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.

This symposium is related to the current status on all types of oxide as well as non-oxide ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). CMCs represent a unique class of structural materials, showing their potential in different applications like thermal protection systems in spacecraft, high-performance brake systems and in the hot sections of gas turbines. Besides the progresses in research and commercialization, some challenges still remain in order to leave the current niche market applications. Novel cost-efficient processes for oxide as well as non-oxide CMCs, new fibers and fiber preforms, modeling and simulation tools are key subjects of this symposium. All kind of contributions to structure-property-relationships and experiences in the design of lifetime structures in particular under oxidative conditions are welcome. Also, all cost aspects in the manufacturing and the use of CMCs in industrial systems, including designing, machining, and testing (e.g. NDE) are of interest of this symposium.

This symposium will provide an open forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners from around the world to discuss the latest advances in coating technologies which can give totally new or markedly improved functions onto materials surface in terms of physical, mechanical, thermal, chemical, optical, electrical, electronic, and/or magnetic properties.  These functional coatings include thin film technologies such as PVD, CVD, and sol-gel methods, and thick film technologies such as thermal spray, suspension/solution precursor spray, cold spray, and aerosol deposition.  Special focus will be placed on advanced ceramic coatings and components for semiconductor manufacturing, aerospace, automotive and energy applications. Thermal and environmental barrier coatings for ceramic matrix composites, inter metallics and advanced superalloys to enhance the environmental stability and durability of aerospace and land-based gas turbines are also of interest. The goal of this symposium is to identify current key issues, effective approaches, and future outlook for functional coating technologies and applications through comprehensive discussion on these proposed topics.

Proposed Session Topics
• Innovative coating technologies for various industrial products (semiconductor manufacturing, automobiles, electronic devices, mechanical parts, etc.)
• Advanced coating related with PVD, CVD, sol-gel technologies, thermal spray, cold spray, aerosol deposition, and suspension/solution precursor spray.

Ultrahigh temperature ceramics (UHTCs) and nano-laminated ternary carbides and nitrides (MAX phases) are potential materials for use in extreme environments such as scramjet engine components, leading edges and thermal protection systems for hypersonic vehicles, and cladding materials in generation IV nuclear reactors. However, their thermal/chemical stability in extreme environments, the ability to be formed into complex shapes/sharp edges, thermal shock resistance, irradiation resistance, and damage tolerance are all critical challenges limiting near-term industrial applications of these materials. For such extreme environment applications, new advances in understanding of structure-property relationships and improving the performance by designing new composition/composites are needed. These will require development of new approaches for improving the thermal shock resistance, thermochemical stability, damage tolerance and machinability, as well as discovery of new materials to ensure an enormous leap forward in performance. This symposium will focus on design, processing, structure-property relationships, thermal and mechanical properties, oxidation resistance, machining and joining, and stability of UHTCs and MAX phases both from fundamental and application-oriented perspectives.

Proposed Symposium Topics
• New precursors for powders, coatings, and matrix or fibers of composites
• Structure-property relationships of existing systems
• New composition and composites design
• Novel processing methods (bulk, coatings and thin films)
• Novel characterization methods and lifetime assessment
• Methods for improving damage tolerance, oxidation and thermal shock resistance
• New methods for joining and machining of components
• Structural stability under extreme environments (irradiation, ultrahigh temperature)

The joining of advanced ceramics (and ceramic matrix composites, CMC) is a key enabling technology to innovative and sustainable manufacturing. Lightweight and high performance ceramic structures and CMC based components integrating a large number of functions can be obtained only by combining various elements into a multi‐material structure. Traditional methods used for fabricating multi-material components show limitations when large ceramic or CMC parts with complex shapes are to be joined. These limitations can be overcomed by novel fabrication processes and by new joining materials, together with suitable surface engineering. Such processes are enabling the fabrication and utilization of ceramic and CMC components for high temperature structural applications in energy, environment, transportation, and aerospace. Joining and integration of ceramics and CMC include: adhesives, brazing, glass sealing, diffusion bonding, transient liquid phase bonding, direct bonding and surface engineering prior to bonding. 
Additive layer manufacturing, 3D printing technologies applied to joining of ceramics and CMC, together with reliable methods to test joint strength of joined ceramics and CMC will also be part of this symposium.
