International Conference on Electroceramics

The international conference on Electroceramics, held every two years, gathers materials scientists, physicists, chemists, and application engineers active in the field of functional ceramics, working on theory, experiments, synthesis, and applications of electroceramic materials. Strong emphasise is placed in the electrical, magnetic, electrochemical, and optical behaviour or phenomena of these functional or multifunctional materials. We will organise cross-cuttring sessions in the areas of theory, processes, and characterisation. ICE was initiated by Professor Harry L. Tuller (President of ICE) at MIT in 2003. In 2019 we shall have the ninth conference. The most recent conferences took place in Nagoya, Japan (2017), State College, US (2015) and Joao Pessoa, Brazil (2013). 

Theme 1: Ionics/Mixed Conductors: Defects, Transport, Electrochemical energy storage/conversion

  • Solid State Batteries
