The Ceramic Society of Japan

The Ceramic Society of Japan (CerSJ) was founded in 1891, and for over 120 years it has participated in many activities to further the development of science and technology within the ceramics industry of Japan. CerSJ has also maintained strong cooperative relationships with various foreign societies, academies, and organizations.

The International Commission on Glass (ICG) has played a central role in leading the promotion, dissemination, and understanding of scientific and technological knowledge among individuals in the fields of science, industry, art, history, and education all over the world. CerSJ has had the honor of contributing to these ICG Congresses since 1953. CerSJ and its Glass Division are very proud of this partnership with ICG and are pleased to support its functions and missions.

Currently, CerSJ has more than 4,300 members including scientists, researchers, engineers, and students, and over 600 of these members participate in activities related to glass science and technology. Over 30 are members of the Council and Technical Committees. Based on the activity of these Technical Committees, CerSJ will maintain its close relationship with ICG through the involvement of its members from academia, business, and research institutes.

CerSJ participated in the organization of the International Congresses on Glass in 1974 and 2004 at Kyoto and provided its full support to these events. In addition, CerSJ organized the 5th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology (PacRim5) at Nagoya in 2003 and the 3rd International Congress on Ceramics (ICC3) at Osaka in 2010, and it will organize the 13th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology (PacRim13) in 2019. Furthermore, in addition to CerSJ’s own biannual meetings, its glass division holds a dedicated annual seminar with a specific focus on glass and photonics materials.

Glass Industry Conference of Japan

The Glass Industry Conference of Japan (GIC) was founded in 2000. The following five glass industry associations and one incorporated association belong to GIC: the Flat Glass Manufacturers Association of Japan, the Glass Fiber Association of Japan, the Electric Glass Industry Association of Japan, the Glass Manufacturers’ Association of Japan, the Japan Glass Bottle Association, and the New Glass Forum. Over 60 glass manufacturers and related companies belong to GIC as regular members. GIC actively develops and promotes solutions to social problems with the aim of not only promoting progress and development in the glass industry but also improving people’s lives through glass products.

Members of GIC belong to the Council and Technical Committees of ICG. In view of its mission, GIC has steadfastly contributed to ICG activities and is very proud of its achievements in promoting the ICG mission.

GIC has always maintained close contact with the Glass Division of CerSJ. The Annual Conference on Glass and Photonics Materials is co-organized by the Glass Division of CerSJ and GIC to promote industrial?academic?government cooperation and to share ideas and knowledge on the science and technology of glass.
