Sensor CFPs, Meetings & Training
The subject of temperature sensors and their use is
widely discussed in many technical venues. In the USA, the annual spring meeting
of the Thermosense Technical
Group of SPIE, The International
Optical Engineering Society, is a four day event devoted to applications and
technical developments in IR thermal imaging and measuring equipment combined
with a major exposition of Infrared equipment, optical hardware & software
and related services.
The Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society, runs two large expositions
in different locations in the USA each year which include many temperature sensor
vendors. In addition, many local ISA chapters have annual local shows, most with
technical papers along with the equipment displays.
Magazine sponsors several major Sensor Expos (meetings and expositions) each
year with both technical papers and vendor displays including several temperature
sensor features. Plus they feature a unique website with much related temperature
sensor information including reprints from their magazine.
See the listings
in the table below for current Calls For Papers, Meetings Schedules and major
Temperature Sensor training events.
IRINFO/2005, The Original Infrared Thermography Training Conference, Technical Symposium and Trade Show. Organized by The Infraspection Institute. Conference and Training to be held 16-19 January, 2005 at the Radisson Barceló Hotel in Orlando Florida.
Thermal Solutions 2005. A popular Infrared Conference and Training program, organized by Snell Infrared. Conference to be 24-27 January 2005 at the Marriott Suites on Sand Key,Clearwater Beach, Florida.
The SPIE's ThermoSense XXVII, the oldest technical meeting on IR Thermography and Thermometry applications. Conference to be held as part of the SPIE's 2005 Defense & Security Symposium and Exhibition at The Gaylord Palms Resort and Conference Center March 28-April 1, 2005.
Note: Thermography training for users of Thermal Imaging Cameras
is a considerable business and many companies are involved. They are listed seperately
on the page for Thermal Imaging Training.
Short Course on Temperature Measurement by Radiation Thermometry
at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland USA The course consists of lectures and problem-solving
experiments. Lecture material includes fundamentals of radiometric physics and
instrumentation for measuring temperature from thermal radiation. The exercises
provide experience in performing radiometric analyses to prepare for the experiments.
ASTM's standard E 1256 is discussed. Contact NIST for the latest schedule
FIXED-POINT CELL MINI-WORKSHOP
ITS-90 Fixed-Point Cell Mini-Workshop will
be given at the NIST Platinum Resistance Thermometry Laboratory in Gaithersburg,
MD on August 23-24 2004.
The workshop is designed to provide intensive "hands-on"
laboratory training in the realization of ITS-90 fixed-point cells. Using standard
platinum resistance thermometers (SPRTs), participants will measure the freezing,
melting and immersion curves of the ITS-90 fixed-point cells over the range from
the mercury triple point to the zinc freezing point. Additionally, part of the
course will focus on the development of uncertainty statements for the fixed-point
cells and subsequently SPRT calibrations.
Time will be split between laboratory
(85%) and lecture (15%) sessions.
The workshop is intended for calibration
laboratory personnel who are familiar with using SPRTs and/or have taken the NIST
Precision Thermometry Workshop.
lRegistration Fee: $800

The temperature measurement course information on three different
courses can be found at the Hart Scientific Web site.
Course EI-15 Industrial Temperature Measurement Engineering
day course, aimed at the industry engineer and technician who want to understand
how to select and apply the three major industrial sensors, Thermocouple, RTD
and Infrared Thermometer, is scheduled by ISA Headquarters and Training Center
in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
