JUNE 28--InfraMation 2004 will be the fifth consecutive Thermographers' Conference held by the Infrared Training Center (ITC) and FLIR Systems (North Billerica, MA). The event, which has become a major international gathering of thermographers, this year offers a program of 50 peer-reviewed presentations and 10 topical working clinics featuring a variety of field studies, techniques, valuable tips, and best practices in infrared thermography and other nondestructive-testing applications.
InfraMation is organized by the ITC, the world's only ISO 9001 certified IR training resource, and FLIR Systems, a leader in infrared products and technology. The event is sanctioned by ITC, and attendance provides continuing education credit toward professional thermography recertification. A proceedings will be published and available in printed form and on CD-ROM.
The mission of InfraMation is to promote the exchange of thermography information among a broad spectrum of industrial, medical, academic professionals, and researchers. To achieve this goal, InfraMation 2004 will offer a wide range of tutorial clinics. Offerings include a full day on building science and three-hour clinics on medical applications, research & development, equine thermography, automation, roof inspection, electrical surveys, mechanical applications, as well as tutorial clinics on selling IR inspection services, what is IR thermography and what can it do for me?¿a primer for non thermographers, and thermacam reporter software.
InfraMation 2004 will be held in Las Vegas, NV, October 2--6. It will be headquartered at The Orleans Hotel and Casino. For more details about InfraMation 2004, visit www.inframation.org.
