These proceedings report the papers presented at the 11th European Inter-regional Conference on Ceramics (CIEC 11). This conference series provides a regular interface between researchers based in different regions of Europe, namely: Asturias, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Canton de Vaud, Catalunya, Hainaut, Liguria, Lombardia, Piemonte, Provence Alpes Cotes d'Azur, Rhône-Alpes, Valle d'Aosta, Wales. CIEC 11 was held at Hotel PREALPINA, Chexbres, 'Canton de Vaud', but organized by members of the Institute for Physics of Complex Matter (IPMC) of the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
