The October/November 2018 issue of ACerS Bulletin is now available online.

This month we look at how Israel is making a big name for itself in ceramic research, development, and commercialization. Authors Alex Talavera and Randy B. Hecht share examples on how this small country has big goals for progressing beyond startup status in the ceramics world—including developing domestic talent, increasing ceramic research and development for military and industrial applications, and focusing on nanotechnology as an economic growth driver.

Starting in 2019, ACerS will present the inaugural Navrotsky Award for Experimental Thermodynamics of Solids. Established by UC Davis professor and ACerS Fellow Alexandra Navrotsky, the biennial award recognizes an author who made the most innovative contribution to experimental thermodynamics of solids technical literature during the previous two years prior to selection. Author Eileen De Guire highlights Navrotsky’s professional work and career accomplishments which inspired this new award.

Also in the October/November issue, we put the spotlight on meetings, including a recap of MCARE 2018, plus everything you need to know about ACerS 120th Annual Meeting, MS&T18, and the 7th Ceramic Business and Leadership Summit. You’ll also want to check out the tentative schedule of events for ICACC19 and EMA 2019—two important January meetings that are quickly approaching!

The current issue is free to all for a short time, but remember that all the valuable content in over ninety years of past issues of the ACerS Bulletin is free only to members—so considering joining us today!
