The goal of the workshop is to identify emerging research areas in the field of ceramics, inclusive of glasses, composites, and oxide and non-oxide ceramics. The workshop will involve 30 to 40 researchers representing a broad range institutions from the US and abroad. The workshop will identify the most exciting recent discoveries in the field and determine whether or not they represent important areas for future research investments and, if so, why. The most promising research areas will be prioritized. In addition to evaluating trends in research, strategies to sustain and promote leadership in the field of ceramics will be examined. The outcome of the workshop will be a report that will be peer-reviewed and published in the Journal of the American Ceramic Society as a feature article.
