The theme of the 2017 CeRAN conference has been carefully selected to reflect the versatile dimensions of ceramics, being not only an art or a craft but also a medium for driving diverse technological innovations. Against which backdrop, the conference seeks to provide a platform for in – depth discourse on the multifaceted potentials of ceramics to meet the yearning of a nation in dare need of independence from the myriads of its social – eco – cultural predicaments. Especially, given its endowment in natural resources and rich tradition, as a catalyst towards growing, developing and sustaining the nation economy and spring boarding it onto its pride of place among the committee of nations.

Significantly, the conference aims at celebrating professor Abass Magaji Ahuwan at 70, as he invariably doubles as a pioneer ceramist of high repute and an innovator whose creative ingenuity of the ‘Udu’ drums has gone beyond the shores of this great nation to American, China and other part of the world. Be assured that the 2017 edition of the CeRAN conference promises to provide a melting pot exciting intellectual discourses on the subjects of ceramic in terms of : material processing; production technical; aesthetic and entrepreneurship outlook of the craft amidst past, current and future challenges and or opportunities. Hence, the conference would be of immense benefit of professionals, amateurs, enthusiast and students of ceramics arts, design, science or technology alike. We are looking forward to seeing you in Zaria.
