Learn About ACerS
More than 9,500 scientists, engineers, researchers, manufacturers, plant personnel, educators, students, marketing and sales professionals from more than 70 countries make up the members of The American Ceramic Society.
Every day, materials professionals use ceramics to pioneer energy solutions, advance medicine, improve the environment, support manufacturing innovations, and make life better.
Often hidden, ceramic components are critical in nearly everything that makes modern life possible – from computers, cell phones, jet engines and armor, to skis, tennis rackets and hip replacements.
ACerS supports these innovations by pursuing our mission “to advance the study, understanding, and use of ceramics and related materials, for the benefit of our members and society.“
At the heart of this organization is a dynamic and diverse community. Nearly 30 percent of ACerS members hail from outside North America. Members work at global corporations such as Corning, Kyocera and Toyota, small businesses, universities, and government agencies.
The Society provides members and subscribers access to an extensive array of periodicals and books, meetings and expositions, and online technical information. In addition, ACerS Journals are three of the most cited ceramic publications in the world.
Since 1898, ACerS has been the hub of the global ceramics community and one of the most trusted sources of ceramic materials & applications knowledge. If ceramic material and technologies are a significant part of your work, then ACerS is the professional society for you.
The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) values and seeks diverse and inclusive participation within the field of ceramic science and engineering. ACerS strives to promote involvement and access to leadership opportunity regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, appearance, geographic location, career path or academic level.
