The DIR international symposium is devoted to promote a broad exchange of information on technologies, applications, quality assurance and standards in the area of digital industrial radiology and computed tomography. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for users, scientists, equipment suppliers and all who are interested to discuss the present and future possibilities.
Now for the first time in Ghent (Belgium) DIR2015 will be a 4-day conference with over 50 oral slots, a poster and table-top exhibition and plenty of social events.

Background and objectives

BAM and the German Society for Non-Destructive Testing have organized a series of events on Industrial Computed Tomography and Image Processing, mostly in Berlin, from 1988 to 2011. The next event in this series is hosted by the Ghent University and co-organized with the International Association of Computed Tomography (IntACT) and will be held at the Ghent University Culture and Convention Center PAND, Onderbergen, Ghent. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for users, scientists, equipment suppliers and all who are interested to discuss the present and future possibilities for industrial applications of the following topics:

  • X-ray detectors and sources
  • CT, multi-angle radiography
  • Dual and multi-energies
  • Image processing algorithms
  • Laminography & Tomosynthesis
  • Other radiation techniques (neutron)
  • Quantitative imaging
  • Modelling
  • Multi-techniques fusion
  • Defect detection & localisation
  • Scattering
  • Standardisation
  • Feature extraction
  • Film replacement
  • Qualification & system reliability
  • Dimensional control
  • Phase contrast
  • Photon counting
  • INTERACQT
