This symposium will highlight recent progress in the processing science and manufacturing of advanced ceramics and composites. Covered are the conventional powder processing routes, and emerging unconventional or novel techniques capable of embodying ceramic materials with unique properties not possible or difficult to be achieved with traditional methods; approaches that may also conceive simplified and/or environmentally benign and energy saving “green” processing cycles. Interest is for dense and porous bulk materials, (nano)particle reinforced/functionalized composites, thick and thin films, laminated and graded structures, hybrid and hierarchical nanostructures. Rational improvements of the conventional methods of powder synthesis, processing and sintering; mechanisms and kinetics involved by novel fabrication techniques; new directions and challenges for the design at atomic/molecular scale of complex high performing, micro-, meso- and macro-structures with optimized properties for desired performance; developments in theory, simulations and testing will be focus areas of interest for this symposium.
