PROTONTHERAPYCO-OPERATIVEGROUPPARTICLESNumber 17 January 1996 Editor: Janet Sisterson Ph. D., HCLsponsored byA Newsletterfor thoseinterested in proton light ion andheavy charged particle radiotherapy.Mailing Lists: PLEASE help to keep the Particles mailing list up-to-date by sending me address, telephone number, fax number and e-mail additions/corrections. Ifyou live in the UK, I NEED your new phone numbers!Costs: At PTCOG XIX, the Steering Committee decided that part of the registration fee for PTCOG meetings would be used to help produce both Particles and the abstracts of the PTCOG meetings. Only part of the costs are covered in this way, so more financial help is needed from the community. HCL is always happy to receive financial gifts; all such gifts are deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. The appropriate method is to send a check made outto the “Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory”. We thank Professor Akine of Tsukuba for hisgenerous contribution which we have used to cover some of the costs of producing this issue of Particles.Facility and Patient Statistics: I am still collecting information about all operating and proposed facilities, regarding patient statistics, machine scheduling, and treatment characteristics. Please send me up-to-date information. Particles on the Internet: I am setting up a Particles Home Page on World Wide Web. I hope that it will be ready by the beginning of 1996. At that time, you will beable to download the whole newsletter, an article of interest, meeting information etc. Sometime in 1996, I plan to have all back issues of Particles and abstracts from selected PTCOG meetings on-line. Only the PTCOG meeting abstracts that I circulated with Particles will be available on WWW.1E-mail address Directory: I do have e-mail addresses for many PTCOG members, but not enough to set up a formal directory. So, PLEASE send me your e-mail addresses to add to those I have. ARTICLES FOR PARTICLES 18The deadline for news for Particles 18 is May 31 1996, for the July 1996 issue. I will send reminders by fax or e-mail. Address all correspondence for the newsletter to:Janet Sisterson Ph. D. Telephone: (617) 495-2885Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory Fax: (617) 495–805444 Oxford Street E-mail: [email protected] MA 02138Articles for the newsletter can be short but should NOT exceed two pages in length. I DO need a good clean copy of your article and figures as I am using a scanner to get everything into the computer. If you FAX me an article, please senda good copy by mail. The best method, however, is to send the article as an ASCII file using e-mail which I can down-load to my MAC.NOMINATING THE PTCOG STEERING COMMITTEEMichael Goitein and Janet SistersonJune and December 1995PTCOG is holding an election for the Steering Committee which meets at each PTCOG meeting and has the responsibility of guiding PTCOG’s plans and policies - which are always ratified at the subsequent PTCOG business meeting.
