XVIII ECerS Conference : Abstract submission deadline extended to 20 February!

It is our great pleasure to inform you that the call for Abstract, ending initially on 31st January, for the next ECerS conference in Lyon 2-6 July 2023 has already been a great success with about 1000 abstracts submitted!

However, due to a strong demand from many of you, we are happy to announce an extended deadline for abstract submission until 20 February 2023: don’t miss this ultimate deadline ! You can submit your abstract here.

We remind you that this conference will host 13 main scientific symposia in line with the evolutions of our scientific field and current technological and societal challenges, plus 4 satellite symposia on specific domains:

  • Clinical Applications of Ceramics and Technologies in Dentistry
  • Funglass Symposium - Functional and Surface functionalized Glasses
  • Ceramics and glass in cultural heritage and art  
  • ACerS-ECerS joint symposium - Frontiers of Ceramic Technologies: Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Development

Discover the scientific program here.

Once again, we remind you that the next ECerS conference in Lyon will be associated to :

  • The now ‘traditional Summer School’ that will be organised prior to the conference (from 29 to 30 June), here focused on advanced microstructural characterization techniques (Electron Microscopy of all forms, X-Ray Tomography, image analysis). More detailed information coming soon.
  • The Career Fair that will take place during the ECerS 2023 conference, on Monday 3 July 2023 evening: this event is a great opportunity to bring together students, young professionals, industry experts, and research groups to network and discuss their interests and job/career opportunities – the Career Fair is sponsored by Saint-Gobain and is a first in an ECerS conference.

More about the career fair here.

A Technical Workshop on additive manufacturing, with demonstrations on-site by some companies and hands-on-training sessions in the Campus at a walking distance from the congress center. The workshop is co-organised with our Diamond sponsor 3D CERAM, with the participation of LITHOZ, CONCR3DE and Nano-e. More detailed information coming soon.

The ECerS Students Speech Contest where representatives of each Ceramic Society member of ECerS can compete with their pairs – the winner will present again his/her talk during the Award Ceremony.

The YCN Students Evening that will be organised on Tuesday 4 July in the evening where young ceramist researchers can meet new friends and extend their network.

Do not miss the Exhibition that will take place during the event. An already quite large number of sponsors and exhibitors have confirmed their support and presence!
