    At its best, the peer-review process establishes whether the work makes a genuine and valuable contribution to the literature, and can remove errors and help authors to better explain their results and the significance of their work to the broad audience who may read the final journal article. At its worst, however, inadequate or superficial peer review can allow substandard work or poorly explained research to be published, which is to the detriment of the scientific enterprise. In addition, the peer-review process can also impede the publication of high-quality work through unnecessary delays or personal bias.

    The goal of this webinar is to address best practices for reviewing a journal manuscript and address some of the challenges and pitfalls that frequently crop up during the peer review process. This webinar is aimed at those new to serving as a referee for a scientific journal – whether that be more generally, within the field of medical physics, or for Physics in Medicine & Biology specifically.
  • Venezia – Reaching Beyond
    Venezia – Reaching Beyond Matthew Biagioli, MD Recorded: Feb 5 2018 61 mins
    Treating advanced-stage cervical cancer can be difficult without the right tools. Dr Matthew Biagioli will discuss a new option for reaching beyond the current constraints with the Venezia applicator for reproducible results and seamless integration into your current workflow.
  • Estimating respiratory rate from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram
    Estimating respiratory rate from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram Dr Peter H. Charlton Research Associate, King’s College London Recorded: Jan 16 2018 44 mins
    Respiratory rate (RR) is a key physiological parameter that is used in a range of clinical settings for diagnosis and prognosis. Despite its importance, it is usually measured by hand. Over the past 50 years many techniques have been developed to estimate RR from two widely acquired physiological signals: the electrocardiogram (ECG) and the pulse oximetry signal (photoplethysmogram (PPG)). Although these techniques have been the subject of much research, they have not yet been widely integrated into clinical practice. This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in estimating RR from the ECG and PPG. It is intended to equip researchers with the knowledge and tools to translate this promising technology into patient benefit.
  • Plan Explorer; An Automated Treatment Planning Approach
    Plan Explorer; An Automated Treatment Planning Approach Björn Hårdemark, Deputy CEO, RaySearch Laboratories Recorded: Dec 20 2017 61 mins
    Plan Explorer provides a new paradigm in treatment planning. This talk goes through the underlying algorithms, explains how to use the system, gives examples of plan configurations and provides an outlook into future developments of this feature found within the RayStation treatment planning software.
  • IOP ebooks - Meet the author Dr Emily Levesque
    IOP ebooks - Meet the author Dr Emily Levesque Dr Emily Levesque Recorded: Dec 13 2017 45 mins
    Astrophysics of Red Supergiants is the first book of its kind devoted to our current knowledge of red supergiant stars, a key evolutionary phase that is critical to our larger understanding of massive stars. It is also the first to publish in the exciting new partnership with the American Astronomical Society and IOP ebooks.

    Please join us for this 45 minute webinar with Dr Emily Levesque as she gives an overview of her book and answers your questions in a live Q&A.

    This webinar is recommended viewing for a range of experience levels, from graduate students up to senior researchers.
  • Computer Algebra for Theoretical Physics
    Computer Algebra for Theoretical Physics Edgardo Cheb-Terrab, Research Fellow, Maplesoft Recorded: Dec 6 2017 60 mins
    Generally speaking, physicists still find that computing with paper and pencil is in most cases simpler than computing with a Computer Algebra System (CAS). Although that is true in some cases, the working paradigm is changing: developments in CAS, and particularly recent ones in the Maple system, have resulted in the implementation of most of the mathematical objects and mathematics used in theoretical physics computations, and have dramatically approximated the notation used in the computer to the one used with paper and pencil, diminishing the learning gap and computer-syntax distraction to a strict minimum. In this talk, the Physics project at Maplesoft will be presented and the resulting Physics package will be illustrated through simple problems in classical field theory, quantum mechanics and general relativity, and through tackling the computations of some recent Physical Review papers in those areas.
  • IOP ebooks - Meet the author Dr Tristan Kershaw
    IOP ebooks - Meet the author Dr Tristan Kershaw Dr Tristan Kershaw Recorded: Dec 4 2017 45 mins
    Join us for this very timely webinar with Dr Tristan Kershaw as he gives an overview of his book Climate Change Resilience in the Urban Environment. This new book is one of the first to look at the resilience of whole cities as the world’s population changes from 70% rural to 70% urban in the space of just 100 years. It looks at risks for urban areas, including those risks to human health as well as building integrity.

    The webinar will last 45 minutes and will include a live Q&A session.
  • Radiogenomics in Radiation Oncology: More than Omics
    Radiogenomics in Radiation Oncology: More than Omics Issam El Naqa, PhD, MA, FAAPM Associate Professor Recorded: Nov 22 2017 45 mins
    The webinar will discuss recent progress and potentials of radiogenomics and its role in treatment response modelling as a bridge between dose-response and optimized outcomes.
  • Simulating Heat Transfer with COMSOL®: Knowing Your Material Properties Webinar
    Simulating Heat Transfer with COMSOL®: Knowing Your Material Properties Webinar Louise Wright, Principal Research Scientist, Data Science Group, NPL and Andrew Young, Applications Engineer, COMSOL Recorded: Nov 16 2017 60 mins
    This webinar is sponsored by: COMSOL and The National Physical Laboratory (NPL)

    If you are interested in correctly handling material properties in heat transfer modelling, then tune into this webinar with Louise Wright from the Data Science Group at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

    Heat transfer modelling is used in a wide range of industries and research areas, including materials processing, food manufacturing, power generation, and aerospace. Reliable model results require reliable material properties, but it can be difficult to know how to get suitable values, particularly if the model involves very high or very low temperatures.

    In this webinar, we will discuss NPL’s measurement capabilities for thermal behaviour and how they are extending these capabilities. You will also learn about NPL’s use of heat transfer modelling to design their kit and experiments.

    The webinar will include a live demonstration and conclude with a Q&A session.
  • RISE -The Complete Picture of Material Properties: Correlative Raman-SEM Imaging
    RISE -The Complete Picture of Material Properties: Correlative Raman-SEM Imaging Dr. Ute Schmidt – Applications Manager at WITec GmbH Recorded: Nov 14 2017 53 mins
    RISE – Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron – microscopy is a correlative approach that combines molecular and ultrastructural analysis. With this hybrid technique, information on the chemical composition of a sample provided by the optical Raman microscope is overlaid onto structural features imaged with a high resolution scanning electron microscope. Both methods can be controlled with software and the correlation carried out while the sample remains under vacuum. The integration of both techniques within a single instrument eliminates the necessity of manually locating the same measurement position, a notoriously time-consuming process with separate instruments.
    In this webinar, the principles of state-of-the-art confocal Raman imaging as a tool for the analysis of molecular characteristics of a sample will be presented, then the manner in which this information can be linked to structural information acquired with scanning electron microscopy will be demonstrated. The advantages of seamless correlative investigation will be described and shown with several examples.
