Welcome to the Ceramics Society
The Ceramics Society exists to provide a forum for the exchange of information, knowledge and state-of-the-art industrial practice on all aspects of ceramic activity within the UK. Its activities focus on all technical, education and training, academic and professional issues relating to any IOM3 member, including those who do not have a direct involvement with ceramics. Following a recent restructure, the Society functions via three independent committees; these are: Cementitious Materials, Ceramics Science and the International Clay Technology Association (ICTa). It also has close links with the Society of Glass Technology (SGT). As a result of ongoing structural change within the industry, the Whitewares, and Refractories and Technical Ceramics Committees had become inactive and have recently been disbanded. However we are very interested in hearing from anyone who would like to take the initiative in creating new activity in these or any other ceramic-related fields. Over time, the building materials sector, which is based around the heavy clays industry, has become more closely aligned with the activities of ICTa’s Education and Training Trust Operating Committee and no longer feels the need for a separate grouping under the Ceramics Society umbrella.
