Pac Rim 2017 | The American Ceramic Society

Pac Rim 2017



The Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology is a biennial conference held in collaboration with the ceramic societies of the Pacific Rim countries—The American Ceramic Society, The Ceramic Society of Japan, The Chinese Ceramic Society, The Korean Ceramic Society, and the Australian Ceramic Society.

PACRIM12 drew a record number of attendees—nearly 1,200—to give 1,400 presentations and 250 posters. With attendees coming from 44 countries, the international character of the conference could be heard everywhere. In fact, only about 40% of attendees hail from the United States—a testimony to the truly international nature of the field of materials science, and ceramic and glass science in particular.
