The Seventh International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics (CICC-7)

Since 2011, the China International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics was renamed as "International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics" (also abbreviated as CICC).

From November 4 to 7, 2011, the Seventh International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics (CICC-7), was held at Xianglu Grand Hotel, Xiamen, This Conference was organized by State Key Laboratory of New Ceramics and Fine Processing (Tsinghua University), Xiamen Johnchina Fine Polishing Tech Co., Ltd. and College of Materials Science and Engineering, Xiamen University.

About 720 scholars and students, come from USA, UK, Japan, Korea, France, Germany, Sweden, Russia, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, Belgium, Turkey, Canada, Brazil, Iran, Slovenia, Slovak, India, Australia and China (including Taiwan), attended the Conference. 662 Presentations, including 8 plenary lectures, 67 invited talks, 214 regular oral presentations, were given at the Conference.

The Proceedings of CICC-7 was published as a special issue of Key Engineering Materials (Vols. 512-515), entitled "High-Performance Ceramics VII", in 2012 by TTP.
