2021 47th Annual NATAS Conference

Virtual Conference
August 3-6, 2021


The North American Thermal Analysis Society offers scientists and practitioners the opportunity to explore the frontiers of thermal analysis, rheology, and materials characterization by participating in the first ever virtual NATAS Conference in 2021, with a special incentive deal for the 2022 return-to-in-person NATAS Conference at the historic Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.

Presentations and posters by renowned scientists and graduate students set the stage for excellent discussions and an ideal environment to learn about state-of-the-art techniques and exciting new developments in thermal analysis and materials research. We expect to provide opportunities to connect with providers of instrumentation and software related to thermal analysis as we always have at the in-person conferences.

The professional Zoom platform will allow for plenary lectures followed by concurrent lecture sessions.  And the prestigious NATAS Short Course will be offered Thursday and Friday afternoons following the Conference lectures. Sign up for both!

The opportunities found through NATAS and the annuaNATAS Conference are unique, rewarding, and designed for every angle of involvement in thermal analysis.
