ECerS XVII conference postponed to 2022

January 29, 2021

The ECerS XVII 2021 conference – organised by the European Ceramic Society AISBL (ECerS), the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS), and DKG Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft e. V. – has now been postponed to 2022 due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The new dates and location for the 2022 event are yet to be confirmed.

Typically taking place every two years, the ECerS conference series focuses on research and product developments in a wide range of ceramic-related areas, and the technical programme provides an opportunity for scientists, researchers, engineers and industry leaders to present and exchange findings on recent advances in ceramic science and technology, including Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM) and Additive Manufacturing (AM).

The conference is expected to include Plenary lectures, the ECerS Awards Ceremony, the ECerS Fellowships Ceremony, the Student Speech Contest and an industrial exhibition.

It will be divided across nine symposia covering a variety of ceramic science and technology aspects, including: Innovative processing and synthesis, high-temperature processes and advanced sintering, modelling of ceramics, advanced structural ceramics, composites and refractories, ceramics and glasses for healthcare, ceramics for energy conversion and storage, functional ceramics, silicate ceramics, ceramics in cultural heritage & arts.
