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.

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...

Abstract and Paper Submission
All submissions for abstracts and papers will be handled electronically via the conference website: QIRT2014.scientific-event.com.

Web-Based Proceedings
Papers will be published online in an open-source repository (the QIRT open-Archives), which can be found at the website: qirt.org. A USB flash drive with all conference papers will be also distributed to the conference participants.

Tutorials, Technical Visit and Workshop
In addition to the main technical program, the conference will include: a one-day short courses (Monday, July 7), Technical Visits (Friday, July 11). A summer-course on thermomechanics will take place the preceding week.

Student Award
Striving to stimulate young researchers, the organizing committee will award the best conference contribution presented and authored only by students.

Venue
QIRT 2014 will be held at the Ecole Nationale des Arts et Métiers located in the campus of the Bordeaux University, at 20 min by tram from the historic center of the City. Bordeaux is listed to the UNESCO world heritage. The city is exemplary thanks to the unity of its classical and neoclassical architecture (see www.bordeaux-tourisme.com).
