Alida Bellosi is director of the ISTEC Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics-CNR, Faenza, Italy. Her primary fields of research involve structural advanced ceramics: Bellosi oxide- and nonoxide-based monolithics; composite ceramics and ultrarefractory ceramics for engineering and biostructural applications. Coauthor of more than 300 papers and holder of three patents, Bellosi has presented about 50 invited or keynote talks at international conferences. She is a member of the Engineering Ceramics Division. Lennart Bergström is professor in materials chemistry at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry at Stockholm University, Sweden. His current Bergström research interests include assembly of polyhedral nanoparticles into wellordered arrays of novel symmetries, development of novel powder processing routes of hierarchically porous monoliths for gas separation applications, and multifunctional inorganic– nanocellulose hybrids. Bergström has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers, numerous book chapters, and has seven patents. Bergström belongs to the Basic Science Division and NICE. Christopher C. Berndt is professor of surface science and interface engineering, Swinburne University of Technology, Faculty of Engineering and Industrial Sciences, IRIS, Berndt Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia. Berndt’s professional interests gravitate around manufacturing, especially in the area of protective ceramic coatings. Berndt has more than 450 publications. He undertook several fellowships in the United States before returning to Australia in the mid-1980s. He then accepted a professorial appointment at University of New York-Stony Brook before returning again to Australia in early 2005. Susmita Bose is professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering and an affiliate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Washington State University.
