The 8th International and the 10th Japan-China Joint Symposium on Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis (CATS 2017) will be held in Fukuoka from November 2-4, 2017. CATS 2017 is organized by The Japan Society of Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis and The Committee of Chemical Thermodynamics and Thermal Analysis of Chinese Chemical Society. This symposium has been held at four-year intervals since 1986. The Symposium will continue to follow the tradition of the pervious series meetings held in Hangzhou, China (1986), Osaka, Japan (1990), Xi'an,China (1994), Tsukuba, Japan (1999), Lanzhou, China (2002), Fukuoka, Japan (2005), Dalian, China (2008), Tokyo, Japan (2011), and Hangzhou, China(2014).

CATS 2017 will focus on recent developments in research concerning Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis throughout the world. Participants working in the other areas of thermodynamics are also welcome. Plenary lectures, keynote lectures, oral presentations and posters presentation will be done by various researchers from Japan and China as well as other countries throughout the world.

We cordially invite you to participate in this exciting venue for Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis at CATS 2017. We look forward to seeing you in Fukuoka, Japan, on November 2-4, 2017.
