Innovative Book on Processing and Properties of Advanced Ceramics and Composites

Research and Markets has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Processing and Properties of Advanced Ceramics and Composites II: Ceramic Transactions, Volume 220" to their offering.

Three international symposia Innovative Processing and Synthesis of Ceramics, Glasses and Composites, Ceramic Matrix Composites, and Microwave Processing of Ceramics were held during Materials Science & Technology 2009 Conference & Exhibition (MS&T09), Pittsburgh, PA, October 25-29, 2009. These symposia provided an international forum for scientists, engineers, and technologists to discuss and exchange state-of-the-art ideas, information, and technology on advanced methods and approaches for processing, synthesis and characterization of ceramics, glasses, and composites.

A total of 83 papers, including 20 invited talks, were presented in the form of oral and poster presentations. Authors from 19 countries (Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, U.K., and the United States) participated. The speakers represented universities, industries, and government research laboratories.
