Scope A wide range of metal-oxides exhibit intriguing properties and multiple functionalities. These materials have become the subject of many experimental and theoretical studies. They have also found broad applications in different fields. At the same time, the sensitive nature of physical properties of metal-oxides to the microstructure and interfaces has created challenges and opportunities to materials and physics research communities. Synergistic research efforts of material processing, characterization, and theoretical modeling of microstructures and properties will yield fundamental knowledge of metal-oxide materials. A whole range of new device concepts can be envisaged through the integration of these materials with other technologically important materials. This symposium will provide a forum for discussion of the latest progress in research and development on multifunctional metal-oxides with an emphasis on the processing-structure-property relationships of composite and thin film metal-oxides.
