The forthcoming Electroceramics for End-users VII conference is the next
scientific event in the series of conferences dedicated to advances in
electroactive, particularly piezoceramic, materials and devices. It will
be combined with a professional exhibition.
Following the tradition of these conferences of combining science,
networking between academia and industry and enjoying the beautiful
mountains, Piezo 2013 conference will take place in Les Arcs, French
Piezo 2013 will continue its well established traditions of presenting
the latest piezoelectric and multifunctional materials, technologies and
devices research and development and of bringing together the
international community within the field for discussion and networking.
There will be oral sessions, each with an invited keynote presentation.
The oral sessions will be accompanied by poster sessions, offering
additional opportunity for discussions with the authors and networking.
Tutorials, conducted by international experts are also planned. They
will provide unique insights for researchers and those interested in
broadening their skills.
Wanda W. Wolny
Honorary President of PIEZO 2013 conference
Piezo 2013 conference is dedicated to Prof. Marija KOSEC.
Marija Kosec, Piezo Institute Director, Senior Researcher at the Jozef Stefan Institute (Ljubljana, Slovenia), Head of its Electronic Ceramic Department and Professor of Materials Science at the University of Ljubljana passed away on December 23rd 2012.
Our scientific community has lost one its leading members and we have lost not only a researcher with whom several of us have been collaborating for very many years but also a friend. Maricka had an exceptional personality that was unanimously appreciated; working with her was always a great pleasure both because of her knowledge and vast experience and because of her kindness and wonderful sense of humour.
All our thoughts go to her co-workers at JSI and to her family.
