Who Should Attend

EMA 2017 is designed for researchers, engineers, technologists, and students interested in basic science, engineering, and applications of electroceramic materials. Speakers include an international mix of university, industrial, and federal laboratory participants exchanging information and ideas on the latest developments in theory, experimental investigation and applications of electroceramic materials. Students are highly encouraged to participate in the meeting; prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster student presentations.


EMA 2017, jointly programmed by ACerS’ Electronics and Basic Science divisions, is The American Ceramic Society’s eighth annual meeting on advances and challenges in the field of electronic materials. Make your plans to attend EMA 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, in Orlando at Sea World®, Florida.



DSC_0364The technical program includes plenary talks, invited lectures, contributed papers and poster presentations, and open discussions, as well as networking opportunities to find collaborations, and facilitate scientific, and technical advances.
