Welcome to the virtual 2020 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) and Medical Imaging Conference (MIC)

The safety and well-being of our participants is our priority. With the continued resurgence of COVID-19 within the State of Massachusetts, in particular Boston, along with the city’s prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings, it makes it an impossibility to hold the in-person event as originally planned.

The organizing committee is moving 2020 NSS/MIC to a fully virtual conference.  We were looking forward to seeing everyone at NSS/MIC in Boston, but we are excited for the opportunity to innovate an engaging virtual conference. The organizing committee is now working to create a virtual conference that will be rewarding for both presenters and attendees.

We’ve analyzed several alternative formats that will help us implement the first virtual NSS MIC conference in more than 65 years and make the program look as if the conference were taking place live in Boston. Our goal is to provide many original, creative presentations supported by interaction modalities that draw from new real-time interaction ideas. We want this conference to continue being a great experience for the participants. We will maintain and support the worldwide interaction between scientists and engineers we’ve become known for as a conference over the years by adopting advanced virtual conferencing tools.

We are planning to synchronize the conference to Boston time (Eastern Time—Note that the transition from daylight saving time will happen on November 1st in the USA), which will give the opportunity to most participants from different time zones to attend live. The plan is to have online, real time presentations according to our program, but also to provide recordings for participants for a certain period of time, so that they can efficiently watch parallel sessions at different times. For posters, we will proceed similarly and give every presenter the opportunity to present her/his poster during the poster session. We also have similar plans for exhibitors, using interactive tools so attendees can virtually visit booths and interact with vendors.

There are many ideas we have, but implementing them is not cheap, thus, a registration fee will be required.

We would be delighted to see many people participate in the first virtual NSS MIC conference, which we think will be trend-setting in a future where hybrid conferences will be the standard even when it is safe again to have in-person meetings.

More information will be sent out soon via this list and will be posted on the conference website. You can also contact us directly with questions nssmic2020@ieee.org

Travel Cancellation

Please review any previously confirmed travel, and proceed with contacting those providers for cancellation policies.  You may want to consider the following advice:

Flights: Many airlines are waiving the change fee on Non-Refundable Fare tickets provided you bought a ticket within a certain time window. Many airlines are also offering refunds if travel is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check whether your preferred airline has enacted such policies.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. We are looking forward to e-meet you in Boston.

Stay healthy,
Lorenzo Fabris
General Chair
