Meet our Exhibitors and Enter a Drawing for an Apple iPad
DXC is a great place to learn about all the different innovations and advancements happening in the X-ray industry, and our exhibitors are well prepared to teach you all about them. Lab ware, detectors, optics and more, our exhibitors display cutting-edge technology and represent the most efficient and reliable instruments and software available. See a complete listing of exhibitors and their product descriptions on our website.


Join us for a fun game of ‘Exhibit Passport’ at DXC 2014. When registered attendees pick up their name tags and program books, they’ll be given a ‘Passport’ listing each participating exhibitor. Attendees will be encouraged to stop by each participating exhibiting company's booth to receive a "stamp" on his or her passport. The more stamps received, the more chances they’ll get to enter the grand prize drawing--- an Apple iPad!


New for students:
Lunch will be offered on Monday afternoon to students and postdocs. DXC Organizing Committee members will be present to introduce themselves to the students and help them with networking connections and industry advice.


A “Best Student Poster Award” will be given at the Monday and Tuesday evening poster sessions. Winners of the award will be announced at the conclusion of each poster session, have their poster displayed throughout conference week, and receive an award certificate (mailed post conference). To qualify as a Student Poster, the work should be primarily of the student and must be presented by the student.
