Thermosense is the oldest and largest international technical conference focused on scientific, industrial, and medical uses of infrared imaging, infrared temperature measurements, and image analysis. Its regular printed proceedings are found in most scientific and engineering libraries, providing an unequaled depth and breadth of technical information and reference data.

The Thermosense conference promotes worldwide exchange of information about research, uses and applications of infrared (IR) imaging technology. This includes infrared thermography and thermal infrared sensing primarily in the NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Thermosense encompasses technical papers, workshops and short-courses. Since 1978, these activities have included topics from the fundamentals of infrared imaging and calibration to virtually all infrared research and applications. Special emphasis has been on problem solving and turning new developments into standard practices. This year, we would like to have special sessions on (1) In-process monitoring and additive manufacturing, (2) Automatic inspection, predictive maintenance, quality control and AI, and (3) Multispectral and multi-imaging techniques.

Best Student Paper Award

The Conference Chair, Co-Chair and Program Committee would like to recognize outstanding young researchers with a Best Student Paper Award. The award is open to any first-author student presenting orally at Thermosense.

Prize: A certificate and a FLIR One Pro for iPhone to the student.

Academics, research and professional practical papers are solicited related to infrared applications (NIR/SWIR /MWIR/LWIR) in the areas listed below, and are also welcome in other areas.

Additive Manufacturing Aerospace Applications Artificial Intelligence in Infrared applications Automotive Industry and Autonomous Driving Building and Cultural Heritage Applications Calibration Detection of Gas and Other Leaks Drone and Airborne Thermography Environmental and Agricultural Monitoring Fiber Optics for Infrared Fire Analysis and Detection Food Processing and Handling Hyperspectral (HS) and Multispectral (MS) Imagery Infrastructure Infrared Image Fusion Applications and Multi-imaging Techniques Loss prevention Manufacturing and Processing Industries, Process Control Infrared Nondestructive Testing (IR NDT) and Materials Evaluation Medical Applications and Covid pandemic Power Generation and Distribution Research and Development Remote Sensing and Security Robotic Applications Standards, Certifications and Guidelines
