About

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.
All conference topics are intended to quantitative results comprising temperature values as well as further parameters on the tested materials and structures. The latter ones are usually obtained through active thermography, e. g. by exploiting non-stationary heat transfer processes activated by additional heat sources or by considering wavelength dependent effects.
Passive and active thermography methods and technologies are spread now along a multitude of areas of applications, which all profit from each other.
The QIRT conference series already started in Paris (1992) and took place every two years. The last four conferences were held in Naples (2012), Bordeaux (2014), Gdansk (2016) and Berlin (2018). Since 2015, due to the growing QIRT community, a sister conference series, QIRT-Asia, was established. Being held in 2015 in Chennai (India), 2017 in Daejon (Korea) and 2019 Tokyo (Japan). All conference proceedings are available through the QIRT Conference Open Archives at www.qirt.org.
