Important DXC 2020 Update –
the Denver X-ray Conference is going Virtual

After much consideration and taking into account the health and welfare of our Denver X-ray Conference attendees, exhibitors, and staff as our top priority, the physical meeting scheduled at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Rockville, Maryland, USA will not be held.


ICDD and the Conference Organizing Committee have made the decision and are pleased to announce that the Denver X-ray Conference will be held virtually this year, from 3-7 August 2020.


We are committed to preserving the long history and high standards of the Denver X-ray Conference. Although our 69th Annual Conference will look and feel a little different, the tradition of connecting our community through a virtual platform promises to be an exciting experience.  We welcome you to join us in this new endeavor, a Virtual 2020 Denver X-ray Conference.


Registration details will be provided shortly.


The Call for Virtual Abstracts is now open!
Deadline to submit:  1 June 2020

Submit Abstract

If you already submitted an abstract to the conference, you do not need to resubmit. If you need to update or withdraw your previously submitted abstract, please email Denise Zulli.

Virtual presentations will be housed on an event app, accessible during and after the meeting week through mobile and desktop. All presentations will be secure and only available to registered attendees. We realize that virtual meetings will be a new experience for most of us, and that’s ok! Specific “how to” instructions for presenters will be posted soon, and support is only an email away:


All workshop lectures and oral session talks will be pre-recorded, so there is no worry about technical glitches or time zones. E-Poster sessions will also be available, including an opportunity to vote for “Best” poster. Other opportunities for engagement with the event app include virtual meet ups, professional match making, employment postings, and Q & A. Virtual exhibits and sponsorships are also being considered. Conference content will be available through 31 August.


If you registered for the physical conference as an exhibitor or attendee, you will be contacted shortly regarding your refund. If you made a hotel reservation at the Bethesda North Marriott or any travel arrangements, please remember to cancel.

We are committed to making this a great conference!


In 2021, we will return to The Westin Chicago Lombard, Yorktown Center, Lombard, Illinois, USA from 2 – 6 August 2021. We cannot wait to get everyone back together to celebrate the 70th Annual Denver X-ray Conference!
