The Blues Gypsys have just released their third album, "Everything but the Boots", and the band is currently promoting it on their album-release tour, covering several cities.
The Thermal Imaging Conference is a worldwide gathering of thermographers, and is sponsored and hosted by United Infrared, the largest network of certified and properly trained thermal imagers in the world. It is set to kick off on June 3rd, at a reception for all attendees, with The Blues Gypsys performing.
The Thermal Imaging Conference effectively kicks off the San Diego summer convention season, setting the stage for another greatSan Diego tradition and convention, Comic-Con 2013. But Comic-Con will not have The Blues Gypsys!
The timing of The Blues Gypsys is amazing, considering that Virgin Australia is also featuring special promotions specifically between Brisbane and the U.S. Flight Centre is coordinating that promotion, offering a free round-trip for one lucky Thermal Imaging Conference attendee drawing winner. (websitehttp://www.UnitedInfrared.com). And the band's music fits nicely within the "laid-back" crowd of attendees, many coming from distant countries around the world.
Another fun, laid-back feature of the Conference is the submission of images in competition for the United Infrared Awards, nicknamed 'the IMMY'. The IMMY is the name for the award for what is referred to as a "United Infrared Image". The United Infrared Image Award is one that best exemplifies an infrared image: one that tells a story,has a great title, and has great technical merit.
Any thermographer around the world can submit an image for the IMMY competition simply by emailing that image, and are encouraged to do so. Simply send a message to IMMY at UnitedInfrared.com.
The Thermal Imaging Conference is sponsored by camera manufacturers Palmer-Wahl, FLIR, Fluke, Testo and Soltec, among others.

National and international networking is a huge boon to thermographers who provide infrared services around the world. The fields of expertise of the thermographers in United Infrared include several areas in the building sciences: electric, such as switch gear and panels, data centers, roofing, block walls, moisture intrusion into buildings (where is the leak coming from?), energy (building efficiency).
Remarkably, United Infrared also has technicians skilled in equine thermography. In fact, the life science applications of thermal imaging show huge upward potential, as infrared cameras can often detect anomalies in living tissue, and those areas are also prominently featured at the Thermal Imaging Conference (http://www.thermalimagingconference.com)

Also on June 1st, JAL is launching service on its 787 Dreamliner between Boston and Helsinki--an interesting tie-in to thermography, given the use of thermal imaging in the capture of the Boston bombing suspect.
