On behalf of the 8th Hangzhou International Molecular Imaging Conference (HIMIC), it is my great pleasure and privilege to invite you to attend HIMIC2012 to be held on Sep 14 -15, 2012 in Hangzhou, China.

HIMIC is an international scientific and professional forum in China since 2005, which has been recognized by professional attendees as the premier event of educational and networking opportunities in molecular imaging. As proven over the past 7 years, HIMIC provided the molecular imaging community with the most up-to-date and pertinent information concerning the fields of medical imaging, chemistry, physics, pharmacology, etc. We are dedicated to the educational and networking needs of this unique community of physicians, scientists, fellows and students.

The HIMIC2012 will provide various opportunities for the participants from different countries. Worldwide famous leaders in this field will be participating in the conference, sharing their knowledge and experiences with attendees. The 8th Anniversary of HIMIC, promises to be an attractive international molecular imaging meeting including 14 invited lectures and one panel discussion. In addition to our educational program, HIMIC 2012 is expecting many major manufacturers of equipment and products. A visit to our exhibit hall is rewarding Annual Meeting experience and you should not miss the opportunity to see demonstrations of the latest in molecular imaging technology.

Hangzhou City, which has been known since the 13th century. The famous Italian traveler, Marco Polo, wrote in his diary that Hangzhou is the most beautiful city in the world at that time. Currently, Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang Province, is one of the most economic advanced cities in China. I believe you will enjoy your time in Hangzhou during HIMIC 2012.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Hangzhou soon.
