Symposium: Porous and Cellular Ceramics

Scope of the Symposium:
Porous and cellular ceramic materials and components are essential in many applications, including filters, absorbers, catalyst carriers, membranes, heat exchangers, heat storage, sensors and lightweight structural components. Highly porous components possessing various pore and cell architecture in the millimeter to the nanometer range can be obtained based on several processing technologies, including precursor pyrolysis, sacrificial templating, partial sintering, direct foaming, replica of porous structures, extrusion, fiber assemblage and Additive Manufacturing.
In this symposium, we will discuss recent advances in modeling, manufacturing, characterization and applications of cellular and porous ceramics.

Abstracts on the following subjects may be submitted:

  • Advancements in Processing of Porous Ceramics
  • Structure and Properties of Porous Ceramics
  • Modeling of Porous Structures and Properties
  • Characterization of Porous Structures
  • Micro-porous and Meso-porous Ceramics
  • Ceramic Membranes
  • Applications of Porous Ceramics
