2020 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) and Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) together with the 27th Symposium on Room-Temperature X- and Gamma-Ray Detectors is organized by IEEE Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS). The session will be held from Oct 31 - Nov 07, 2020.
Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
NSS Program & Topics:
The NSS program has been leveraging from the past years on the latest trends in detector technology, radiation detection, detector materials, new instrumentation techniques, and their implementation in high energy, nuclear physics, astrophysics, accelerators, national nuclear security, and various other applications in different radiation conditions. As many developments have robust overlaps in their fields, joint sessions are held with the MIC and RTSD. Workshops that will cover areas of specific areas of interest are arranged. Compact assemblies on a diverse traditional as well as novel topics of interest to the NSS community are also being offered.
Authors are welcomed to submit papers representing original unpublished work on the following topics:
Electronics and Methods
• Analog and Digital Circuits
• DAQ, Trigger and Front-End Electronics Systems
• Modeling, Algorithms, and Data Analysis (Monte Carlo modeling of nuclear systems, algorithms for digital data analysis)

• Nonproliferation, National, and Homeland Security (Safeguards, treaty verification, contraband detection)
• Nuclear and High-Energy Physics, and Astrophysics (Accelerator, FEL and beamline instrumentation
• Space applications
• Radiation Damage Effects and Rad-Hard Devices
• Dosimetry and Reactor Applications
MIC Program & Topics:
The IEEE Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) is the most prominent international scientific gathering that addresses the trends in physics, engineering and mathematical aspects of medical imaging.
Medical imaging is a continuously developing realm where technological advances in detectors and instrumentation and modern computational methods has paved the way towards advancement in detection, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring.
MIC 2020 has a unique approach to leading-edge research in multiple modalities of imaging, design, and implementation of new hardware and software techniques, their implementation in the clinical practice. In recent years the demand for applications such as machine learning and AI and other fast-emerging research areas has been increased.
The session is organized for students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior and senior researchers from across the world to join hands, collaborate and share ideas, innovations and the outcomes of the scientific endeavors.
MIC 2020 Topics:
• Recent innovations on radiation detector technologies for medical imaging
• Simulation and modeling of medical imaging systems
• Clinical emission imaging systems
• X-ray and CT imaging systems
• Multi-modality imaging systems
• High-resolution imaging systems (small-animal, brain, intra-operative, etc.)
• Other imaging technologies (optical, MR, etc.)
• Tomographic imaging reconstruction methods
• Signal processing, image analysis, and quantitative imaging techniques
• Imaging in radiotherapy, hadron therapy, image-guided interventions
• Parametric imaging and tracer kinetic modeling
• Assessment and comparison of image quality and methods
RTSD Program & Topics:
The 27th International Symposium on Room-Temperature Semiconductor Detectors (RTSD) is the largest forum of scientists and engineers producing new solid-state radiation detectors and imaging arrays. Room-temperature semiconductor radiation detectors continue to discover emerging applications in distinct fields such as medicine, homeland security, astrophysics, and environmental remediation. The purpose of this symposium is to provide an assembly for discussion of the state-of-the-art of the detector technology, including materials improvement, material and device characterizations, fabrication, electronics, and applications. To administer a comprehensive review, oral and poster presentations representing a broad spectrum of research and development activities emphasizing room-temperature-operating semiconductor detectors or imaging devices are sought. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts on original work in the following RTSD-related areas:
• X-ray and gamma-ray spectroscopic detectors and systems
• Crystal growth and material characterization for radiation detectors
• Pixel and strip detectors
• Electrical contacts and device fabrication technology
• Radiation damage, Long-term stability and Environmental effects
• Organic and perovskite materials for radiation detection
• Semiconductor neutron detectors
• Imaging systems and applications
• Spectrometer systems for homeland security, nuclear inspections, safeguards, portal monitoring, and other uses.
