QIRT'2016 - 13th Quantitative InfraRed Thermography Conference

QIRT Working Group5, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

Submission is now officially open!

The 13th International Quantitative InfraRed Thermography Conference (QIRT 2016) will take place in Gdansk, Poland from 4 July to 8 July 2016 and will be hosted by the /Gdansk University of Technology (GUT)/, the Biomedical Engineering Department.

Areas of Interest

In the 13^th QIRT edition, special emphasis will be given to the following topics:

  • State-of-the-art and evolution in the field of infrared scanners and imaging systems allowing quantitative measurements, and related data acquisition and storing systems.
  • Calibration and characterization of infrared cameras and related problems like certification, standardization, emissivity determination, absorption in media, spurious radiations, three dimensionality of observed objects.
  • Data reduction and image processing related to infrared thermography.
  • Application of infrared thermography to radiometry, thermometry, and physical parameters identification, 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 other.


    The participants are invited to submit by November 20, 2015 an extended abstract of 2 pages (letter size A4 format), either for oral or poster presentation, including key figures and main results. A book of abstracts will be distributed at the conference. Following acceptance notification, camera ready, full paper of 6-10 pages including color figures should be submitted by April 30th, 2016.

    Web-based Proceedings and possible publication in the QIRT Journal

    Presented papers (oral and posters) will be published online in the QIRT Open-Archives, which can be found at the website: www.qirt.org. A USB flash drive with all conference papers will be also distributed to the conference participants. After the conference, the Scientific Committee will carry out a pre-selection of the most prominent presented papers for a possible publication in Quantitative InfraRed Thermography Journal after a subsequent review by two experts.

    Students Competition

    Among the manuscripts submitted by young scientists (as a first author, undergraduate and graduate students) through a competition the best paper will be awarded.
