COVID-19 Update
Due to uncertainty surrounding the current global pandemic, meeting organizers, along with the meetings team at The American Ceramic Society, have decided to move the 45th International Conference & Exposition on Advanced Ceramics & Composites meeting to a fully virtual format for 2021, running sessions containing pre-recorded talks on February 8–12, 2021.

Except for award/plenary talks and virtual networking opportunities, all invited/oral/poster presentations are given on demand for the benefit of international participants.  This will be the first-ever Virtual ICACC organized by ACerS Engineering Ceramics Division, and we’d like for you to be a part of it.


Meeting Description

We are pleased to announce that the 45th International Conference & Exposition on Advanced Ceramics & Composites (ICACC) will be held now from Feb 8–12, 2021 as a virtual meeting.  This conference has a strong history of being the preeminent international meeting on advanced structural and functional ceramics, composites, and other emerging ceramic materials and technologies. On behalf of the American Ceramics Society, the Engineering Ceramics Division (ECD) has organized this esteemed event since 1977. Due to the high quality of technical presentations and unique networking opportunities, this event has achieved tremendous worldwide interest and has attracted active participation from ceramic researchers and developers from the global technical community thanks to the dedication and support of our membership.

This year the technical program will reflect the growth and success of ICACC by featuring 18 symposia, five focused sessions, one special focused session, and the 10th Global Young Investigator Forum (GYIF). (The planned honorary symposium has been postponed to 2022.) 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 technical program reflects critical areas of interest within ceramics and advanced composites, with a particular emphasis on current trends in research, development, engineering, and application of advanced ceramics.
