From Lab to Fab

The 6th International Congress on Ceramics (ICC6) will be held from August 21–25, 2016 in Dresden, Germany.

This international conference continues the series of ICCs, which were hosted in Toronto (Canada, 2006), Verona (Italy, 2008), Osaka (Japan, 2010), Chicago (USA, 2012) and Beijing (China, 2014). It has been established as a global high-level platform for scientists, engineers, business leaders and ceramists to discuss the latest innovations and scientific achievements in the field of advanced ceramics. Ideas and visions of the future for both conventional and new processing technologies as well as applications are shared.

Themed “From Lab to Fab”, the ICC6 will especially focus on stimulating an international technology transfer from research to application in symposia with balanced contributions from academia and industry. It will also address equipment manufacturers. The congress will be accompanied by an industrial exhibition.  

On behalf of the International Ceramic Federation (ICF) the ICC6 is hosted by the Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (DKG / German Ceramic Society) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS.
