CEEC-TAC5 & Medicta2019

Central and Eastern European Committee for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (CEEC-TAC), the Italian Association for Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis (AICAT) and the Interdivisional Group of Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis of the Italian Society of Chemistry (GICAT) invite you to participate at the joint 5th Central and Eastern European Conference on Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (CEEC-TAC5) and 14th Mediterranean Conference on Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis (Medicta2019) which will be held between 27th and 30th of August 2019 in Roma/Rome, Italy.

This joint conference between the CEEC-TAC and the Medicta communities offers an important opportunity to bring together eminent scientists of the Mediterranean basin and Central & Eastern European countries working in the field of thermal analysis and calorimetry. The conference aims at reporting on current relevant research developments in the Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry field and as such will serve a forum for discussions and may also offer a good opportunity to start new collaborations.

Sapienza University of Rome will host the 4-day meeting; the official language at CEEC-TAC5 & Medicta2019 is English. Sapienza University is an extraordinary place for students and teachers from around the world to meet, exchange and develop new ideas and philosophies.
