The workshop will bring together international experts in the field of ceramic science and material modelling and representatives from research institutes and industry. The aims of the workshop are: (i) to set-up the state of the art of the constitutive modelling in ceramics, (ii) to assess the possibilities of improving efficiency and safety in industrial processes of refractories and (iii) to define the current challenges in the engineerization of the liquid steel technology as related to the use of ceramic components.

Venue and accommodation

The workshop will take place at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering of the University of Trento (via Mesiano, 77). The Department is located on a beautiful hill, 10 minutes far from Trento’s city center by taking bus N.5 at the train station or at bus stops located at walking distance from most of the hotels in Trento.
