25 – 29 June 2018 Berlin, Germany

Deadline for Registration: 28 May 2018

Online —  The biannual Quantitative InfraRed Thermography (QIRT) Conference is a meeting of the scientific and industrial community interested and actively working in research, application and technology related to infrared thermography.

It includes  Pre-conference Training Courses, a Technical Conference with more than 200 papers & posters and an Exhibition.

Topics

  • State-of-the-art and evolution in the field of infrared scanners and imaging systems allowing quantitative measurements, and related data acquisition and processing systems.
  • Calibration and characterization of infrared cameras and related topics like certification, standardization, validation, emissivity determination, absorption in media, translucent media, spurious radiations, three dimensionality of observed objects.
  • Characterization of optical and further heat sources for active thermography
  • Analytical and numerical modeling, data reduction and image processing related to infrared thermography.
  • Application of infrared thermography to radiometry, thermometry, and physical parameters identification and quantification, in all fields: fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, structures and material sciences, non-destructive evaluations, electromagnetism, medicine and biomedical sciences, remote sensing, environment monitoring, industrial processes and others.

The QIRT conference series already started in Paris (1992) and took place every two years. The last three conferences were held in Naples (2012), Bordeaux (2014) and Gdansk (2016). Since 2015, due to the growing QIRT community, a sister conference series, QIRT-Asia, was established. The first and second QIRT-Asia Conference have been respectively held in July 2015 in Chennai (India) and in July 2017 in Daejon (Korea). The third QIRT ASIA Conference will be in Tokyo, Japan. All conference proceedings are available through the QIRT Conference Open Archives at www.qirt.org.
