Engineering ceramics offer unique combinations of properties for structural and functional applications, such as components in aerospace, semiconductor processing, automotive, energy, environmental, and microelectronics. Globally, significant progress has been made in the material development and manufacturing technologies related to these materials. However, challenges are remained with regard to increasing the penetration of these materials into markets. The successful entry of engineering ceramics into the marketplace strongly depends on the consistent development of materials with improved properties and multiple functions, thus providing solutions for application conditions with special requirements. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a broader forum to scientists and engineers from around the world to present and discuss their recent advances and developments in the areas of processing, characterization, and applications of engineering ceramics.
