The workshop is a prominent scientific meeting focusingon cutting-edge research and technologies involving PDC materials. The primaryemphasis will be on PDC-based fibers and ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) forhigh-temperature applications. Attendees will have an opportunity to gainin-depth information on precursor synthesis; PDC processing including additivemanufacturing, polymer-to-ceramic conversion and multicomponent PDCs,characterization from preceramic polymers to ceramics, modeling and simulation.Other topics include composite materials recovery or recycleability, PDCs forenergy storage, and ultrahigh temperature materials for hypersonics.

Professor Rishi Raj turns 75 this year. To celebrate thismilestone, we are incorporating a symposium dedicated to Rishi's achievementswhile organizing our second annual NSF-PIRE project workshop. This symposiumwill cover varied topics related to Materials Science & Engineering. Thesymposium will be held toward the latter half of the workshop (July 18th and19th) and may also include short presentations by current/former students andcolleagues of professor Raj.

Superpave Field Laboratory Technician Certification Training is a 4-day course offered jointly by Kansas State University (K-State) and the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). This course is intended to certify engineers, technicians, and other personnel who will be involved in the construction of Superpave Hot-Mix Asphalt (HMA) pavements using Quality Control and Quality Assurance (QC/QA) specifications in the State of Kansas. Instruction will be provided by a selected group of instructors from KDOT, industry, and K-State. Successful completion of the course and certification (subjected to a combined passing score on two written tests and a laboratory proficiency test given at the end of the course) will be required for all KDOT and contractor personnel performing tests on these projects.
