12th International Conference on Ceramic Processing Science



Advance Brochure | Final Program


Meeting Description  

ICCPS has evolved from a focus on particle-based processes to now including thin film processes, precursor approaches and all facets of the science underlying the basic themes of control and tailoring of ceramic-based materials with specific microstructure-property goals. This year’s plenary speakers include David Pine, New York University; Hiroaki Imai, Keio University, Japan; Christophe Martin, Grenoble INP, France; Ludwig Gauckler, ETH, Switzerland; and James J. Watkins, University of Massachusetts. Review the Final Program then build your conference schedule with the Itinerary Planner.


Who Should Attend  
Scientist, engineers and professionals interested in colloid and surface chemistry, powder synthesis, precursor-derived systems and sintering should plan to attend the August 4-7, 2013 meeting.


Technical Program  

ICCPS-12 features five plenary sessions, a poster session and concurrent sessions with invited and contributed presentations covering:

  • Particle shape control and assembly
  • Colloid dispersion and surface modification
  • Rheology of concentrated suspensions
  • Microfluidic techniques
  • Patterning, templates, and self assembly
  • Wet and dry shaping methods
  • Solution and precursor thin film processes
  • Biomimetic and bioinspired techniques
  • Computational tools applied to processing
  • Novel characterization and imaging tools
  • Densification
  • Mesoscale, microscale and hierarchical manufacturing and design of microstructure
  • Processes and processing designed to advance specific energy, electronic, optical and structural applications

Event History  

ICCPS-12 marks the 27th anniversary of the ceramic processing science series. Since 1986, the discipline has made significant progress in colloid and surface chemistry, powder synthesis, precursor-derived systems and sintering. However, much needs to be done to advance the scientific underpinnings of these processes, as well as the emergent areas of nanotechnology and its associated challenges, particle assembly, patterning, additive manufacturing, rapid sintering, and densification of complex shapes and multimaterial combinations.
