The Brazilian ceramic Congress is the most important event in the ceramic area in Brazil and one of the biggest at the international level. This year’s event is the sixtieth in the series. The objective of this Congress is to promote interaction among the different segments involved with ceramics, and thereby contribute towards further development of Brazilian ceramics and its dissemination. It is noteworthy that this is the only event of the ceramic sector where people from Teaching and Research Institutions, Ceramic Companies in the various segments and Suppliers of Raw Materials, Equipment and Consumables get together at one place. The Ceramics area is wide, consisting of several segments and despite the peculiarities of each one, there are many common aspects such as raw materials, processes, human resources and others. In addition they complement one another in various applications. It is an important event for the scientific and technological community of the country where participants have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge, obtain varied information and discuss different topics that would benefit them professionally, their companies and/or Institutions and consequently, the whole ceramic sector.
