Publication Newsletter

October 2019

Welcome to the Publication Newsletter

Each month, dozens of peer reviewed papers are published using Thermo-Calc Software products. These papers demonstrate the wide variety of applications and interesting work that is being done with our tools. The aim of this new quarterly newsletter is to share with our community a sampling of some of the interesting papers that have been published in the last three months. 

We hope that you will find this a useful resource for your own work. If you would like us to include a paper that you have recently published, please send us a link and we may include it next time. We can also consider slide decks from recent presentations, videos of talks, etc. Anything that may be of technical benefit to our broad user community.

Thermo-Calc Training
Thermo-Calc Software provide introductory training courses for Thermo-Calc, DICTRA and TC-PRISMA in both Stockholm, Sweden, and Pittsburgh, USA, multiple times per year.  
These courses provide a solid foundation for using the software tools, as well as "hands-on" experience filled with examples, insights and tips based on the years of practical experience of our instructors, which allow attendees to get up and running with the software much more quickly.
Some comments from attendees of our training courses include:
"Very good introductory course with lots of examples that make me confident in doing basic work and provided ideas for more advanced research."
"Very helpful overall. Would recommend to others."
"Overall this week of courses was well worth the time. I feel prepared to get busy with Thermo-Calc and DICTRA and TC-PRISMA. Thank you!"

*All training is conducted in English.
