The proceedings of the 24th annual meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine (Bioceramics 24), held in Japan, comprise 133 peer-reviewed papers arranged into 13 chapters: I. Advanced Calcium Phosphate Ceramics; II. Porous Materials; III. Cements; IV. Coatings; V. in vivo Studies and Clinical Application; VI. Cell Studies and Cell-Material Interactions; VII. Composites; VIII. Drug Delivery Carriers; IX. Dental Materials; X. Metals; XI. Zirconia and Alumina Ceramics; XII. Nano-Materials; XIII. Sol-Gel Synthesis and Other Materials. They will be of great help in exploiting the merits of ceramics and in overcoming their weakness in applications involving polymers and metals.
