Fourth International Conference
Shaping of Advanced Ceramics


A special, peer-reviewed issue of the Journal of the European Ceramic Society will be published including a selection of some representative papers presented at the Conference. Papers dealing with updated reviews on different aspects of ceramic shaping processes will be focused. Papers published in this special issue will be the same as regular Journal articles and they will be submitted to the same peer-review process. There will not be a special "Proceedings" volume from Shaping-IV.

Considering the very narrow limits available for editing the contributions to the SHAPING-4 conference I invite you to present ONLY ONE TOP QUALITY paper for the special issue, probably selecting the most representative advances of your group in the subject of the congress

Authors should submit their papers via the JECS web site in which there will be an option to submit a paper to Shaping-4 BUT please wait a few days because this option is not yet set up on the website.

The deadline for submitting the full papers will be NOVEMBER 20th 2009.
