The IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) offers an outstanding opportunity for scientists and engineers interested, or actively working in the fields of, nuclear science, radiation detection, high energy physics and astrophysics, large scale facilities, security, energy, and related instrumentation and software. The program provides a comprehensive review of the latest developments in technology and data processing, covering a wide range of applications from radiation instrumentation and new detector materials, to complex detector systems for physical sciences. Authors are invited to look at a detailed description of the NSS topics on the conference website. The NSS program format consists of plenary, parallel, and poster sessions. 

The IEEE Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) is the leading international scientific medical imaging meeting on the physics, engineering and mathematical aspects of nuclear medical imaging. The meeting will take place within the context of an increasing interest in multimodality approaches, both in terms of development of integrated multimodality imaging devices as well as in unique software developments in image reconstruction and processing, making use of synergies associated with the combination of functional and anatomical imaging modalities and beyond. In parallel, developments in radiotherapy instrumentation and associated treatment and dosimetry protocols, including the combination of imaging and radiation therapy, are continuously gaining ground. Authors are invited to look at a detailed description of the MIC topics on the conference website. The MIC program format consists of oral and poster sessions.

The 23rd International Symposium on Room-Temperature Semiconductor Detectors (RTSD) represents the largest forum of scientists and engineers developing improved semiconductor radiation detectors and imaging arrays. Room-temperature solid-state radiation detectors for X-ray, gamma-ray, and neutron radiation are increasingly finding applications in several diverse fields, such as medicine, homeland security, nonproliferation, astrophysics and environmental remediation. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of the state of the art in the development of wide band-gap semiconductors for radiation detection, including crystal growth, materials and detector characterization, device fabrication processes, low-noise electronics for readout, and applications. Oral and poster presentations representing a broad spectrum of research activities emphasizing either device or material understanding are sought. Authors are invited to look at a detailed description of the RTSD topics on the conference website.

In addition to this broad portfolio of session topics, various joint NSS, MIC, and RTSD sessions will cover hardware topics of mutual interest to all three communities.

A broad selection of relevant short courses will cover specialized, timely topics.

Vendors with products and services related to the NSS, MIC, and RTSD are invited to participate in the Industrial Program which comprises an exhibition, an integrated program of technical seminars, and a new Academia-Industry Matching Forum.
