Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 18th International Congress on Neutron Capture Therapy (ICNCT-18) to be held in Taipei, Taiwan, from October 28 to November 2, 2018. 

The conference will offer the opportunity to meet and interact with multi-disciplinary experts in Neutron Capture Therapy (NCT), and present the latest clinical and basic research results in the treatment of cancer using NCT. Various groups related to NCT worldwide have reported significant developments in clinical matters, radiation biology, chemistry & pharmacology, physics & engineering, and boron determination & imaging technology in recent years. Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) had been used globally in clinical trials to treat patients with a variety of cancers, such as head and neck, melanoma, brain, and liver cancers. In Taiwan, our BNCT team has treated head and neck tumors and brain tumors, as well as developing a new boron drug for treating liver cancer. During ICNCT-18, the promising clinical results from our team will be presented, along with the encouraging results of NCT around the world.

The international conference is composed of world-renowned scientists from industry and academia, working together on the goals of cancer treatment. Clinicians and researchers from around the world will meet in ICNCT-18 to show their findings and generate new thought in the field of NCT. Many excellent papers and constructive discussions at the conference are expected, which will greatly promote the continuous development of NCT. Thus it is my great pleasure to invite colleagues in all professions related to NCT to the ICNCT-18. 

We warmly welcome you and your team and hope that you will all enjoy the conference in Taiwan's beautiful scenery and pleasant climate.

With Best Regards, 



    Prof. Fong-In Chou, President
