NATAS Celebrates its 50th Anniversary

The North American Thermal Analysis Society is a long-standing organization that offers scientists and practitioners the opportunity to explore the frontiers of thermal analysis, rheology, and materials characterization. Membership ensures that you have contact information for all your NATAS colleagues throughout the year and that you get the best registration rates for the annual conference. 

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. Our vendors are a very special group that know just what you need.  You will be able to get personalized attention and connect with providers of instrumentation and software related to thermal analysis in every way imaginable.  And the NATAS Short Course is a professional star and an attraction you won’t want to miss.

See the 2024 conference page for more information.
