ALFRED, NY – S.K. Sundaram, Inamori Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, has been invited to give a presentation at an international conference sponsored by the Indian Ceramic Society.

The International Conference on Expanding Horizons of Technological Applications of Ceramics and Glasses (EH-TACAG’17) will be held Dec. 14-16 at the College of Engineering in Pune, India. Sundaram will give a talk titled “Ultrafast Materials Science and Engineering.”

The conference is being held as part of the 81st session of the Indian Ceramic Society (InCerS), in association with the All-India Pottery Manufacturers’ Association and the Indian Institute of Ceramics.

Sundaram was appointed an Inamori Professor at the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University in 2011. The endowed professorships were created in 2005, when the Kyocera Corporation, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of advanced ceramic materials, made a $10 million gift to the University’s endowment to support the School of Engineering. The gift honored Kazuo Inamori, founder and chairman of the board of Kyocera.
