HONORARY SYMPOSIUM: Advancing frontiers of ceramics for sustainable societal development – International symposium in honor of Dr. Mrityunjay Singh

Global population growth and tremendous economic development has brought us to the crossroads of long-term sustainability and risk of irreversible changes in the ecosystem. Energy efficient and ecofriendly technologies and systems are essentially important for further growth and sustainable development of our society. Because of their unique properties and performances, ceramic materials and components are frequently used as key parts in cutting-edge products and systems that solve these issues in various fields including energies, environments, transportation, electronics, biotechnologies, manufacturing industries, etc. Keeping these aspects in view, the aim of this symposium is to address and discuss the latest issues, challenges, and opportunities in a variety of advanced materials and technologies that are critically needed for sustainable societal development.


This symposium honors Dr. Mrityunjay Singh, Ohio Aerospace Institute, USA, and past president of the American Ceramic Society (2015-16). It recognizes his long-term and outstanding contributions to science and technology of advanced ceramic materials and technologies, as well as his tireless efforts in mentoring students and young professionals, promoting and developing human network and collaborations among the materials  community worldwide.
