4th Global Young Investigators Forum

Register for ICACC'15


The Global Young Investigators Forum (GYIF) aims to 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. Young researchers, including students, postdoctoral researchers, young professionals and faculty, below 35 years of age are invited to join this event. The GYIF symposium will help establish global cooperation and networking among young scientists and engineers to approach current and future challenges in ceramic science and technology as well as provide GYIF participants a unique forum at which to showcase their research. In addition to connecting with young researchers, all GYIF participants will be invited to attend a private luncheon hosted by the President of The American Ceramic Society. The American Ceramic Society will also provide complimentary student registration for a select number of eligible student GYIF presenters. The Global Young Investigator Award laureate will deliver the opening keynote lecture.


Proposed Session Topics

This interdisciplinary symposium will feature research from a variety of thematic areas, including, but not  limited to:

  • Frontiers in ceramic chemistry and physics: new precursors for functional ceramics, ceramics and catalysis, functional surfaces
  • Ceramic hybrid materials and composites for aerospace, armor, biological and medical applications
  • Advanced ceramics and coatings for structural, environmental and functional applications
  • Novel ceramic processing methods and synthesis routes
  • Nanocomposites and nanostructured materials
  • Computational materials prediction and design
  • Applications: ceramic sensors and actuators, energy generation and storage, photo-catalysis
  • Young researchers’ mobility and networks
