Calorimetry and Thermal Effects in Catalysis (CTEC 2012)

CTEC 2012 | June 26 – 29, 2012    –    Lyon, France

logo-cnrsLyon, France — The international symposium ” />

Lyons, France —  The symposium’s goal is to review and discuss the various approaches to the characterization of catalysts and supports using calorimetry and thermal analysis techniques (DSC, DTA, TG…) alone or linked to other analytical instruments. The range of practical applications includes adsorbents and catalysts, nanoporous materials, sol gel materials, membranes, etc.

The symposium is intended for scientists and engineers from industry and academia who are involved in research and development of processes where catalysts or thermal analysis play a key role.

Invited lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions will cover the capabilities of such techniques, their practical problems and the latest advances in the practice of catalysts characterization. Continue reading

Hannover Fair 2012 Thermography Conference – CFP

Abstracts Due by 1 November 2011

flirlogoCroissy-Beaubourg, FRANCE — The Infrared Training Centre (ITC) in conjunction with FLIR Systems has announced a unique possibility for thermographers from around the world to submit a contribution for their next InfraR&D conference.

After the great success of the InfraR&D thermography conference over the last few years, ITC / FLIR is pleased to announce the next edition of its popular international event for thermographers working in Research & Development, Industry and Automation will be on April 25th and 26th 2012 at the Hannover Fair.

InfraR&D is a true user conference built upon the commitment of the presenters and the interest of the delegates.

This is a unique possibility for participants to submit their own contribution to the conference which focuses upon thermal imaging physics and covers applications in a wide variety of fields from veterinary surveys, optical gas imaging to advanced NDT solutions and all areas in between.

Participants to this English language conference are invited to submit a contribution of a long paper (duration c. 40 minutes), short paper (duration c. 20 minutes), poster, demonstration or a background paper which highlights trends and technologies with future importance for the field of thermography and IR measurements.
