Successful 5th International Conference on Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD 2014)
The 5th International conference on EPD was held on 6-10 October 2014 in Schloss Hernstein, Austria. More than 85 participants, including senior researchers from academia and industry as well as students coming from more than 24 counties attended the conference, including 6 Keynote speakers, presenting their latest results and discussing the basics and fundamentals of EPD and its applications in a wide range of technology fields, including energy materials, nanomaterials, ceramic composites, biomaterials and functional coatings. The program of the conference can be seen here. This 5th edition of the EPD conferences series sponsored by Engineering Conferences International (LINK: http://www.engconf.org/ ) was endorsed by the American Ceramic Society, the Electrochemical Society and the European Ceramic Society. A student contest took place sponsored by the Journal of the European Ceramic Society Trust in which15 PhD students participated. The conference chairman was Prof. A. R. Boccaccini (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany), conference co-chairs were Prof. J. Dickerson (Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA), Prof. O. van der Biest (Kath. University of Leuven, Belgium) and Dr. T. Uchikoshi (National Institute for Materials Science, Japan) (in the photograph down).
Special issue on Electrophoretic Deposition of Ceramic Materials
The special issue on Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD) of Ceramic Materials in the journal Advances in Applied Ceramics (vol. 113, issue 1, Jan. 2014) co-edited by Prof. A. R. Boccaccini (Institute of Biomaterials, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany) and Dr. B. Ferrari (Institute of Ceramics and Glass, Madrid, Spain) has been just published. The introductory note to the special issue is available here. This special issue includes nine invited papers which reflect the wide application potential of EPD for shaping ceramic materials for several applications, such as structural components, ceramic membranes, ionic conductor layers, mesoporous structures and bioactive coatings.
Welcome to the new webpage of the International Network on Electrophoretic Deposition
This website is hosted by Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini at the Biomaterials Institute at the Univeristy of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.
The idea of this page is to provide a platform to the EPD Worldwide´s community to keep in contact and to facilitate the comunicaion between its members.
