Winter Workshop 2017



Meeting Description 

ACerS Winter Workshop is designed for ceramic and glass students and young professionals from around the world. The workshop provides a combination of technical and professional development sessions, outstanding networking opportunities, and concludes with a tour of the Kennedy Space Center.



This year’s event took place Wednesday, January 18 through Sunday, January 22, 2017, at the DoubleTree by Hilton at SeaWorld Conference Hotel in Orlando, Florida. 


Winter Workshop participants were able to attend all events of Electronic Materials and Applications (EMA) 2017, an international conference focused on electroceramic materials and their applications in electronic, electromechanical, magnetic, dielectric and optical components, devices and systems. 


The Winter Workshop would not be possible without the support of The Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation, the ACerS President’s Council of Student Advisors (PCSA),  the Young Professionals Network (YPN), and the European Ceramic Society (ECerS).

Winter Workshop Programs


The morning session featured experts in the field; presentations included “The Ferroelectric Capacitor as a Circuit Component”, “What You Can Learn with X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy”, and “Investigating Ceramics with Impedance Spectroscopy”.



The afternoon session, Developing a Career in the Field of Ceramic and Glass Materials, was a professional development opportunity in which industry leaders shared their experiences and guidance in small group settings designed to foster understanding of the professional world and create a unique networking opportunity.
