Thermal analysis session at Goldschmidt 2011

We recently had a successful session on the application of thermal analysis and calorimetry in the biogeosciences at the Goldschmidt 2011 conference in Prague, Czech Republic. We were a small, but very active group with both oral and poster presentations. The group then convened for an additional session over a lovely dinner on the banks of the Vltana River.

New F-TAES notification system

We recently implemented a new notification system for F-TAES. Registered users will now receive an email whenever new content (e.g., news, forum post, etc.) is posted to the website.

Your notification settings can be managed from your user profile by clicking on the "Notifications" tab. From there, the easiest way to manage which notifications you receive is to select the "Content Type" sub-tab and check/uncheck boxes.

I hope you enjoy the new feature.
