Netherlands Respiratory Society Webinar Series


Science is about curiosity, blossoming of promising and novel ideas, getting inspired and connecting to other people. The NRS wants to provide and promote this for their members. Unfortunately, the NRS was not able to organize physical meetings in the past year due to the corona pandemic, while there was/is huge pressure on pulmonologists and scientists working in respiratory medicine. Therefore, we have set-up a new series of monthly online events: NRS Webinar, where you can acquire the latest updates within the lung field, and easily (re)connect with fellow members in our digital NRS cafe. During the NRS Webinar both a senior speaker and a junior speaker from different institutes will present their work at the online platform; sufficient time has been scheduled for discussions with the audience, via the chat or live. Every month a different theme is presented, and the program has been set up such that translational, clinical and more fundamental research is presented allowing for cross-fertilization of different research areas, various respiratory diseases and the latest technology applied.

For more in-depth discussions or small talk to catch up with researchers on the other side of the country, the NRS webinar is followed by networking time in the virtual NRS caffé. This is a virtual area in which you can join people sitting at a table in small groups and catch up on each other’s business, research activities, plans and challenging new hypotheses.

Please register here.

If you somehow miss the webinar, fortunately you can see the presentations later at a convenient time, as most presentations will be recorded and are accessible via the NRS website in the members area and here on Underline NRS page under the microphone icon/past sessions.

Hope to see you there,

Dr. Hermelijn Smits, President of the NRS

2021 Emerging Leaders Conference

The Emerging Leaders Conference encourages Missouri youth to become engaged in the legislative process. Divided into two parts — civic engagement and college access — this conference gives students an opportunity to build on their leadership skills.

The conference focuses on a range of activities:

  • exploring and debating community issues,
  • diverse political perspectives and
  • the legislative decision-making process.
  • Additionally, participating students access the college-planning process and experience postsecondary socialization and events on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia.

The Emerging Leaders program is open to all rising 10th through 12th grade Missouri high school students. At the end of the experience, legislators select 3-4 conference participants for a 2-day internship the following spring.

27 — 29 June 2021


The PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments (PETRA) conference is a highly interdisciplinary conference that focuses on computational and engineering approaches to improve the quality of life and enhance human performance in a wide range of settings, in the workplace, at home, in public spaces, urban environments, and other. Outcomes of this conference have a broad impact in application areas that include, manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, energy systems, security and safety, robotics, biomedicine, environment and conservation, and many others. PETRA brings together very different types of technologies to also address important social and healthcare issues for sensitive populations, such as the elderly, persons suffering from chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, and other disabilities or traumas.

PETRA (which means “stone” in Greek) addresses important human living needs. From a technological perspective, PETRA motivates and inspires new scientific thrusts, innovations and discoveries to improve living environments, a particularly important issue, in an increasingly crowded and complex world where the need for inclusiveness and connectivity with the rest of the world is key. For the elderly in particular, PETRA addresses the fact that, as people grow older; they will increasingly rely on technology to be able to prolong staying in their homes and enjoy an independent life.

The PETRA 2021 proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM ICPS program. The ISBN number assigned to PETRA '21 is 978-1-4503-8792-7

Errors Caught & Corrected Before & During Treatment 2021

Hear how Radiation Therapy/Oncology departments are catching errors from secondary checks though in-vivo dosimetry. In this presentation, Jennifer Clark, M.S., DABR, a Medical Physicist with Sun Nuclear, will offer opportunities to enhance error detection and streamline workflows throughout the course of patient-specific QA.

Learning objectives for this webinar include:

  • Unique sources of error during Patient-Specific QA, including beam modeling, transfer corruption, plan deliverability, patient setup, and anatomy changes
  • Limitations of Machine QA alone for robust quality management
  • Errors missed by Log Files
  • Examples of errors detected and prevented by Patient-Specific QA
  • Efficiencies and clinical experience with the SunCHECK™ Platform for thorough Patient-Specific QA

Jennifer Clark, M.S., DABR, is the SunDEPLOYS Customer Success Manager at Sun Nuclear in Melbourne, Florida, where she focuses on assisting departments with integrating SunCHECK into their clinical workflows for maximum benefit. She was a recipient of the AAPM Summer Undergraduate Fellowship and subsequently completed her M.S. in Radiological Medical Physics at the University of Kentucky. She spent nearly a decade in clinical practice in Kentucky, during which she developed a keen interest in incorporating new technology and QA devices into the clinical workflow to improve efficiency and patient safety. She turned those interests to product development at SNC beginning in 2014. Mrs. Clark is board certified in Therapeutic Radiologic Physics by the ABR.

Moderator: Andy Simon

13th Annual Conference on Understanding Interventions

The annual UI conference has grown from a meeting to a community of more than 6,000 researchers, program officers, evaluators, program directors, training faculty, and others within STEM, and now operates with a mission to mutually inform scholarship and practice, develop and enhance the community interested in educational interventions, and provide professional development for all STEM persons. UI held its first Virtual conference in December of 2020 in response to Covid-19 restrictions that forced the cancellation of the original March 2020 in person meeting. Born out of necessity, the virtual conference introduced a format that provided pre conference availability of symposia, Deeper Dives and Poster presentations. The 13th Annual Understanding Interventions Conference will continue with that design and we foresee future conferences adopting aspects of that format in reaching a virtual audience as well as those who attend the conferences in-person.

Attendees will experience plenaries, workshops, symposia, and poster presentations on hypothesis-based research on interventions and initiatives that broaden participation in STEM careers. The conference will continue to facilitate the dialogue among education, behavioral, and social science researchers, evaluators, and faculty in STEM fields who participate in intervention programs. Graduate students in these fields are strongly encouraged to attend. Workshops, sessions, and posters will communicate effective strategies from successful STEM intervention programs, present results from empirical research studies, and synthesize the translation of research findings into practice on STEM learning, undergraduate research, graduate education, and student retention.
