This ACerS/Education and Professional Development Council (EPDC) lecture honors the memory of Arthur L. Friedberg for his teaching, research and numerous contributions to the ceramic/glass engineering profession. In addition to his work at the University of Illinois, Dr. Friedberg was the Executive Director of The American Ceramic Society from 1979 to 1984. The lecture is intended to provide a tutorial that reviews and instructs in some area of ceramics/glass with a distinct engineering flavor. The lecture is presented at a level that is accessible to all ceramists.

The award for this prestigious lecture is a certificate commemorating the engineering and professional contributions made to the ceramics professions by Dr. Friedberg.

The Nominating Process: The annual lecturer is selected by committee. An individual or group may nominate one or more candidates who shall be members of ACerS for a minimum of three years at the time of nomination.
