Meeting Description

ICACC19 showcases cutting-edge research and product developments in advanced ceramics, armor ceramics, solid oxide fuel cells, ceramic coatings, bioceramics, and more. The technical program and Industry Expo provides an open forum for scientists, researchers, engineers, and industry leaders from around the world to present and exchange findings on recent advances in ceramic science and technology.

The Engineering Ceramics Division of the American Ceramic Society has organized this prestigious conference since 1977—with tremendous growth in interest and participation from ceramic communities globally.

Who should attend

ICACC19 is designed for materials scientists, engineers, researchers and manufacturers, delivering the opportunity to share knowledge and state-of-the-art advancements in materials technology.

Attendees also have access to the Exposition on Tuesday, January 29 and Wednesday, January 30. Plan to connect with representatives from these industry-leading organizations.

Technical program

The technical program consists of seventeen symposia, four focused sessions on emerging technologies, the 8th Global Young Investigator Forum, and a special focused session on Diversity, Entrepreneurship, and Commercialization. These technical sessions, consisting of both oral and poster presentations, will provide an open forum for scientists, researchers, and engineers from around the world to present and exchange findings on recent advances on various aspects related to ceramic science and technology.

The key event of this year’s conference is the international 40th Anniversary Richard M. Fulrath Award Symposium on “Frontiers of Ceramics for Sustainable Society.” The Richard M. Fulrath award was started in 1978 to promote technical and personal friendships between Japanese and American professional ceramic engineers/scientists and encourage understanding among diverse cultures surrounding the Pacific Rim.

Manuscript submission

All presenters are invited to submit manuscripts to the ICACC special topical sections of International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology (by 29-Mar-2019) or International Journal of Ceramic Engineering and Science (by 17-Feb-2019).
