92nd DKG Annual Meeting in Conjunction with the Symposium on High-Performance Ceramics
The 92nd Annual Meeting of the German Ceramic Society (DKG), which was held from 19–22 March 2017 in conjunction with the Symposium on High-Performance Ceramics arranged by the Joint Committee of the DKG and the DGM (German Materials Society) at Berlin University of Technology, was attended by over
300 participants from Germany and another 15 countries – Belarus, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, USA, Denmark, Spain, Slovak Republic, Iraq, Japan, Liechtenstein and the Netherlands. This year, the German Ceramic Society presented the INTERNATIONAL DKG AWARD. With this award, the DKG wants to honour in a unique way private individuals and entities within the international ceramics community, who have served ceramics in practice, teaching or research. Accordingly, the INTERNATIONAL DKG AWARD is an honour that not only recognizes the many years of services of the award-winner, but also supports especially new ceramic ideas in a very public way.
