Workshop Aims


The aim of this workshop is to provide the participants with the knowledge needed to plan accurate thermographic studies and to avoid common pitfalls.

The workshop will cover topics such as:

Understanding how a thermal camera works.

Which types of thermal cameras can be used in different situations.

Which environmental and physiological factors need to be either standardized or measured.

How to set the correct emissivity value before imaging.

How to exclude confounding factors during imaging.

How to plan data extraction from thermal images or videos without introducing artefacts.
