  1. To initiate, review and coordinate activities on the innovative design and development of compact proton therapy systems, including gantry-less systems in combination with advanced patient positioning and immobilization, efficient on-board imaging, highly automated treatment planning and protocols including adaptive planning, and compact cost-effective acceleration technology.
  2. Formation of a task group to investigate technologies for proton treatment with patients in positions other than supine to facilitate gantry-less treatment. For example, patient (re-)positioning and immobilization, gravitational effects on blood flow.
  3. Formation of task groups to produce guidelines on the efficient clinical use of compact proton therapy systems without compromising the precision afforded by proton therapy.
  4. Formation of a task group to review the health-economic implications of improved access to proton therapy, such as cost-utility analyses.
