• SCIENTIFIC SYMPOSIA

    (Provisional list)
    Properties and performances of the ceramic materials largely depend on their design strategy including their synthesis pathways, their processing and shaping routes. Manufacturing processes carefully designed lead to reliable performance of massive structures or coatings, of porous or dense components even showing a large size and/or a complex shape.
    In many cases, the advanced processing and shaping techniques provide ceramic materials with unique properties that cannot be achieved using conventional routes, leading to novel potential applications of such materials.
    On the other hand, the understanding of fundamental phenomena, as well as the better nano-microstructural design and the processing optimisation to improve the material performances, can be achieved efficiently thanks to the innovative tools supplied by the computational materials science.
     
    The Symposium entitled ‘Innovative ceramic syntheses, processing and shaping’ is aimed at providing a forum for academic and industrial researchers, to present and discuss their recent scientific results on a wide variety of topics related to science and engineering issues associated with innovative ceramic syntheses, processing and shaping.
    A particular emphasis will be placed on the understanding and use of non-conventional and innovative processes to develop ceramic materials with new functionalities and/or structures, and on current progress and challenges, as well as future directions in sustainable technologies.

    In the last few decades, remarkable advances in the knowledge and control of sintering mechanisms, modelling of thermal processes, and development of different techniques, among others, Spark Plasma Sintering/Field-Assisted Sintering, Cold Sintering, Flash Sintering and Ultrafast Sintering, have extraordinarily improved the densification of a wide range of ceramic materials with controlled architectures, allowing the manufacturing of complex forms (near net shape) with tailored microstructures and properties. The main objective of this symposium is to take stock of these latest advances and to stimulate discussion of the technological levers still to be lifted for the development of novel ceramic materials with improved properties. The discussion will also aim to respond to the societal challenges that are looming before us, such as the reduction of manufacturing and energy costs whilst minimizing the environmental impact.

    Sustainability in environmental science means “the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance”. Overwhelming evidence of manmade climate change has led to a gradual paradigm shift in favour of sustainable materials, which are defined as products that protect our environment throughout their entire life cycle. Sustainable or not, ceramic materials are truly commendable when considering their negligible pollutive behaviour through their entire length of service and beyond. Another key indicator of sustainability is how well materials can be recycled and reused.  
    The objective of this symposium is to present the last research developments about the key environmental aspects in the field of ceramics : 
    • New deposits of raw materials 
    • Air emissions, particulate matter, soot and gaseous emissions
    • Process waste water containing mineral components and other inorganic materials)
    • Energy consumption, (drying and firing 800-2000°C)
    • CO2 emissions 
    • Unavoidable energy  
    • Predictive maintenance and predictive processes 
     

    Topics

    During the last few decades, the use of ceramic materials for healthcare has significantly increased, encompassing a large variety of applications. Indeed ceramics are no more restricted to applications relying on their mehcanical properties and chemical inertness (such as orthopaedic and dental applications). They are now also vital for applications necessitating biologically active  materials (such as theranostics,  tissue engineering or drug delivery systems).
    Such a variety of applications necessitates bioceramics of many compositions, forms and shapes, manufactured with a large range of advanced or conventional processes. 
    Thus this symposium will seek to bring together researchers from academia, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians, to provide a large view of bioceramics, composite and bioactive glasses used for healthcare.

    The rapid development of modern societies is based on the availability of new materials with specific features. Construction industry is a big CO2 emitter and consumes each year a huge amount of energy and resources. However, resources availability and global warming are everyday more and more pressing issues to face. Thus, construction materials now need new features, in addition to further improved current performances and durability. To this aim, this symposium focuses on new ceramics and inorganic materials, eventually produced with novel eco-friendly processes or from new raw materials deriving from by-products of other industrial processes. Innovative shaping techniques like 3D printing are also considered because they can help saving resources and thus increase the sustainability of construction materials.
    The appearance of new building materials doesn’t cancel current materials which performances, such as mechanical, physical and functional properties, as well as environmental impact and durability, can be further enhanced. Within the aim of sustainability, end of life scenario has also to be considered, thus recycling of all materials has to be investigated.
    On behalf of the Co-organizers, it is our great pleasure to invite all scientists, colleagues, young researchers, business delegates, students and anybody interested in innovative ceramics and inorganic construction materials to attend this symposium.

    The characterization of the microstructure and properties of ceramics is simply necessary to enable their development and optimization. It is the cornerstone to allow new discoveries. While classic characterization (mechanical testing, electron microscopies, x-ray or neutron diffraction) still covers a very important role, the requests made to such methods (e.g. expand their capabilities to high temperatures or high pressure, faster in situ or operando measurements etc.) have triggered the development of advanced characterization tools.
    Among those, one can count special microscopy techniques, combined methods (including in-situ and even online during production), 3D imaging techniques, time resolved measurements and characterization at large scale facilities (neutron and synchrotron radiation sources).
    All these allow nowadays pushing the investigations to fantastic spatial and temporal resolutions, under environmental conditions (temperature, pressure, load, reactive atmosphere  etc.) simply unreachable a few decades ago. 

    This symposium aims at sparking the discussion among the ceramic community on:
    • The needs of the community in terms of advanced characterization tools
    • The state-of-the-art of such tools and the gaps existing
    • The possible application of methods that are not commonly used in the community
    • The use of characterization for fundamental understanding materials development quality control modelling 

    Contributions on all the above-mentioned aspects are welcome to trigger vibrant discussions: what do we need to develop and push beyond the current envelope? How do we couple advanced characterization methods  with the build-up of new ceramic materials exhibiting enhanced or even new properties?  

    Trivially, advanced data processing and analysis methods are badly needed in conjunction with the enormous amount of data produced by modern techniques.
    A section of the symposium will be, therefore, dedicated to coupling between characterization and modelling automatic and combined data analysis machine learning methods data reduction techniques and applications

    We expect to pave the road to a joint effort across the fields of experimental characterization, computational tools and material synthesis. 
     

    Topics

    • X-ray and neutron scattering, diffraction and absorption methods under external constraints (stress, temperature, pressure etc.)

    • Light or X-ray based spectroscopy advanced methods (Raman, Infrared spectroscopy, EXAFS and XANES etc.) 
    • Spatial or temporal high resolution approaches 
    • Advanced methods for the characterization of electrical or magnetic properties of ceramics 
    • From the lab. to the industry. Advanced on-line methods for the characterization of ceramics during their elaboration processes

    Ceramics and glass have been part of the material culture of mankind since its early history. They are essential witnesses to the inventiveness, technical and artistic skills on the one hand, and to everyday life of societies on the other hand. The analysis of their material provides information about the origin and management of resources, the exchange and commercial networks, the movement of craftsmen and techniques, the processes of recycling, as well as about art and aesthetics, and the symbolic concepts of past and present civilizations. How can we investigate them most meaningfully, how to preserve them for the next generations?
    Contemporary ceramics are versatile. Diverse production techniques and design methods allow for the most diverse works. Spacious installations, objects inspired by traditions, nature or contemporary events, new glazes, combinations with other materials - the repertoire of contemporary ceramics is endless.
    The scope of this session is to illustrate various facets of research on these emblematic materials, whether archaeometric, historical or artistic, and whether they develop new analytical methodologies or paths of creativity.
