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

The 2020 Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference, together with the 27th Symposium on Room-Temperature X- and Gamma-Ray Detectors will be held at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts, USA from October 31st to November 7th 2020.

This conference offers an incredible opportunity for professionals in the field as well as for students to exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues across the world. The meeting had its origins in 1954 and has since then grown to become the only conference in the field of radiation instrumentation and applications with the broadest breadth of topics. It has become, at the same time, an international event held in almost all continents. The meeting was held in Boston in 1959 as the Sixth Annual National Meeting of the PGNS, and again in 1966 as “13th Nuclear Science Symposium, Instrumentation in Space and Laboratory.” We are finally back, a half a century later, as the Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference.

Boston is a lively and vibrant Northeastern US city, well know all over the world for its colonial roots as well as for a rich cultural and scientific presence. The meeting location, in fact, offers us an opportunity to experience first-person such heritage either by just strolling around or by taking advantage of local tours, or by doing both.

The program chairs are working hard to structure the technical program to offer our attendees a more streamlined experience. The topics will be grouped in a way that will make it easier to follow technical talks in areas of interest, without sacrificing what has become known as one of the best technical conferences in our field. Once available, we encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the topic areas and, when the time comes, to submit your work. The venue will offer excellent spaces in which to discuss and share new ideas, especially in the exhibit space, which is extremely large, offering plenty of room for exhibitors, posters, and breaks. Students will have the opportunity to interact with world experts on all topics as we are trying very hard to dedicate as much support as possible to facilitating their attendance. Soon, such opportunities will be listed in this website as they are finalized, or they become available. More experienced researchers will also have the opportunity to see their work acknowledged. Do not forget to check the award pages of our society, as well as those of our technical committees.

For those interested in the basics and in more advanced, focused topics, short courses will be offered during the first weekend and into early in the week. Also in this case, we are trying to make the short courses program more relevant and offer at the same time opportunities for those who are just entering the field.

Thanks to the proximity of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, we were able to secure an incredible amount of space where exhibitors will display the latest commercial breakthroughs in our field. Many breaks are planned at this venue while the exhibits are open.

During the week, several social events are planned in order to foster not only professional interactions, but to add to the social aspect of our community. I will be delighted, in fact, to host all attendees at the conference reception on Wednesday, as so will be the technical chairs for their own dinner events. I strongly encourage you to attend all events and to take advantage of all social activities offered.

The conference has always been a place where fruitful collaborations have begun, friendships made, and outstanding science and innovation have been brought together in a relaxed atmosphere. The entire organization committee is working hard to support this spirit with an attractive, excellent program and organization.  Driven by the scientific contribution of the attendees we are certain to have a successful and exciting conference week.

On behalf of the entire organizing committee, I would like to sincerely welcome you to the 2020 IEEE NSS/MIC and RTSD.

Lorenzo Fabris
General Chair
