Meeting Description

The 2019 Conference on Electronic Materials and Applications is an international conference focused on fundamental properties and processing of ceramic and electroceramic materials and their applications in electronic, electro/mechanical, magnetic, dielectric, and optical components, devices, and systems. Jointly programmed by the Electronics Division and Basic Science Division of The American Ceramic Society, EMA 2019 will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at Sea World® January 23-25, 2019.

EMA 2019 includes several networking opportunities to facilitate collaborations for scientific and technical advances related to materials, components, devices, and systems. Special lunchtime sessions will be geared toward students and young professionals. The grand finale of the meeting will again be the popular “Failure: The Greatest Teacher” where established researchers discuss the great ideas that they’ve had that did not work out for one reason or another.

Who should attend

EMA 2019 is designed for researchers, engineers, technologists, and students interested in basic science, engineering, and applications of electroceramic materials. Speakers include an international mix of academic, industrial, and national laboratory participants exchanging information and ideas on the latest developments in theory, experimental investigation, and applications of electroceramic materials. Students are especially encouraged to participate in the meeting. Prizes will be awarded to students making the best oral and poster student presentations.

Technical program

The technical program includes plenary talks, invited lectures, contributed papers, poster presentations and open discussions. EMA 2019 features symposia focused on advanced characterization methods; processing, properties, and applications of advanced electronic materials; ferroic oxides; complex oxide films; mesoscale properties of electronic materials; complex oxide and chalcogenide semiconductors; superconducting and magnetic materials; structure-property relationships in relaxors; ion conductors; basic science and electronic applications in microstructure evolution; materials for 5G telecommunications; thermal transport; and material design.
