Attached you’ll find the announcement for the Call of Papers.

Since 1988, CIEC conferences have been organised periodically by researchers of several European Regions (Baden-Württenberg, Catalunya, Canton de Vaud , Hainaut, Rhône Alpes, Wales, Lombardia and Piemonte). This European Conference on Ceramics Materials will cover all the scientific aspects concerning ceramics as well as processing, structural characterization, properties and industrial applications of monolithic ceramics, ceramic composites, glass and ceramic coatings. This conference promotes particularly participation of young researchers and supports initiatives of networking and European projects. This conference is opened to all the European ceramic scientists.

Thanks to the JECS Trust ( and the support of our institutions, we are glad to offer very attractive registration conditions, especially for Young Researchers (100 € registration fee, all inclusive, student speech and poster contest)
