Allen Award.

The Alfred W. Allen Award of the American Ceramic Society was established to “honour the legacy of an educator, technical contributor and supporter of the Refractory Ceramics Division”. The award committee biennially selects the author(s) of the paper which reflects the highest level of technical quality in the refractory ceramics field.

Professor Jacques Poirier will receive the award in March 2019 at the Society’s Annual St. Louis Refractory Symposium.
