Submit an Abstract

Submit an abstract for the opportunity to present a 90-second, single-slide lightning talk at the online conference. Topics can be related to any area of X-Ray CT.

The advantage of this year’s lightning talks is you can record the talk, so you can do as many takes as you need to, to get it just right! There are prizes for the best talk and a runner up. Details are on the event website.

There will be no poster presentations this year.

Image Competition

Submit your best tomography image to the Image Competition. There’s no limit on how many images you can submit, with a title and 50 word abstract for each.

Guidelines and details of how to enter are available on the ToScA 2020 website.


Register online on the ToScA 2020 website. The only cost for registration is a donation towards COVID-19 charities. Registration is still required so you can receive a link to attend. The deadline for registration is Friday 21st August 2020.
