3rd Pacific Rim Engineering Ceramics Summit



During the past fifty years, Pacific Rim countries have proudly contributed to ground breaking research, technology development, and commercialization in the field of engineered and functional ceramics. These important contributions led to the advancement and wide scale utilization of ceramics in energy, aerospace, healthcare, communication, infrastructure, transportation, environmental, as well as other industrial sectors. In turn, these ceramic technologies and systems led to significant improvements in living standards and quality of life for people across the world. 


The International Summit series started in 2011 with a focus on Pacific Rim countries. The second summit in 2012 focused on EU/US ceramic efforts, while in 2013 it was titled the Summit of Americas. The second round for both the Pacific Rim and EU/US summits were held in 2014 and 2015, respectively. In 2017, the  3rd Pacific Rim Engineering Ceramics Summit will bring together experts from academia, industry, and government research institutes/laboratories to discuss the current state of the art and various technical challenges in research and development, engineering, manufacturing, and application of ceramic materials. The goal of the summit is to provide a forum for global information exchange concerning the current status and emerging trends in various ceramic technologies in Pacific Rim countries.


Proposed Session Topics:

  • Current trends and future directions for research and technology
  • Challenges and opportunities for various ceramic technologies
  • Energy and environmental issues and role of ceramics
