A globally respected and traditional event is the International Colloquium on Refractories in Aachen, which was held for the 57th time in the imperial city of Aachen. The Conference held on 24 and 25 September was able to welcome 540 participants and 100 guests from 23 countries. In 12 symposia, 65 scientific papers were presented to outline the latest developments to the professional audience. In the scope of the Colloquium, in addition, as usual since 2009, the world’s best dissertation on refractories was presented and a prize for this awarded. A jury of eight recognized jurors choose the most interesting and forward-pointing dissertations. In 2014 the first award-winner came from France, the runners- up from Germany and Iran. During the conference, at the Eurogress Conference Centre, the industrial exhibition ran with trade fair stands representing companies in the raw materials sector and suppliers, the refractories producers and university and research institutes. A total of 32 trade fair stands provided numerous opportunities to find out about new products and services and to discuss economic trends.
