Aldo R. Boccaccini is Professor and Head of the Institute of Biomaterials at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. He is also visiting Professor at Imperial College London, UK. He holds a nuclear engineering degree from Instituto Balseiro (Argentina), Dr-Ing. (PhD) from RWTH Aachen University (Germany) and Habilitation from Technical University of Ilmenau (Germany). Prior to his current position, he spent 10 years at Imperial College London, Department of Materials, as Lecturer, Reader and Professor of Materials Science. He has held post-doctoral positions at University of Birmingham (UK) and University of California, San Diego (USA). He was the Head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in Erlangen (2017-2019). The research activities of Prof. Boccaccini are in the field of ceramics, glasses and composites for biomedical, functional and/or structural applications. He is the author or co-author of more than 900 scientific papers and 25 book chapters. His work has been cited more than 48,000 times (h = 98, Scopus, “Highly cited researcher” 2014 and 2018). He is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal “Materials Letters” (Elsevier) and serves in the editorial board of more than 10 international journals. Boccaccini has been a visiting professor at different universities around the world. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) (UK), the American Ceramic Society, the Society of Glass Technology (UK) and the European Ceramic Society. His achievements have been recognized with several awards including the Materials Prize of the German Materials Society (DGM) in 2015, the Turner Award of International Commission on Glass (2016) and Friedberg Lecture Award (2016) of American Ceramic Society. Boccaccini is also an elected member of the World Academy of Ceramics and of the National Academy of Engineering and Applied Sciences of Germany (acatech) and advisor to the Science and Technology Ministry of Argentina. Boccaccini serves in the Executive Committee of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS) representing the German Materials Society and he has been a member of the Council of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB) since 2015, currently serving as vice-president. He has served in several review panels of the European Research Council (ERC) and of the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Anne Leriche is Full Professor at the Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France (UPHF) and researcher at the Laboratory of Advanced Ceramic Materials and Processes (LMCPA) in Maubeuge (France).

She obtained a Master of Science in Chemistry with honors in 1981 and completed her PhD degree based on thesis work in engineering ceramics at Mons (Belgium) and at Leeds (UK) universities, with “summa cum laude” in 1986. She received the diploma “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” at UPHF in 1992. She has worked as a researcher at the University of Mons (B) and at the Belgian Ceramic Research Centre in Mons (B), as a research leader at Neoceram, a start-up company specialized in oxide ceramics and joined the UPHF in 1990. She led the laboratory from 1999 to 2016. She has supervised 21 PhD students, participated in several European projects, published 210 papers or proceedings and presented 38 invited lectures. She has served as the President of the French Ceramic Society, of the European Ceramic Society, of the JECS Trust and as Board Member of the Belgian Ceramic Society. She was elected member of the World Academy of Ceramics in 2011, Fellow of the European Ceramic Society in 2013 and she received ECerS Stuijts Award in 2017. She was instrumental to initiate closer and stronger engagement with the ACerS by initiating the ACerS-ECerS Student exchange program (2013) and supporting the attendance of European young researchers to the ACerS Winter Workshops. She received the first ACerS-ECerS Award in 2020.

Main of her research topics are linked to ceramic microstructural control during conventional as well as field-assisted or microwave sintering.  Today, she has particular interest in processing functionalized calcium phosphate bioceramics with tailored porosity and interlocking microstructure using different manufacturing methods.

After receiving his PhD in 1996 (Mechanical properties of biomedical grade zirconia), Jérôme Chevalier first became Ceramic Engineer in Saint-Gobain Group, on biomedical applications of ceramics. In 1997, he joined the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA-Lyon), in Villeurbanne, as assistant Professor, then full Professor in 2004. He is currently Director of the Carnot Institute Ingenierie@Lyon, which gathers 13 academic laboratories and 2 technical centers (more than 1300 researchers). His research activity is focused on ceramics, from their processing to their mechanical and functional properties. He is especially recognized for his work on the mechanical and fatigue behavior of ceramics, on zirconia-based ceramics and composites, and more generally on bio-ceramics. He has published more than 250 international papers with a review process, 10 review papers in journals and encyclopedia, 4 book chapters. He is co-author of 10 patents and his research has led to the commercialization of 6 medical products. More than 14.000 papers have cited his work according to Google Scholar (h factor equal to 55). Jérôme Chevalier has been member of the ‘Institut Universitaire de France’ from 2009 to 2014, and he is Senior Editor of the Journal of the European Ceramic Society. He was awarded in 2015 by the CNRS with the prestigious ‘Innovation Medal’ and by the French Society of Materials with the ‘Sainte Claire Deville’ medal in 2017. He is Fellow of the European Ceramic Society and Member of the Academy of Ceramics.

The headquarter is located within the complex of Centers that the CSIC has on the Campus of the Autonomous University of Madrid in Cantoblanco. The areas of Chamartín, Fuencarral, Tres Cantos, Nuevos Ministerios, Sol and Atocha are connected to the venue by Cercanías train through line C4 towards Alcobendas-San Sebastián de los Reyes and Colmenar Viejo, with a frequency of 5 min between trains, so we recommend booking hotels in these areas. The hotel offer in any of these areas is quite wide.
There is also bus 714 from the Plaza de Castilla interchange with a stop in Cantoblanco.
