On the 3-4 April this year, the TAC2012 will be hosted by the University of Nottingham on behalf of the Thermal Methods Group. The conference will be in the Department of Food Sciences building which was opened in 1997 at the rural Sutton Bonington Campus which offers an attractive and relaxing setting for the conference.
The TMG committee is now asking for paper/poster contributions. The committee wishes to encourage early career scientists (especially PhD students) to contribute. With this in mind, there will be a Cyril Keattch early career scientist competition. There is also a theory based thermal analysis training session covering basic principles of DSC, DTA, and TGA on Monday 2nd April.
The TMG is affiliated to the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (ICTAC) and collaborates closely with the European thermal analysis groups. The main objective of the group is to promote awareness of all thermo analytical, calorimetric and related thermal techniques by a range of activities, including a regular programme of scientific meetings and publications.

Linkam will be attending this event. Hope to see you there!
