95. DKG-Jahrestagung / 95th DKG Annual Meeting

22.-25.11.2020, Forschungszentrum Jülich

Important informations:
As of  March 03, 2020

to be postponed to November 22 - 25, 2020


Dear members and friends of the DKG, dear colleagues,
Chers amis de la céramique, Beste vrienden van keramiek,

Thank you for your great interest in CERAMICS 2020, we have received approximately 200 abstracts of excellent quality from many academic fields and the ceramics industry from all over Europe and beyond.

Unfortunately, as the date gets closer, we are forced to acknowledge the current developments and travel restrictions in Europe related to the Coronavirus/Covid-19.

In agreement with the GTC of the CERAMICS 2020, we will postpone the CERAMICS 2020 to November 22-25, 2020.

We are very reluctant to this decision, but we think that due to the extended uncertainty of the situation it is best to act now than to wait, in order for many of you to have the possibility to adjust your planning.

The venue of CERAMICS 2020 (November 22-25, 2020) is the same: Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH. As program planning is already finalized, we think that it is fair to keep all accepted oral lectures / Poster competition / Hans-Walter-Hennicke Lecture Competition as planned. We therefore ask you to attend CERAMICS 2020 in November 22-25, 2020.
For those who have already paid the registration fees: Your previous registration is valid for the new dates (you do not need to do anything else).
If you wish to cancel your registration, please contact the DKG by e-mail via: congress@dkg.de

Kind regards
Programm Commitee



Greeting of the Programming Committee

Dear members and friends of the DKG, dear colleagues,
Chers amis de la céramique, Beste vrienden van keramiek,

I would like to cordially invite you to CERAMICS 2020, the 95th Annual Meeting of the Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (DKG / German Ceramic Society). This event, which is open to all ceramists and those interested in ceramics, will take place from 22 to 25 November 2020 at Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZ Jülich).

With almost 6,000 employees, FZ Jülich is one of the largest research institutions in Europe in the fields of energy, environment, bioeconomy as well as information technology and brain research. We lay the foundations for future key technologies and work to find viable solutions for complex and pressing societal issues through interdisciplinary research. Ceramic materials are of central importance in Jülich, as "hidden champions" for the energy transition technologies.

The international orientation of the research centre is evidenced by the annual visit of 1,000 guest scientists from all over the world. The DKG Annual Meeting is also becoming increasingly international, and in 2020 we will be paying special attention to activities in France. We look forward in advance to the intensive exchange and future cooperation with our colleagues from Germany's first economic- European partner country. As Jülich is located in the EUREGIO, we would also like to warmly  welcome our colleagues from the neighbouring countries Netherlands and Belgium.

All further information can be found on this website.

I look forward to welcoming you to Jülich!

See you soon & A bientôt
On behalf of the program committee

Chairman of the Programme Committee
Prof. Dr. Olivier Guillon
