The First China International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics (CICC-1)
Considering that rapid development in the field of high-performance ceramics has been achieved in China since 1980s, in early 1997, the Chinese Ceramic Society decided to sponsor an international conference to offer a platform for the presentation, discussion and review of the latest advances in science and technology of high-performance ceramics around the world.
After about two years preparation, the First China International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics (CICC-1) was held in Friendship hotel, Beijing, from October 31 to November 2, 1998. 185 scholars from 19 countries and regions were attracted to the CICC-1 to give 221 presentations. The Conference was organized by State Key Laboratory of New Ceramics and Fine Processing (Tsinghua University).
After the Conference, the Proceedings of CICC-1 was published by Tsinghua University Press in 1999.
