Other topics, not listed above but of interest to the ceramic sector could be accepted.

Each registered author can present or confirm the presentation of up to two papers.
The abstracts should contain, in a concise manner, the main aspects of the full paper. That is, identification of the problem, specific objectives of the paper, methodology, main results and conclusions.
The contents of the abstract will be evaluated by the Organizing Committee with the following objectives:
  • Accept or not the paper;
  • Classify the paper based on area of interest;
  • Define the form of presentation, oral or poster;
Regarding the criteria for acceptance, minimal requirements are:
  • The title and the content should be sufficiently clear to enable identification of the topic (pay attention to grammatical and spelling errors that prevent the text from being understood)
  • The paper should be within the scope of the Congress. That is, the paper should have some direct link with ceramics or glasses and it should be related to problem solving. In some form the paper should contribute to advancing knowledge base of the area (Avoid reporting cases that can be considered to be routine or is common knowledge to those working in the area of ceramics)
Papers accepted, based on the abstract, can be presented at the Congress even if the complete paper is not submitted.
Only full papers can contest awards (See rules for awards);


Only abstracts submitted using the on line form will be considered. In case you wish to add one or more authors who have not pre-registered, this can be done later using the Congress web site page Alteration of paper details, available on the presenting author’s panel.


Step by step, from registration to presentation

First: At least one of the authors of a paper should pre-register by filling the Author pre-registration form. To submit another abstract, the pre-registered author does not have to do it again.

Second: After pre-registration, the author(s) can submit the abstract by filling the Abstract Submission Form, for oral or poster presentation. The author should inform his (her) preference for the type of presentation at the time of electronic submission of the abstract.

Third: After evaluation of the abstract, the Organizing Committee will inform the presenting author, by e-mail, about acceptance or not, of the paper.

Fourth: Once the abstract is accepted, the presenting author should send the full paper as per instructions given in Indicated format.

Fifth: The presenting author should confirm presentation of the paper.

Sixth: The paper can be presented and included in the Proceedings only if at least one of the authors of the paper has paid in advance the registration fees. The total time for oral presentations is 20 minutes (15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for discussions). In the case of poster papers, the presenting author should be present next to the poster for an hour on the date and place to be informed later.
