The linear thermal expansion coefficient, ?, as a function of temperature is reported and discussed for Ge-In-Se glasses. The study covered glasses with 5 and 8 at.5 In and glasses across the GeSe2-In2Se3 tie line. Changes in slope of the ? vs. the average coordination number, Z, are seen at Z values of 2.40 and 2.67. The ?-temperature data of glasses with Z up to 2. 40 are different from those with Z values between 2.40 to 2.67. Changes in slope are seen at Z values of 2.40 and 2.67 in the softening temperature, Ts, vs. Z data. Peaks in Ts are seem at Z values corresponding to tie line composition of the families with In at 5 and 8 at.% which have Z values of 2.73 and 2.77, respectively. These results confirm the earlier conclusion that, in addition to features arising due to effects of topology, those due to local chemical ordering are also present.
