Scope Thermal protection materials protect vehicles from the high temperatures experienced during entry into a planetary atmosphere, hypersonic flight, or exposure to extreme conditions during spaceflight. Entry and flight place specific and critical demands on the materials used to protect the spacecraft. The combination of properties required for efficient and reliable performance depend on vehicle design, shape, size, trajectory, and atmospheric composition among others. The design and use of such materials requires knowledge of the requirements placed upon materials and the approaches to achieve and measure those properties.

This symposium will focus on
- The development of new or improved thermal protection materials of all material classes, including ceramics, polymers, composites and metals
- Property measurement and characterization
- Testing of materials in relevant environments
- Materials response modeling
- Thermostructural analysis
- Computational materials approaches to design and behavior
- Characterization of flown materials.

Papers in all the above or related areas are appropriate.
