Xavier Maldague

Xavier Maldague, Ph. D., P. Eng. is professor at the Department of Electrical and Computing Engineering of Université Laval, Québec City, Canada. He has trained over 50 graduate students (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) with more than 300 publications. His research interests are in infrared thermography, NonDestructive Evaluation (NDE) techniques and vision / digital systems for industrial inspection. In 1996, he became Fellow of the Alexander von Humbolt Foundation (AvH) in Germany. In 2009, he was elected Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada (FEIC). Since 2004, he has held a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in infrared techniques for NonDestructive Evaluation (NDE), renewed in 2011.

Clemente Ibarra-Castanedo

Clemente Ibarra Castanedo obtuvo un doctorado en termografía infrarroja en la Universidad Laval, misma institución en la que labora actualmente como profesional de investigación para el grupo de Visión infrarroja del Laboratorio de visión y sistemas digitales. Entre sus principales intereses se incluyen las técnicas activas y pasivas de visión infrarroja, el procesado de señales e imágenes infrarrojas, el control no destructivo de materiales, así como los sistemas de transferencia acoplada de calor y masa. El Dr. Ibarra es miembro del ASME, IEEE, SPIE y ASNT.

Hermes Fandiño Toro

Hermes Fandiño Toro concluded his undergraduate studies in 2009 in Universidad Nacional de Colombia Sede Manizales, and is currently linked to the M.Eng. Program of Industrial Automation in the National University of Colombia, at Manizales. Currently, he is working on parameter measurement in thermal imaging for motor fault identification. His research interests encompass digital image processing and pattern recognition for feature extraction applied to thermographic images.
