All TMS 2020 Presentations from Thermo-Calc Software Available Now

This year’s TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition was attended by more than 4,000 engineers, scientists, academics and other professionals who shared the latest advances in the fields of minerals, metals and materials. Staff from our main office in Sweden, Switzerland and the USA were in attendance, giving seven presentations on the latest developments to our software and databases.
