Recent progress in computational materials science has significantly enhanced the efficiency with which the understanding of fundamental phenomena, the improvement of materials performance, the optimization of processing, the discovery of new materials, and the design of structural components can be achieved. This symposium will focus on the high-throughput design, modeling, genome, informatics, and machine learning of ceramics and composites with different approaches in both computational research and experimental measurements across the length and time scales so as to further optimize their behavior and facilitate the design of new ceramics and composites with tailored properties. A broader perspective is desired including the interest related to ceramic genome, virtual materials design, informatics and machine learning for new innovative materials and thermo-structure, integrated materials computational engineering, prediction of the structure and properties of crystals, glasses and defects, modeling materials behavior under extreme/harsh environments, application of novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance, simulation of novel ceramics for functional applications, and the modeling of surfaces, interfaces and grain boundaries at multiple scales.

The control of interface structures and resulting grain/crystal growth behavior is a key factor for fabricating polycrystals of optimum size and narrow size distribution in ceramic materials. In particular, in-depth understandings of thermodynamic stability and kinetic phenomena at grain boundaries and surfaces between crystals are essential to design the overall microstructure of polycrystals. Recent progress in characterization and computational materials science also enables the direct observation of atomic structures and facilitates the visualization of variation in electronic structures at interfaces. This symposium will focus on new phenomenological findings on grain/crystal growth, ceramic interfaces (including grain boundaries, domain boundaries, surfaces and heterojunctions), and microstructure evolution, covering the direct observations based on TEM and SPM, DFT calculations, and other simulation approaches.

Emerging phenomena in electroceramics have been of great interest for last a couple of decades. However, understanding of these emerging phenomena necessitate to directly ‘see’ their behaviors. In this symposium, we aim to explore emerging phenomena in electroceramics through the imaging of these phenomena.

Visualization of emerging phenomena using various imaging techniques
Understanding of emerging phenomena through atomic and nanoscale imaging based on the imaging techniques such as scanning probe microscopy and transmission electron
    microscopy
Functional probing for electrical, structural, chemical and electromechanical properties
