2021 Winter School on Therapeutic Ultrasound

2021 Winter School on Therapeutic Ultrasound

March 7-12, 2021
Ecole de Physique des Houches, France
Organizers: Gail ter Haar (London, UK), Vera Khokhlova (Moscow, RU), Jean-François Aubry (Paris, FR)

This Winter School will explore the rapidly emerging field of therapeutic ultrasound. Topics will range from an introduction to the physics and biophysics necessary for understanding these techniques through to their clinical application. This is a broad and complex topic in which the synergy of a multidisciplinary approach is particularly valuable. The Winter School will encourage this approach. Each topic will be covered by an invited speaker who is a world authority in the field.

The institute is located in the french Alps, near Chamonix, a pleasant village of considerable charm and interest.

The institute is asking us to arrive on site Sunday March 7 after 3pm and to leave the site Friday March 12 before 3pm (after lunch).

You can find practical information at https://www.houches-school-physics.com/practical-information/

For those coming by plane, the easiest way is to arrive in Geneva and take a shuttle to les Houches. When possible, we will organize airport transfers from Geneva for small groups of participants. Please plan to arrive on Sunday March 7 and leave on Friday March 12. You will not be able to stay at the Institute before or after the school. Finding a hotel nearby will be difficult as well : plan to book a hotel near your Airport if you have no other choice for arrival or departure date.
