The Geant4 2013 International User Conference at the Physics-Medicine-Biology frontier will take place on October 7-9, 2013 in Bordeaux, France.
The conference will gather during 2.5 days developers and users of the Geant4 Monte Carlo general purpose simulation toolkit. It will focus on Medicine and Biology applications of the toolkit. These include the use of Geant4 (and derived tools) for:
- external radiotherapy
- internal radiotherapy, brachytherapy, targeted radioimmunotherapy
- proton and hadrontherapy
- treatment planning
The conference will be followed by a Geant4 2-day tutorial (October 10-11, 2013) with special focus on medical physics.
The conference is supported by the Geant4 collaboration. It is similar to the 2005 Geant4 International User Conference that was held previously in Bordeaux.

This conference follows the 11th Microbeam workshop on « Microbeam Probes and Cellular Radiation Response » that will be organized at the same location just before this conference. Participants are welcome to attend both events if interested.
