Report from IUPAC-Sponsored Symposium

12th International Congress on Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 14-18 August 2000, Copenhagen, Denmark

> Back to Calendar

Symposium website

About 300 participants from 39 nations had the opportunity to attend 280 presentations (130 lectures and 150 posters) at this meeting. Lectures and posters were generally of a high standard. Organization and information distributed before and during the conference were excellent. In my brief talk at the opening of the Congess, I conveyed the traditional greetings from IUPAC, with good wishes for a successful conference. Although there was not time for any significant presentation of IUPAC programs and policies, I delivered a substantial mes sage from IUPAC’s Commission on Thermodynamics (I.2), with wishes for closer cooperation between Commission I.2 and the International Congress on Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (ICTAC), in particular regarding nomenclature and terminology. I also presented a letter on that subject, from Commission I.2 Chairman Prof. Ron D. Weir to outgoing ICTAC President Edward Charsley. The letter was later discussed at the ICTAC business meeting, and our proposal was received very favorably.
