ACT authors honored at ICACC

The inaugural class of Fast-Track authors, along with authors of highly cited and highly downloaded articles, were recognized at a celebratory breakfast in Daytona Beach at the 44th International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC20). Fast-Track is a special ACT program that rewards well-written and timely articles with a special review cycle to get them published even faster. All you need to do to participate in Fast-Track is submit your best manuscripts detailing your in-depth research on engineering or applied science of ceramics here.
