Sixth CASC Summer School on Ceramics, Imperial College London, UK 16-18 September 2015

This is an extremely well regarded course by the UK ceramic industry

The Summer School aims to offer information on current developments in manufacturing and properties of ceramics with content delivered through a mixture of tutorials, laboratory sessions and master classes given by experts in the field. The tutorials are aimed at introducing subjects to early career engineers or scientists from industry and academia who wish to enhance their background knowledge in ceramics, whereas the master classes are given by experts from industry and academia and will expose the attendees to the newest developments in the field. Building on the success of hands-on laboratories of the previous edition, the lab sessions will allow the attendees to apply some of the concepts they have been exposed to in tutorials or Master classes.

Topics to be covered in this year’s edition include powder compaction in practice and by simulation, advanced shaping through additive or subtractive manufacturing, statistical approaches to design and verification of components, ceramics for use in industrial sealing applications, and an outlook on future challenges and opportunities for the ceramic industry.

The registration fee of £400 will cover accommodation for two nights and meals during the three days of the course.
