"Virtual Intercontinental Assembly on Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis" (VIACTA2022
) aims to bring academic and industrial researchers working on calorimetry and thermal analysis together to exchange their ideas and experiences.
“The 9th international and 11th Japan - China Joint Symposium on Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis” (CATS-2022
) is held by on-line as a part of VIACTA2022. The CATS was held in 1986 in Hangzhou (China) as the joint conference of the Japan society of calorimetry and thermal analysis (JSCTA) and the Thermodynamics and Thermal Analysis Committee of Chinese Chemical Society. The series conferences are alternately hosted every three-five years (Osaka (1990), Xian (1994), Tsukuba (1999), Lanzhou (2002), Fukuoka (2005), Dalian (2008), Tokyo (2011), Hangzhou (2014), Fukuoka (2017)). From the third time, it was changed to an international conference, and the name "International" was used. Due to the serious outbreak of COVID-19, the CATS-2022 is held irregular style than usual, but we will return to normal style possibly after 2023.
