It is a great pleasure to announce that the Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE) of the UPC-BarcelonaTECH University will host the V Spanish- Portuguese Congress of Ceramics and the LVI Congreso Nacional de la SECV, as well as the Workshop on 2D and 3D printing of Ceramics. This will be an occasion to present the new campus located in the seafront of Barcelona, to researchers in the field of ceramic and glass of Spain and Portugal.

The Congress will consist on five plenary talks, together with 13 symposia on different topics relevant to the ceramic community. On Thursday 11th a workshop on advanced printing technologies for ceramics as well as an industrial session will be organized.

We believe that these events are a unique opportunity to foster relationships between academia and industry of the ceramic and glass sectors of both Spain and Portugal and to encourage the active participation of young researchers.

Looking forward to meeting you in Barcelona,

Conference Organizing Committee.
