Welcome to The 11th International Conference of Pacific Rim Ceramic Societies(PacRim-11) in the beautiful Jeju Island in Korea from Aug. 30th to Sept. 4th, 2015. This conference is the eleventh in the series of international conferences that provides a global forum for presentations and information exchange on the latest emerging ceramic technologies. This conference series began in 1993, hosted by the American Ceramic Society in Hawaii. Since then, PacRim conferences have been held in various countries including Australia, Korea, Japan, China and Canada. Over the years, PacRim conferences have established a strong reputation for the state-of-the-art presentation and information exchange on the cutting edge ceramic technologies. They have facilitated global dialogue and discussion with leading global experts. We would like to invite all of you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to visit beautiful Jeju Island and actively participate in this conference. We hope to provide an excellent forum for interaction and developing friendships with participants from various countries from various continents, who are involved in research, development, engineering, manufacturing and application of ceramic materials.

Jeju Island is located off the south coast of Korea, world-class resort area with easy access. It has mild subtropical climate, visa-free entry for 180 countries, and designated as UNESCO World Nature Heritage. The conference place is International Convention Center Jeju(ICC jeju), equipped with modern facilities and commands a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. I am looking forward to seeing all of you in Jeju Island.
