Lyon, where the Rhône and the Saône rivers meet, has always been a city of exchanges and industrial development, with major historic landmarks. ‘Lugdunum’ was founded in 43BC by the Romans and served as the capital of Gaul. World famous for its gastronomy, the city is surrounded by prestigious vineyards. The cinema was invented by the Lumière brothers in this City of Lights, Lyon is also the city of cutting edge industry and engineering, especially in the fields of chemistry and materials, bio-technology and medicine, mobility systems, with numerous schools and faculties created to answer technological and societal needs.

In addition to the traditional symposiums covering innovative processing, thermo-mechanical properties, modeling and ceramics for different high-tech applications, the conference will discuss the place of ceramics in sustainable development with advanced characterization techniques, silicate-based ceramics and materials for building applications. Lyon has been growing and evolving for 2,000 years: it is today a leading sustainable destination.
