|The 37th International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites, held January 27-February 1, 2013 in Daytona Beach, Fla., turned out to be one of the largest and most global of the meetings in the series with more than 1,000 attendees from 45 countries. Conference program chair Sujanto Widjaja and Engineering Ceramics Division chair Sanjay Mathur reported that ICACC’13 had more than 900 papers and posters plus 55 exhibitors at the conference expo. As always, ICACC covered an impressive array of topics, from coatings to fuel cells to armor to multifunctional materials.
Energy, biomedical applications, and computational modeling themes also crisscrossed through the symposia. The Society’s student organization, the President’s Council of Student Advisors (PCSA), held its annual meeting and officer elections in conjunction with the conference. And, the annual Schott-sponsored shot glass drop contest— which for the first time required a special lift to reach the winning height—provided a recreational high point during the expo.
