Welcome Reception - Wednesday 17th August
ECMP 2022 will kick off with a Welcome Reception in our Congress Venue - St. Patrick's Campus DCU. As it will have been 4 years since the last in person ECMP, it will be a very special occasion indeed as we welcome old and new friends to our Congress in Dublin.
Further details regarding the Welcome Reception will be shared with all attendees in advance of the Congress.
Musical Physicists - Wednesday 17th August
As Part of the ECMP 2022 social programme we have planned a "Eurofission" song contest to take place in a famous Irish rock venue Whelans of Wexford Street just after the opening ceremony on August 17th 2022.
The idea is that a musical entity from each NMO would either play a medical physics themed song or something from their country that would appeal to the congress audience.
The prize for best entry is free registration to the next congress ECMP 2024.
In order to get a flavour and ensure that the audience are entertained we ask you to fill out an application form, describing your act and requirements and also upload a a link to a video of your song .
Conference Social Evening - Croke Park Stadium
Our vision for The Conference Social Evening is to offer attendees a unique and truly authentic Irish experience. When reviewing potential venues for this evening, we felt no venue would encapsulate this vision more than Croke Park.
For over 100 years, Croke Park has been the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). Our national games of Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie are played in this iconic 82,000 seater stadium throughout the year. There are a limited number of stadiums in the world that can match this capacity but what makes Croke Park unique is that it is the home of our national games, games played in front of 82,000 passionate fans, not by highly paid professional athletes, but by amateurs, participating for the love of the game, for their families, their communities and their counties.
With over 2,500 clubs all around Ireland and the world, the GAA is a beacon for bringing people together. No other movement quite captures the spirit of Ireland like the GAA and no other venue can showcase this quite as much as Croke Park. This truly unique venue will add great meaning and significance to the Conference Social Evening where we hope to be that beacon for bringing our community together in Dublin.
The GAA Museum is one of Ireland’s leading tourist attractions and we have included a complimentary tour of the museum for all attendees. Equally, for delegates arriving early for the Congress, there may be an opportunity to attend a game (depending on the fixture schedule) in the days leading up to the Congress. It would be an experience not to be missed!
