1st MASR was held at Daigo in 1992 right after BSR92 (Biophysics and Synchrotron Radiation) in Tsukuba Japan and the 2nd MASR was held at Haga in 1997 right after SRI97 (Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation) in Himeji Japan; great steps followed the above two such as Grenoble in 2001, Trieste in 2004, Saskatoon in 2007, Melbourne in 2010, Shanghai in 2012, Grenoble in 2015. We believe we almost every 3 years came together to exchange knowledge and experience of using synchrotron radiation for biomedical use. Initial 1st and 2nd MASR were boosted at a time of a big tidal wave of IVCAG (IntraVenous Coronary AngioGraphy); nowadays our society pay much more attention to clinical therapy since 2010 in Melbourne. Meantime hardware of synchrotron radiation accelerator has been taking advancement greatly so that our synchrotron community is going towards advent of 4th generation light sources in coming say 5-10 years ahead such as ESRF, APS, SPring-8 and HEPS, a new synchrotron in Beijing. We have heard so that all of them will operate at 6 GeV coincidently. Furthermore in a same time scale XFEL’s such as at Stanford, Hamburg, SPring-8 have been in operation and others at Pohang and Shanghai would be in operation too. These could provide us with more high brilliance at least, even high 1st order coherence and high short pulses. At the same time instruments such as X-ray camera and X-ray optics based on crystal are intensively developing so that on this occasion it would be quite nice for us to meet together to consider synchrotron application to bioMedicine, Pathology, Clinical imaging and Clinical therapy in our bMASR2018. In this meeting the title of our previous meeting MASR has been changed to bMASR due to discussion among pre-stage Organizing Committee members. We are expanding the number of the members. In the second circular the list of all members will be announced.
The Organizing Committee of bMASR2018 welcomes all of you. This Conference is jointly organized by Institute of High Energy Physics, Beijing Advanced Sciences and Innovation Center and Asian Meeting on bioMedical Synchrotron Radiation Imaging.
This Conference held at Kuangou Beijing from October 23rd till 27th.
Following the spirits of the previous meetings starting from the 1st MASR (Medical Application of Synchrotron Radiation) in Daigo (1992), 2nd in Haga (1997), 3rd in Grenoble (2001), 4th in Trieste (2004), 5th in Saskatoon (2007), 6th in Melbourne (2011), 7th in Shanghai (2012), 8th in Grenoble (2015) we hereby have the 9th Meeting to have fruitful discussion by exchanging experiences and ideas in open mind, to enhance friendship, collaboration and joint projects and to foster mutual understanding between medical doctors and staff and synchrotron radiation based physics oriented researchers, while sharing a common target and goal for medical use of techniques which all of us are trying to develop.
We thank all of you for joining this meeting and wish everyone have a good experience in Beijing!
