Scope The symposium focuses on the advancements of characterization of the minerals, metals, and materials and the

applications of characterization results on the processing of these materials. Subjects include, but not limited to,
extraction & processing of various types of minerals, process-structure-property relationship of metal alloys, glasses,
ceramics, polymers, composites, semiconductors and carbon using as functional and structural materials. Advanced
characterization methods, techniques, and new instruments are emphasized.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Novel methods and techniques for characterizing materials across a spectrum of systems and processes.
• Characterization of mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, dielectric, magnetic, physical, and other properties
of metals, polymers, ceramics including battery materials.
• Characterization of structural, morphological, and topographical natures of materials at micro- and nanoscales.
• Characterization of extraction and processing including process development and analysis.
• Advances in instrument developments for microstructure analysis and performance evaluation of materials,
such as computer tomography (CT), X-ray and neutron diffraction, electron microscopy (SEM, FIB, and TEM
etc.), spectroscopy (EDS, WDS, EBSD) techniques, etc.
• 2D and 3D modelling for materials characterization.
Symposium Dynamics: This symposium encourages, but does not require, accompanying proceedings papers for
each oral presentation. Awards will be presented for individuals who provide the best combination of oral presentation
