Scope The key to the future development of increasingly complex materials systems in the solid state is a detailed understanding of interfaces. In particular, the significance of internal (grain and phase) boundaries as well as free surfaces becomes more dominant in technological applications where a reduction of system size or scale of microstructure is desired to optimize properties.

The scope of this symposium is to bring together researchers across a wide range of disciplines including theoretical, experimental, modeling and characterization in order to communicate recent developments pertaining to interface-dominated processes in solids and discuss the future of the field.

Topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to
* Thermodynamics and chemistry, i.e., segregation, adsorption, phase transformation, energies.
* Kinetics; morphological and re-construction processes, such as grain growth, coarsening, faceting, etc.
* Local interface structure (structure-property relationships)

This symposium seeks to understand, characterize and predict the above processes with the aid of the following tools
* Experimental assessment and observation of interface evolution in response to various external stimuli (thermal, stress, electrochemistry, etc.)
* Atomic-scale calculations of local interface structure and associated properties (energy, mobility, etc.)
* Mesoscale modeling and computational thermodynamics of processes driven by interfaces.
* Characterization techniques to probe interfacial properties (atomic structure, chemical composition, etc.) and their relation to material properties at the macroscale.
* Development of processing techniques to obtain and control experimental production of desired interfaces (grain boundary engineering, deformation twinning, etc.)
