- Fundamentals from theory to practice: Surfaces, Particles, Grain boundaries, Microstructures and Properties.
Understanding basic science behind ceramic materials is a key factor for successful application and innovative use of ceramics. The symposium encourages submissions from all aspects of ceramic science from powder synthesis through processing and sintering to structure-property relationships. The key aspect is taking a fundamental and basic scientific approach to understanding a key phenomenon, be it: nucleation and growth, colloidal forces, sintering mechanisms, microstructural characteristics, grain boundary effects or different types of properties (mechanical, optical, electrical, magnetic or transport). Understanding basic mechanisms by use of analytical modelling and using computational tools is becoming more and relevant in the innovative use of ceramics and property prediction. Such fundamental approaches will take the ceramic community from a purely experimental based optimisation towards a more profound knowledge based design of ceramics and ceramic properties.

D - Bioceramics and health

Bioceramics are used worldwide in many clinical applications, including orthopaedics, dentistry, neurosurgery and craniofacial applications. There are two main classes of bioceramics: Bioinert Ceramics Bioactive Ceramics Bioinert ceramics were introduced in orthopaedics in the 70s, providing a dramatic reduction of wear debris in total hip replacement. In this respect, recently developed, mechanically-performing Silicon Nitride-based ceramics, are promising candidates for development of prosthetic devices with enhanced biomechanical features. Bioactive ceramics were introduced in the late 80s and are now routinely used as bone substitutes and as coatings to optimize implant fixation. More recently, biomimetics technology further improved the bonding ability of these materials. These biomaterials currently play a fundamental role in Regenerative Medicine, a multidisciplinary field aiming to restore, maintain or enhance tissues and organ functions. Indeed, bioceramics either as monolith or in combination with polymers (bio-hybrid-composites) play a fundamental role, pushing research activity towards biologically inspired processes like bio-mineralization, able to fabricate biomimetic materials with graded composition and morphology to restore multifunctional anatomical regions like osteo-chondral or periodontal tissues. This has recently been achieved using bioceramics and bioceramics-based composite as both acellular or cellularised tissue engineering constructs. In addition, the application of Nanotechnology to the field of bioceramics as conferred a new level of biocompetence to this class of biomaterials where tissue cells can be guided by the fine tuning of the surface nanotopography and to integrate smart carriers for the controlled delivery of bioactive molecules regulating tissue regeneration. An emerging topic in this scientific area is Nano-biomagnetism which has specifically been applied to some ceramic compounds or alternatively can be induced by chemical doping of bioactive materials, thus generating a new family of scaffolds able to be remotely controlled and activated by magnetic forces through completely biocompatible and biodegradable magnetic nano-carriers. Alongside Regenerative Medicine, such new materials have a potential to provide huge benefits to the wider field of theranostics.

Designing and engineering of ceramic composites

Properties of a ceramic component are a result of complex interactions of the constituents phases, grain boundary interfaces, internal architecture and structural defects. Both the control of microstructure and designing of the architecture over many length scales, ranging from the particle size to the macroscopic dimension of the component, contribute to the multi-functionality (structural, thermal, chemical) of the component. These composite ceramics are based on the structure organization at different size-scales by controlling the morphology and distribution of different building elements (particles, fibers, layers, interfaces...). The engineering of such materials usually requires processes (chemical vapor infiltration for ceramic matrix composites, tape casting for lamellar composites) specifically developed for them. This symposium will focus on the various aspects of the designing, engineering, as well as development of dedicated processes, in order for engineering and composite ceramics to address specific functions or association of functions. All application fields (energy generation, aerospace, automotive, health) are in the scope of the symposium.

Ceramics under severe environments and refractories

Refractories are nano-bonded composite materials used in large volumes to line furnaces for the production of other materials at high temperatures. Recent developments in Refractories included in this theme are: Synthesis of refractory materials from industrial wastes, New refractories e.g. hercynite/galaxite/CA6/MgAlON, Carbon- and chrome-free refractories, Nanostructured refractories, Low-carbon & ultra-low carbon-containing systems, Oxide-nonoxide composite refractories, In-situ refractories, In-situ and ex-situ reinforced refractories, Eco-friendly binder bonded refractories, Lightweight castables, Quick-drying castables, Self-healing refractories, Simulation/modelling of refractories, New refractories evaluation techniques including in situ and at temperature. Refractories are being developed to function in ever more severe conditions which begin to approach those of Ultra-high Temperature Ceramics (UHTCs) which are designed to operate at over 2000 and even 3000oC. UHTCs need to retain mechanical and chemical stability at these temperatures for a variety of high-temperature structural applications, including engines, hypersonic vehicles, plasma arc electrodes, advanced nuclear fuels, fusion first walls and divertors, cutting tools, furnace elements, and high temperature shielding. This theme will examine all aspects of UHTC behaviour including processing, environmental response and characterisation. Other topics include testing and property measurement at very high temperatures and modelling over length scales including phase equilibria.

I - Silicate and traditional ceramics Innovation in construction materials

Europe is a major producer of traditional ceramics and construction materials including tableware, sanitary ware, floor and wall tiles, bricks and roof tiles, cement, concrete, plaster. The cost of transport and need for these basic items should insure that this core industry remains stable despite effects resulting from competition in a global market or the latest economic recession. In order to maintain this essentially strong position, however the traditional ceramic and construction materials industry needs to continuously evolve and adapt to the challenges of an increasingly competitive and sustainable industry. Consequently, considerable attention is paid by the sector to research and development in all aspects: from design to decoration, from new products to new applications, to innovation in the materials and the manufacturing processes, and to input from progress in many other fields of advanced materials. Examples of major challenges include: increasing added value of materials by incorporating new functions or improving existing ones, reducing the energy cost in production, reduction of pollution in manufacture, use of renewable energies and recycling of waste materials. These sessions aim to review the state of the art of silicate and traditional ceramics as well as construction materials so as to highlight the latest developments. The general theme includes the following topics: New raw materials and additives, Floor and wall tiles, Whitewares (tableware, sanitaryware), Heavy clay products (bricks, roof tiles, pipes..), Cements and binding materials Contributions to emerging research lines are particularly welcome: Eco-designed products, Recycling of waste materials, Energy saving and use of renewable energies, Multifunctional coatings, Geopolymers.

J - Archeo-Materials
Since millennia pottery illustrates the cultural and technological levels of the society. Alexandre BroSngniart with his Trait des Arts Cramiques ou des poteries considres dans leur Histoire, leur Pratique et leur Thorie can be considered as the founder of the archaeometric approach that has developed more recently under the leading guidance of David Kingery and coworkers. The European Ceramic Society offers a forum to discuss the present state of the art in Cultural Heritage studies. The 2013 event, organized in association with the Muse Adrien Dubouch de Cramique, will continue this action and contributions focusing on the following topics will be welcomed: Archaeometric studies of pottery and glazed artefacts (focusing on non-destructive techniques, differentiation between genuine masterpieces and fakes, provenance studies, and other related topics). Research of ancient methods of ceramic production from clay mining to firing. Experimental archaeological practices in ceramic field and production of replica.
