International Conference on Sintering 2017 | The American Ceramic Society

International Conference on Sintering 2017


November 12-16, 2017  |  Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina  |  San Diego, Calif.

Meeting Description

Sintering 2017 is an international conference and world-wide forum on sintering science and technology. The conference will address the latest developments in sintering and microstructural evolution processes for the fabrication of powder-based materials in terms of fundamental understanding, technological issues, and industrial applications. Besides its traditional importance for the production of structural powder components, sintering technology is emerging as a leading and irreplaceable tool for a variety of modern applications. This conference will focus on the increasing ability to design complex and multi­functional materials with specific microstructures and properties.

This conference continues the famous cycle of conferences on Sintering and Related Phenomena organized in US in the middle of 20th century, and is eighth in a series that began in 1995. The previous seven conferences have been held in Pennsylvania State University, USA (1995, 1999, 2003); Grenoble, France (2005); La Jolla, USA (2008); Jeju, Korea (2011); and Dresden, Germany (2014).

Sintering 2017 received 231 conference attendees from 29 countries to provide global perspectives on sintering in more than 200 oral presentations and 45 posters.
