An international workshop was held in Bologna in December 1988 in order to discuss indentation methods, their reliability and recent use in materials research. These proceedings contain most of the papers presented at the workshop. The following themes were discussed: - general principles and fundamentals of indentation techniques; - failure mechanisms of ceramic materials and glasses; - evaluation of indentation results to obtain the fracture toughness, elastic properties and other physical parameters of ceramics and glasses; - influence of material and test parameters affecting the results.
