The Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology (PACRIM) is a biennial conference held in collaboration with the ceramic societies of the Pacific Rim countries: The American Ceramic Society (ACerS), Chinese Ceramic Society, Ceramic Society of Japan, Korean Ceramic Society, and the Australian Ceramic Society. ACerS hosted the first PACRIM conference in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1993. PACRIM conferences have since been held in Australia, Korea, Japan, China, Canada, and the U.S. They have earned a distinct reputation as a premier forum for presentations and discussions on state-of-the-art and emerging topics in ceramics and glass technologies.
