Welcome to the Electroceramics XVII conference!

Electroceramics XVII goes virtual!

Enter the Virtual Electroceramics XVII conference here:



The biennial Electroceramics conference series was established in the late 1980s and represents one of the central international platforms for academic and industrial researchers to discuss and share the recent developments, discoveries, and emerging trends in the field of electroceramic materials and applications. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we had to cancel the physical conference in Darmstadt, Germany but nevertheless, we are very pleased to announce that the Electroceramics XVII conference will be organized on August 24-28 as the first all-virtual version of this biannual meeting in order to share our research and stay connected during these insecure times. 

It will be organized by the Materials Science Department of the Technische Universität Darmstadt in collaboration with the European Ceramic Society.

The conference will cover the recent advancements in piezoelectrics, ferroelectrics, thermoelectrics, multiferroics, varistors, ion&mixed ionic-electronic conductors, and caloric materials for energy storage and conversion, actuators, sensors, transducers, communication, and other related applications.
