42nd International Conference and Expo on Advanced Ceramics and Composites


Meeting Description

ICACC18 showcases cutting-edge research and product developments in advanced ceramics, armor ceramics, solid oxide fuel cells, ceramic coatings, bioceramics, and more. The technical program and Industry Expo provides an open forum for scientists, researchers, engineers, and industry leaders from around the world to present and exchange findings on recent advances in ceramic science and technology.


The Engineering Ceramics Division of the American Ceramic Society has organized this prestigious conference since 1977—with tremendous growth in interest and participation from ceramic communities globally.  



Who Should Attend

ICACC18 is designed for materials scientists, engineers, researchers and manufacturers, delivering the opportunity to share knowledge and state-of-the-art advancements in materials technology.


Attendees also have access to the Exposition on Tuesday, January 23 and Wednesday, January 24. Plan to connect with representatives from these industry-leading organizations. 


Technical Program

The technical program consists of seventeen symposia, three focused sessions, honorary symposium, and 7th Global Young Investigator Forum. These technical sessions, consisting of both oral and poster presentations, will provide an open forum for scientists, researchers, and engineers from around the world to present and exchange findings on recent advances on various aspects related to ceramic science and technology.


The key event of the 42nd ICACC is an international symposium entitled “Advancing frontiers of ceramics for sustainable societal development.” This symposium honors Dr. Mrityunjay Singh for his long-term and innumerable outstanding contributions to the science and technology of advanced ceramic materials and technologies, his tireless efforts in mentoring students and young professionals, and for promoting and developing networks and collaborations among the materials community worldwide.



Mechanical Properties Short Course

If you are an engineer, scientist, student, technician, or manager interested in the mechanical properties of glasses and ceramics, testing procedures, and the meaning of testing results, then this short course is an excellent option for you.  Two preeminent leaders of the industry and ACerS Fellows, George D. Quinn, NIST, and Richard C. Bradt, University of Alabama, teach this two-day short course that will be held January 25-26 at the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort and Ocean Center.
