The IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium & Medical Imaging Conference 2019 (IEEE NSS-MIC) is the twenty-sixth international symposium on room-temperature semiconductor x-ray and gamma-ray detectors.
Kromek will be at booth 415/416 opposite the coffee area.
About the IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium & Medical Imaging Conference
The IEEE NSS-MIC is the leading annual international meeting for all scientists, engineers, researchers, medical physicists and students with an interest in radiation detectors, related technologies and their applications. Exciting developments and new directions are emerging in many areas of our field so please look at the NSS, MIC and RTSD sections for the updated lists of the topics that will be covered by the meeting this year. Whilst delegates typically have a primary interest in either the NSS or the MIC, due to the synergy between the two meetings many attend sessions from both. This year’s meeting will also host the 26th International Symposium on Room-Temperature X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Detectors.
The programme includes some outstanding plenary speaker sessions, a range of educational courses and specialist workshops on hot topics. A large industrial exhibition provides an opportunity to visit the major suppliers of radiation instrumentation and related products all under one roof, and interaction with colleagues in the industry is encouraged in associated technical sessions.
The conference will be held in the centrally located Manchester Central Convention Centre, which has been developed from the abandoned historic Manchester Central Railway Station. The main station concourse, with its spectacular single-span arched roof, will accommodate the industrial exhibition together with poster sessions and coffee areas.
The venue – Manchester Central Convention Centre
The conference will be held in the centrally located Manchester Central Convention Centre, which was in past years the historic Manchester Central Railway Station. The main station concourse will accommodate the exhibition together with poster sessions and coffee areas.
It takes a little over two hours to reach Manchester from London and Manchester also has direct connections to most major UK cities. Services arrive at Piccadilly or Victoria stations where passengers can connect with Metrolink trams for easy access to the city centre. Manchester Central is a 20-minute walk from Piccadilly Station or just five minutes by taxi. Alternatively, catch a connecting train to Oxford Road Station – just five minutes from Manchester Central on foot.
Manchester Airport is a major international hub just nine miles (14.5km) from the city centre. It serves more than 200 destinations worldwide including direct routes to nine US cities. From the airport, the city is approximately 25 minutes away by taxi or just 20 minutes via the half-hourly express rail service (tickets £3.00-£4.00).
