The 2018 Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) and Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, in Sydney, Australia, from the 10th to 17th of November.
This conference is the premier gathering of experts in radiation detection instrumentation with its applications in nuclear science, medical imaging, and space. The synergy created by the joining of the NSS and MIC is significant as it is an ideal atmosphere for the exchange of knowledge, generation of new ideas, and application of radiation detectors among academics, engineers, medical physicists, and physicians. The 2018 international conference event marks the 65th meeting aimed at bringing additional research flavours by encouraging participation of new groups of people to create ideas leading to innovation in radiation detectors, signal processing, and imaging. The conference is of special interest to IEEE Region 10 scientists who will be able to participate and learn from the large and diverse group of people that regularly attend every year.
The meeting will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, in Darling Harbour. The Convention Centre provides comfortable and quiet places for group meetings. There is also plenty of meeting spaces outside in the gardens or even on Sydney Harbour!
The Committee has put enormous efforts to obtain support for students, postdocs, and young researchers to enable them to participate. The Industrial exhibition will be an important part of the conference where many companies will present state-of-the–art radiation detectors, signal processing electronics and related technologies and applications. It is expected strong contingent of Asian, Australian and New Zealand industry participants will attend. The exhibition will be larger than ever giving, attendees a unique opportunity to explore the new equipment and exchange ideas with the equipment designers.
Sydney will be a new destination for many of the delegates. Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales. The Sydney Opera House is famous worldwide and within walking distance or a short harbour ferry ride. Darling Harbour is next to the ICC Sydney and offers many restaurants and licenced venues for casual meetings and discussions – remember November is spring time. This amazing multicultural city offers exquisite art galleries, theatres, classical music concerts, attractive China Town, Japanese Garden, Taronga Zoo, aquarium, and Hyde Park. Many hotels are within walking distance from ICC and offer a wide range of room rates suitable for student accommodation right up to the top-end Sofitel style. Don’t forget to extend your stay and make the most of the numerous discounted pre-and post- conference tours in Australia designed exclusively for our delegates through our travel partner.
On behalf of the entire organizing committee, I would like to warmly welcome you to the 2018 IEEE NSS/MIC and RTSD.

The abstract is what users and researchers will read when deciding whether your article pertains to their interests and needs. For this reason, your abstract is an extremely important and powerful representation of your article. As an author, you should spend time ensuring that it is readable and that it contains a complete description of your research.
In less than 2000 characters (including blanks, excluding headline authors, affiliations, and keywords), you will need to summarize your findings, and describe the implications of those findings. The abstract must be an accurate reflection of what is in your article as follows:
Your abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references. It should be a microcosm of the full article.
Your abstract must be written as one paragraph, and should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material.
Ensure that your abstract reads well and is grammatically correct.
When submitting an abstract for your original research, it is important to state the primary objective and offer any tested hypotheses. Describe your research design and methodology and accurately state the following: the methods and procedures you employed, the main outcomes and results, and the conclusions that might be drawn from these data and results. Include any implications for further research or application/practice. For those wishing for more detailed instructions, please refer to this style guide.
Summary Content Overview
The Summary is a more detailed document that will provide the basis for acceptance. The Summary must be no more than two pages in length, and ideally should have the structure of a short self-contained paper including aims/hypothesis; relevant background and references to previous work; methods; results; discussion, and conclusions. Figures should be included as appropriate. Authors must ensure that their novel contribution is clearly identified. There are no explicit guidelines as to the formatting of the summary, however many people choose to use the standard IEEE Trans. Nuc. Sci. layout.
Authors are strongly encouraged to focus on the scientific and technical content of the Summary, such that the relevant conference program submission review team will have sufficient information to make a proper determination. Summaries that are simply a copy or rewording of the abstract are unacceptable and the paper will be rejected.
Abstract submission deadline 2018-06-17
Double 3 x 6 booths will be only available as double until 1 May 2018. After this date, the booths will be sold as single booths. If you would like to be considered for an unsold “half of a double booth,” purchase a single booth and send an email to the Industrial Chair stating which booth you would like to have. On 1 May, you will be asked if you want to switch booths at no charge or keep your first selection. On 7 May 2018, any doubles not sold will be available as singles.
The 2018 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium, Medical Imaging Conference and 25th Symposium on Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors will take place at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) in Sydney, Australia, from 10 to 17 November 2018. This joint conference has historically been one of the largest and most important technical meetings in the field of radiation detection instrumentation and signal processing for high energy physics, medical imaging, photon science, space applications, homeland security, and much more. It always attracts the active participation of an international group of world-class scientists and engineers who present their most recent research results and attend advanced workshops and courses. It will provide an exceptional opportunity for you to showcase your newest products and services and we hope you can join us there.
For the past several years attendance at the NSS-MIC and RTSD has averaged about 2000, and we anticipate at least this many in Sydney in 2018. About 75 exhibitor booths have typically been available which usually sell out well before the conference. In 2018, we will be able to offer 85 3x3 m booths that will be located close to the poster sessions and coffee break areas in the Gallery, enhancing traffic flow through the exhibit area and interactions with attendees. Details on the layout can be found in the exhibitor prospectus ( 1.8MB). A limited number of double booth reservations will be accepted. Special this year will be a triple corner booth – but only one is available. All reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay submitting your request!
To allow the NSS, MIC, and RTSD communities ample time to visit with you, the exhibits will be open from Tuesday lunch through Thursday afternoon, with time on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning to set up your booth and on Thursday evening and Friday morning to dismantle it. To further enhance your networking opportunities with the attendees, a “Happy Hour” reception will be held in the exhibits area on Tuesday evening. In a slight departure from recent meetings and as a result of your feedback, this will be a somewhat shorter, earlier, and hopefully a more relaxing bridge between the technical sessions and dinner. The detailed exhibitor’s schedule is shown in the exhibitor prospectus ( 1.8MB). The Exhibition and Poster Session rooms are on Level 2. The session rooms are on Levels 2, 3, 4, and 5. You should not miss the opportunity to further increase your visibility to the scientific community by participating in the Exhibitor Technical Sessions. These will be held in conference rooms adjacent to the main session rooms during the time of the exhibition. Your presentations that should be aimed at providing basic technical information on the usage and/or performance of a product or service and be 30 minutes long plus 6 minutes for questions. These presentations will be fully integrated with the main conference program. The presentations can be submitted on the conference website: deadline 1 October 2018. The time slot will be assigned by the session chairman. Don’t be left out!
On behalf of the 2018 NSS-MIC-RTSD Organizing Committee and its General Chair, Prof. Anatoly Rozenfeld, I invite you to take part in this unique opportunity to present your products and to network with our world-class scientific and technical communities. Your active participation is crucial for the success of this meeting and we thank you for your continued support through your attendance.
We look forward to seeing you in Sydney.
