G11: Smart Processing and Production Root Technology for Hybrid Materials


Research fields related to innovative manufacturing technologies such as “Smart Processing”, “IIoT”, “Industry 4.0” are expanding. Even in the field of ceramics, such advanced manufacturing is an important research topic. “Production Root Technologies” refers to a collection of six production technologies including casting, molding, forming, welding, heat treatment, and surface treatment. Production Root Technologies involve both materials and process technologies that are hidden behind products and do not frequently appear outward. However, they are very important fundamentally and greatly influence material performance. As the functions of products become more complex and robust, the importance of these Production Root Technologies is concurrently growing.


This symposium is designed to provide an opportunity for the world’s leading scientists and engineers from many fields to exchange ideas and to build new collaborations in the fields of “Smart Processing” and “Production Root Technologies”.


Proposed Session Topics:

  • Integration of ceramics manufacturing process and IT
  • Process monitoring and quality improvement
  • Starting materials: Mining, particles, bulk and functional materials and precursors
  • Sustainable energy concepts and applications; recycling and reuse processes
  • Development of ceramics and its hybrid materials with thermal conduction, electrical insulation, battery, optical properties, solar cell, heat resistance, environmental resistance and biological applidations
  • Forming and shaping processes for advanced a materials
  • New concepts and emerging technologies for enhanced product performance
