About ICS

Indian Ceramics Society(InCerS) was formed in 1928 under the leadership and support of Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, the main architect for establishing the Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi, and with the ardent efforts of a few dedicated leaders, namely, Sardar Krishen Singh (Inaugural Chairman), Mr T. W. Talwalkar (Inaugural Secretary), Mr Satyasundar Deb (First President), Dr N. N. Godbole (the then Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Banaras Hindu University), in the fields of ceramic industry and education.

The prime objective of InCerS is to promote the advancement of ceramic science, arts and technologies, by bringing into close contact those engaged in these pursuits, publishing scientific and technical books and journals, holding annual sessions, meetings, discussions, symposia and exhibitions on the subjects of interest. It helps in bringing all the ceramic fraternity, professionals as well as students under one umbrella rather than segregated Institutes.

Presently, InCerS has more than 2000 members including foreign members, comprise a wide variety of individuals and interest groups that include scientists, engineers, researchers, manufacturers, plant personnel, educators, students, marketing and sales professionals, and others in related materials disciplines. It has 14 local chapters spread across the country devoted to achieve the society’s set objectives to meet the growing demand of the day

The InCerS provides members and subscribers with access to periodicals and books, meetings and expositions, and technical information to unify the field of Ceramic industry

About ICRJ

The International Conference on Refractories, Jamshedpur (ICRJ) organised under the joint collaboration of Indian Ceramic Society, Jamshedpur Chapter and Tata Steel Ltd, is a Biennial international Conference focusing on Advanced Refractory R&D along with global cutting edge insights for its applications. Owning a 16 year legacy since 2008, the conference stands as a pulpit of Refractory technology collaboration through the ideologies of manufacturers , researchers and end users. The conference aims to address new innovations and tackle challenges across wide courses of refractory technology and application.

The 8th edition of ICRJ is aimed to gather and witness a wide platform to disseminate the learnings of metallurgy and refractory innovations. From latest developments in the field of research and tech, sustainability practices and carbon emissions , to technical debates and panel discussions, the forum is set to foster a collaborative atmosphere, facilitating knowledge exchange and shaping the future of refractory science and engineering along with its applications on a global scale.

Our 7th edition of ICRJ showed a huge focus primarily on the future trend of refractories focused on sustainability and the market vulnerability due to geopolitical fluctuations , sustainable methods and practices that were undertaken by global refractory manufactures and consumers, alongside global refractory innovations in the fields of research and engineering, to incorporate efficient yet sustainable processing in industries across the world.
