WESTERVILLE, Ohio, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Ceramic Society
(ACerS), in conjunction with the ACerS Engineering Ceramics Division and
Nuclear and Environmental Technology Division, is hosting the 30th
International Conference and Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites in
Cocoa Beach, Florida, January 22-27, 2006.
This is the leading conference and exposition on advanced ceramics and
composites and includes exciting topical sessions on Nanotechnology, Fuel
Cells and Ceramic Armor. This conference boasts seven symposia topics
comprised of over 500 technical presentations and posters that provide
information on the latest advances, applications and successes in advanced
ceramics and composites. Key scientists, technologists, engineers and
entrepreneurs are expected to come together to discover and exchange current
information. Over 45 exhibitors showcasing materials, equipment and supplies
"Our 2006 meeting marks the 30th anniversary of this conference. This
program continues the tradition of previous Cocoa Beach meetings by addressing
core fundamentals and timely topics on the leading edge of ceramic science and
technology," said Edgar Lara-Curzio, 2006 Program Chairperson.
This conference and exposition is designed to be highly interactive and
promote information exchange among scientists, technologists, engineers,
entrepreneurs and exhibitors involved in advanced ceramics. An application-
oriented technical program has been developed which features presentations on
these symposia topics:
-- Synthesis of Processing of Nanostructured Materials - featuring the
results of current basic and applied research with emphasis on methods
and potential commercial applications.
-- Solid Oxide Fuel Cells - an international forum for discussing recent
technical progress on materials-related aspects of fuel cells and
emerging trends in electrochemical materials, electrodics, interface
engineering and long-term chemical interactions.
-- Ceramic Armor - continuing the search for novel materials concepts for
both vehicle and body armors and exploring the relationship between
computational modeling and property testing.
-- Ceramics in Nuclear and Alternative Energy Applications - new to the
conference technical program, sessions covering recent advances in
ceramics and ceramic matrix composites for use in fission and fusion
reactors, nuclear fuels and alternative energy applications.
