Welcome to the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (ICTAC)
ICTAC is a Confederation of National or Regional Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry Societies. The aim of
ICTAC is to promote international understanding and cooperation in thermal analysis and calorimetry
through the organization of international congresses and the work of its scientific committees.
ICTAC originated as ICTA, the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis, which was formed at the
First International Conference on Thermal Analysis, held in Aberdeen, Scotland, in September 1965. In
1992, the name was changed to International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry to reflect
the close relationship between thermal analysis and calorimetry.
The Confederation has 24 Affiliated National or Regional Societies with a combined membership of over
5000. In addition there are some 500 individual members of ICTAC. Membership is open to everyone
regardless of scientific discipline.
