American Association of Physicists in Medicine Southern California Chapter The Southern California Chapter of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine wishes to announce the Norm Baily Award competition for 2012. There will be two divisions again this year: any graduate student in a medical physics program in Southern California is eligible for the Graduate Student Award. And any medical physics post-doctoral fellows and medical physics residents are eligible for the Postdoctoral and Resident Award. Winners will be notified by April 23 and will be expected to attend the May 8th chapter meeting at the UC Irvine University Club, where the prizes will be awarded (details will follow). A cash prize of $500.00 and award certificate will be awarded to each of the three winners in each category. One 15 minute presentation will be made by the highest vote getter in each category after dinner that evening. We will follow the AAPM format: students should send a 250 word abstract with optional 2 pages of supporting documents (up to 750kBytes) no later than midnight on April 9 th. All submissions should be e-mailed to Steve Goetsch at: stevegoetsch@sdgkc.com We encourage all students, postdocs and residents in Southern California to participate in this program.
