Since 1992, the Quantitative InfraRed Thermography (QIRT) conference is a biannual international forum which brings together specialists from industry and academia, who share an active interest in the latest developments of science, experimental practices and instrumentation, related to IR thermography.

Following conferences in Paris (1992), Sorrento (1994), Stuttgart (1996), Lodz (1998), Reims (2000), Dubrovnik (2002), Brussels (2004), Padova (2006), Krakow (2008), Québec City (2010) and Naples (2012), the 12th Quantitative InfraRed Thermography Conference, QIRT 2014, will take place on July 7-11, 2014, at the Mechanics & Engineering Institute of Bordeaux.


QIRT 2014 will cover, but will not be limited to, the following topics:

·         State of the art and evolution in the field of IR scanners and imaging systems allowing quantitative measurements and related data acquisition and processing.

·         Integration of thermographic systems and multispectral analysis. Related problems like: calibration and characterization of IR cameras, emissivity determination, absorption in media, spurious radiations, 3D measurements, certification and standardization.

·         Thermal effects induced e.g. by electromagnetic fields, elastic waves or mechanical stresses.

·         Application of IR thermography to radiometry, thermometry and physical parameters identification in all fields such as: industrial processes, material sciences, thermo-fluid dynamics, energetics, non-destructive evaluation, cultural heritage, environment, medicine, biomedical science, food production…
