Vacuum Microbalance and Thermoanalytical Techniques
21–24 June 2009, Kazimierz Dolny, Poland

The 32nd International Conference on Vacuum Microbalance and Thermoanalytical Techniques (IVMTTC32) will cover all aspects of mass and force determination, in particular under vacuum or controlled atmosphere. The meeting, to take place 21–24 July 2009 in Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, includes theoretical and experimental work such as thermogravimetry, calorimetry, sorptometry and measurement of chemisorption, physisorption, surface reactions, magnetic properties, and surface tension. Reports on progress in instrumentation should deal with microbalance and related techniques including supplementary equipment and corresponding coupling techniques.

The scientific program will include plenary lectures (30 minutes) and contributed lectures (20 minutes) as well as poster presentations that deal with the following:

  • history and advances in microweighing
  • new techniques to measure mass and weight in vacuum and controlled environments
  • gravimetric measuement of highly porous materials; adsorbents, catalysts, polymers, advanced nanomaterials, nanotechnology
  • adsorption rates and equilibria
  • industrial applications of microbalance and microforce sensors including oscillators and load cells
  • the coupling techniques: to TGA, DSC, TMA, DTA, DTG, MS, IR
  • vacuum apparatus, microelectronics and related equipment

An exhibition of balances, thermoanalytical apparatus, and complementary techniques will take place during this conference.

The Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS), founded in 1944, is a public higher education institution with an enrollment of 34 000 students, including 800 doctoral students. UMCS is the largest university in eastern Poland. The town of Kazimierz lies on the right bank of the river Vistula on its way to the Baltic. rich history, picturesque medieval houses, wonderful architecture, and kind climate, Kazimierz is known not only in Poland but also abroad as a sought after tourist location.

The chairpersons of the conference are Piotr Staszczuk, Anna Deryło-Marczewska, and Dariusz Sternik of the Department of Physicochemistry of Solid Surfaces at MCSU.
