The Center for Self-Assembled Chemical Structures is pleased to host the 43rd annual North American Thermal Analysis Society (NATAS) conference in Montreal at McGill University, from August 10th to 13th, 2015.

We are very excited about the symposium which covers a broad range of thermal analysis, rheology and materials characterization. Over 200 presentations and posters by renowned scientists, practitioners, 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 materials research.

The program of the 43rd Annual NATAS Conference and practical information can be found on the conference website.

We look forward to seeing you next summer in Montreal.
