Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the annual IEEE gathering, which this year is being held in San Diego, California, at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center. The conference includes presentations of the latest research and applications under the banners of the Nuclear Science Symposium, the Medical Imaging Conference, the 15th International Workshop on Room-Temperature Semiconductor X- and Gamma-Ray Detectors, and a number of Special Focus Workshops. In addition, a comprehensive set of short courses has been arranged in the continuing education program. The Town and Country provides an ideal setting for the conference, with ample lecture space, accommodation and restaurants on a gorgeous site that allows attendees to stroll comfortably from one session to another. Accommodation ranges from modern multi-story towers to quaint bungalow-style rooms. Adjacent to the resort is a large shopping mall, and a light rail system that provides easy access to downtown San Diego.

The program chairs have arranged an exciting and varied scientific program from the more than 1300 submissions that we have received. Integrated into the scientific program is an industrial exhibition featuring the most up-to-date products and services from a wide range of vendors. To supplement the conference program, a companion program will provide daily trips to some of the many attractions in and around the San Diego area.

On behalf of the Conference Committee, I look forward to seeing you in San Diego at the end of October. The Committee has worked extremely hard toward making this a stimulating occasion both technically and socially.
