2nd European Union-USA Engineering Ceramics Summit

Register for ICACC'15


This transatlantic EU-USA Ceramics Summit on “Innovative engineering for functional and value-added materials – towards green and sustainable solutions” will bring together a wide class of experts from academia, industries and research institutions to critically analyze the opportunities and bottlenecks related to research, development, engineering, manufacturing, and application of ceramic and novel functional materials. The first EU-US summit was held in 2012 during the Daytona Beach conference. During the last 50 years, a wide ranging ground breaking research, technology development, and commercialization in the field of engineering and functional ceramics took place on the European and American continents. These seminal contributions enabling design and engineering of ceramics for multifunctional properties, led to their wide scale applications in energy, aerospace, healthcare, communication, infrastructure, transportation, environmental, and other industries. These break-through ceramic technologies and systems led to significant improvements in living standards and quality of life for people from all over the world. This summit will particularly address the integration and application of recent technological advances essential to maintain the competitive edge by keeping the technologies green, sustainable and cost-effective. It will provide a forum for the information exchange on current status and emerging trends in innovative ceramic technologies and to identify strategic elements and new materials technology pathways for a sustainable future. The technical program will address:


Proposed Session Topics

  • Current trend and future directions for materials research and technology
  • Challenges and prospects for various ceramic technologies
  • Energy and environmental issues and role of ceramics
  • Critical resources and substitution materials
  • Ceramic education, training and knowledge management
  • Overview of major ceramics efforts in the region
  • New strategies and technologies for sustainable and self-sufficient solutions
  • Reducing environmental footprint
  • EU-USA collaborative efforts
  • Open Innovation and industrial R & D

The technical program of the summit will consist of invited and contributed presentations. We hope that this forum will serve as a global stage for the information exchange on the latest emerging ceramic technologies and facilitate open dialogue and discussion with leading experts.
