The Armor Ceramics Symposium was held January 25-27, 2010 in Daytona Beach, FL as part of the 34th International Conference & Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites. The 8th edition of this symposium consisted of over 65 oral and poster presentations on topics such as Impact, Penetration and Material Modeling, Boron Carbide, Silicon Carbide, Dynamic Material Behavior, Transparent Materials and NDE Applications. The symposium continues to foster discussion and collaboration between academic, government and industry personnel from around the globe.
