TAC 2020
6th to 8th April 2020
The Mission of the Thermal Methods Group

To promote awareness of all thermo analytical, calorimetric and related techniques by a wide range of activities, including regular scientific meetings, training workshops and publications. As a regular feature, the group organizes two key meetings per annum. These are typically held in April and November. The April thermal analysis conference (TAC) covers a broad range of topics. The second meeting generally revolves around a particular theme or subject area. 


We are sad to announce that Glynn Van-de-Velde, our valued committee member and Past-Chair of Thermal Methods Group, was a casualty of COVID-19 on 10th of April 2020. This cruel disease took him away from us far too soon.

In the current climate concerning health risks associated with the coronavirus outbreak TMG find it impossible to guarantee delivering a full programme for the short course and TAC 2020 at Leicester on April 6-8th and the committee have taken the regrettable decision to cancel this year’s meeting.


The TAC 2021 will be hosted by the University of Huddersfield on Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st March 2021. This will be preceded by a one-day short course on Monday 29th March 2021.”
