The 81 st Annual session of 'Indian Ceramic Society' and International conference on “Expanding Horizons of Technological Applications of Ceramics and Glasses (EH-TACAG’17)” is organised in association with Indian Institute of Ceramics (IIC) and All India Pottery Manufacturers associations (AIPMA) at College of Engineering Pune (COEP). The conference is envisaged to provide a platform for fruitful interaction of the international ceramics community towards a better tomorrow. Achieving a synergistic interaction of students, faculty, scientists and industrialists for their mutual benefit is the primary aim. It will be achieved through every meticulously planned event such as plenary and invited talks, theme symposia, B2B interaction, exhibition and panel discussion. To add further value to it, a two day workshop on "Advances in Engineering Ceramics and Composites (ACC-17)" in association with Powder Metallurgy Association of India will precede the international conference.
