The developments of ceramics-used functional materials have supported technological innovation in mechanical and electronics industries as well as in medical sciences. The objective of this workshop is to present and discuss the status and prospect of ceramics research.
The 4th International Workshop on Advanced Ceramics (IWAC04) will be held in Nagoya, Japan, on December 10-12, 2010, organized by Nagoya Institute of Technology (NIT). The previous conference (IWAC03) was held in Limoges, France, under the auspices of the French Group of Ceramics and of the European Ceramics Society.
The workshop will cover all aspects of characterization, design and processing technologies, energy- and environment-related ceramics, information and communication technologies and biomedical applications. The workshop will be organized in invited and contributed oral presentations and poster sessions.The presentation of recent ceramics research activities especially by young researchers is strongly encouraged.
