Scope Radiation can produce significant degradation in the properties of materials. An understanding of the microstructural changes occurring during irradiation is critical for the development of advanced materials as well as for modeling property changes. The scope of this symposium will focus on the microstructural changes occurring in solids during ion, electron, neutron, gamma ray or x-ray irradiation. This symposium, which is the 7th in a series of symposia held every two years since 2003, is intended to bring together researchers working on different materials systems and radiation induced phenomena so that similarities and differences in radiation effects can be compared and integrated. Materials of interest include all nuclear structural, fuel, and functional materials. Both experimental and theoretical studies are solicited with a particular emphasis on linking state-of-the-art modeling with experimental observation of materials microstructure and property evolution.

Specific topics where contributions are encouraged include:
- Radiation damage in fusion & fission reactor materials
- Radiation induced segregation, precipitation, amorphization and recrystallization
- Radiation induced helium bubble formation, swelling and creep
- Mechanisms of deformation and fracture in irradiated materials
- Radiation effects simulation and evaluation techniques
- Integrated phenomena in reactor materials
- Microstructural changes in metallic and ceramic fuels
- Advanced ODS, austenitic and ferritic-martensitic steels
- Refractory metals, carbon and ceramic materials
