In this silver anniversary conference, we reflect on the visionary efforts of a small cadre of dedicated material scientists who fostered the need for a meeting such as Cocoa Beach. From its humble beginnings, this conference has grown in scope and stature to become the preeminent international technical meeting on advanced ceramics and composites. The Cocoa Beach Meeting is synonymous with leading edge research and development in these challenging technological areas. This year's meeting will continue the proud tradition of innovative R&D technical exchange with three directed symposia, a series of focused topical sessions, and an experimental workshop/open forum program.

Cocoa Beach is a completely open forum for idea exchange. Authors are encouraged to submit presentation abstracts for consideration on any relevant topic. Anyone with an interest in ceramic-based materials or composites is invited to participate including: scientists, engineers, production and sales personnel, educators, and students.

Authors are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate Point of Contact (POC) prior to submitting their abstract to help ensure proper placement within the program.

Additional information to assist you in making attendance arrangements will be mailed later this summer. Further information will be available in Ceramic Bulletin.
