This is the only global roadmap that identifies the technical and manufacturing challenges associated with the development and expansion of commercial markets for ceramics and glass. Featuring presentations by industry leaders at the 1st International Congress on Ceramics (ICC) held in 2006, it suggests positive, proactive ways to address these challenges.

The ICC Global Roadmap contains the following content:
1) Summary papers prepared by the invited speakers before the meeting
2) A detailed account of the presentation of each invited speaker written by an editor who attends the presentation
3) A summary account and future recommendations for the industry on each topic covered written by the board and the president of this meeting, Dr. Stephen Freiman (National Institutes of Standards and Technology)
4) The CDRom accompanying the book contains all of the above as well as pdfs of the presentations for non-invited speakers, including posters presented and discussed.
