The award shall be presented in alternate years at the ACerS Annual Meeting event (held in conjunction with Materials Science & Technology Conference in North America) in even years and the European Ceramic Society Biennial Meeting in odd years. The award shall consist of an honorarium of $1500, registration for the event for one person, a certificate(s) and a piece of ceramic or glass artwork from the host society.
