The American Ceramic Society’s Engineering Ceramics Division and ACerS have been organizing this prestigious conference since 1977—with tremendous growth in interest and participation from ceramic communities globally.


Attendees also have access to the Exposition on Tuesday, January 27 and Wednesday, January 28. Plan to connect with representatives from these industry-leading organizations.


Young Professional Events  

Professional development for the next generation of materials scientists and engineers is critical. ICACC’15 plays host to several events designed to engage and nurture young professionals. 

  • 4th Global Young Investigators Forum bring together young researchers from around the world by facilitating scientific discussions to promote the exchange of ideas essential to identifying emerging global challenges at the forefront of ceramic science and engineering research. Programming takes place Monday, January 26 to Wednesday, January 28.
  • Frederico Rosei, INRS-EMT, will present Mentorship for young scientists: Developing scientific survival skills Thursday, January 29. The central theme is that succeeding in requires “soft professional skills” beyond those needed for scientific work. The lecture gives guidance and mentoring on the job market, funding in modern science, publishing, ethics, alternative careers and more.
