Ceramic gas sensors have been used to detect toxic, explosive and harmful chemicals and their applications are rapidly expanding to the various fields such as medical diagnosis, environmental monitoring, and food freshness monitoring. Moreover, artificial olfaction will become more important with the progress of pattern recognition, sensor integration, sensor networks and Internet of Things. This symposium will provide a forum to present recent progresses in the design, understanding, development and applications of ceramic based gas sensors using oxide semiconductors, solid oxide electrolytes, carbon-based materials, and metal chalcogenides.

In recent decades, there has been an explosive growth of interest in both fundamental research and device applications based on 2D Materials, such as graphene, transition metal charcogenides, and black phosphours. Besides, more merging 2D materials such as borophene, silicone, antimonene, germanene as well as layered halide perovskites and selenides, tellurides of bismuth have been introduced. The symphosium will focus on synthesis/assembly, fascinating properties and applications of layered 2D atomically-thin materials and heterostructures.

• Synthesis of 2D materials
• Heterostructures from 2D materials
• Electronic/optical/magnetic/thermal properties of 2D materials
• Device applications of 2D materials

Recent electronic ceramic materials have brought importance of nanomaterials, ultra-thin, and multilayered thin films, as well as nanocomposites. In the field of advanced dielectric, semiconducting, ferroelectric, and piezoelectric materials, the unconventional processes, designs, syntheses, and characterizations become more and more significant, as well as conventional materials analyses. This symposium will provide multidisciplinary discussions for diverse ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials and its emerging multifunctional applications such as lead-based ceramics, lead-free ceramics, relaxors, nanocomposites, hybrid materials, traducers, sensors, actuators, energy storage, energy harvesting, property characterization, materials imaging, and so on. There are three main aims. We will find the discussions, (1) how the electronic and semiconducting ceramic materials show more unique and excellent properties, (2) why the new-type and hybrid nanomaterials is important in this field, and (3) how and why the dielectric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and semiconducting devices can be enhanced and improved for a variety of novel applications.
