40th International Conference and Expo on Advanced Ceramics and Composites





Meeting Description  

qr_code_icacc_2016_lgICACC16 showcases cutting-edge research and product developments in advanced ceramics, armor ceramics, solid oxide fuel cells, ceramic coatings, bioceramics, and more. The technical program consists of 14 symposia, six focused sessions, and the 5th Global Young Investigator Forum. 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.


A special 40th Jubilee Symposium will celebrate this anniversary and honor those who have contributed to its success. There are many exciting events taking place in honor of the 40th anniversary. Check out a brief history of ICACC and see the special events here.
