Dear Colleagues, (All contributors of Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry)

We thank all for participating at the 1st Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry Conference and 6th V4 (Joint Czech-Hungarian-Polish-Slovakian) Thermoanalytical Conference, which was held in Budapest on June 6–9, 2017.

The friendly atmosphere has long been a strong value of the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (JTAC), and during almost five decades of publishing a global community formed around the Journal. With the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry Conference (JTACC) series, we wished to create an opportunity, where our editorial board, authors, reviewers, supporters and all contributors, as well as those who were interested in this wonderful field, could meet personally.

The tradition of thermal analysis is strong in Hungary, since the World’s very first commercial simultaneous TG/DTG/DTA instrument, i.e., the famous Derivatograph, was developed at the Technical University of Budapest in the early 1950s. Hungary thus can be designated as one of the cradles of modern thermal analysis. The huge success of Derivatograph with more than 4000 pieces sold, paved the way for the World’s first thermoanalytical journal (JTAC), established in 1969. Hungary was the host of both ICTAC (1974) and ESTAC (1998) events. In 2007–upon Hungarian initiative—the V4 (Joint Czech–Hungarian–Polish–Slovakian) Thermoanalytical Conference series was launched. Now we are happy that we could host again an international conference on thermal analysis by combining the 1st JTACC and the 6th V4 conferences in the year 2017.

When we—at the Journal—decided to initiate a new conference series, we did not even imagine that it would excite such a broad interest from all over the World. We had a very packed program with over 350 registered participants from 49 countries to present 5 plenary, 13 invited, 8 keynote, ca. 110 oral presentations and 180 poster contributions. Besides the well-known JTAC Best Reviewer Award, we established two new grants, i.e., the JTAC Scientific Excellence Award and the JTAC Young Scientist Award, which were handed over during the meeting to Dr. Katalin Mészáros-Szécsényi, Dr. Jean Rouquerol and Dr. Omid Mahian, respectively.

In this special issue, selected papers are collected, based on presentations at the 1st JTACC and the 6th V4 meeting.

  • Imre Miklós Szilágyi—Conference Chair (Editor-In-Chief at the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry)

  • Alfréd Kállay-Menyhárd—Conference Co-Chair (Deputy Editor-In-Chief at the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry)
