The final abstract submission deadline is Friday, Feb. 11th. In excess of 1100 abstracts are expecting for the 31 symposia. Submit your abstract before the deadline to avoid disappointment. The Abstract Submission is the same for all who will be presenting at
PacRim9 and AFPG9. For those submitting Plenary, Keynote or invited
talks please indicate this at the top of your abstract. If you require
any assistance, please contact Materials Australia. The 9th International Meeting of the Pacific Rim Ceramic Societies conference will be held in Cairns, Queensland, Australia 10-14th July 2011. This conference also incorporates both AUSTCERAM 2011, the biennial meeting of the Australian Ceramic Society and AFPG-9 (The 9th Meeting on Advances in Fusion Processing of Glass). Although Queensland has recently been affected by historic floods as
well as a hurricane which hit south of Cairns last week, I’m pleased to
announce that the Cairns Conference Center didn’t suffer any damage and
is operating as usual. July 10-14th is in the dry season in Far North
Queensland, where it’s “Beautiful one day and Perfect the next”.
