The increasing demand for energy requires the development of new technologies and materials of energy generation and efficient use of energy. Especially the experience of current global warming derives us to the research area of achieving sustainable society. Ceramic materials and composite materials are some of the materials that have been studied extensively for the generation of energy especially to achieve sustainable society. Another approach would be to make efficient use of energy, leading to the society that uses less energy.

This symposium focuses on ceramic materials and composite materials that have potential for obtaining any form of energy and on technologies that require less energy compared to conventional method, while maintaining sustainable society.
