February 3, 2006 FIRST CIRCULAR

About The Conference

This is the first announcement of the 3rd International Conference IMAGING 2006 to be
held in Stockholm, Sweden from June 27 - 30, 2006. The conference is the third in a
series focusing on various applications and methods using electronic detectors for imaging.

Conference Web Site: www.particle.kth.se/imaging2006

Topics to be covered include:
* Imaging Detector Systems for Nuclear and Particle Physics
* X-ray imaging in Medicine and Biology
* PET and SPECT
* Gamma- and X-Ray Astronomy
* Imaging in Astrophysics
* Non-destructive Testing
* Security Screening

CONTRIBUTIONS AND PROCEEDINGS

Deadline for abstract submisson is April 15, 2006. All accepted
contributed papers will be selected for oral presentation or for
poster presentation and the abstracts will be distributed at the
conference. The proceedings will after a peer review procedure be
published in Nucl. Instr. Meth.

For submission of the one page abstract, please go to the conference
