World Academy of CeramicsThe World Academy of Ceramics (WAC) was founded in 1987. It constitutes a centre for the International Community directed towards promoting progress in the field of ceramics and fostering a better understanding of the social impact and cultural interactions of ceramics science, technology, history and art. It is a voluntary, non-profit organization of collective and individual Supporting Members concerned with the welfare of the ceramics sector.

Professional Members of WAC (Academicians) are individuals who have made an international noteworthy contribution to the advancement of ceramics. The appointment as an Academician is merely honorary and rewards the personal merits in the field.

Professional Membership in WAC is limited in number. Rigorous evaluation procedures are aimed at guaranteeing top quality, clearness and democracy. Balanced geographical and specialty distribution of Academicians is also felt as an important issue.
