Scope The Sixth International Symposium on Nanocomposites: Nanoscience & Nanotechnology in Advanced Composites is being sponsored by the Composite Materials Committee of The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society [TMS] and being held in conjunction with the 2020 Annual Meeting of TMS that is scheduled to be held in San Diego, USA between February 23-29, 2020. This symposium, the SIXTH in a series, attempts to bring together engineers, scientists, scholars, researchers and even entrepreneurs to present and discuss their novel and innovative contributions in the domain specific to NANOCOMPOSITES, specifically on aspects both related and relevant to the following: (i) science at the level of nanoscale, (ii) processing: innovations and advances, (iii) characterization, quantification and analysis, (iv) mechanical property evaluation and rationalizations, quantification, (v) failure analysis, and far-reaching (v) technological applications at the level of nano-scale. We are looking for new or novel techniques and/or approaches that have been developed to help us promote the use of composite materials in a spectrum of both performance-critical and non-performance-critical applications at the level of nanoscale. The goal of this inter-disciplinary symposium is to bring together the range of developments in the domains spanning basic science, processing, analysis, characterization, mechanical property evaluation and failure analysis rationalization of the family of composite materials, as an attractive choice for selection and use in both existing and emerging applications. The family of composites span the entire spectrum of metals to include the intermetallic. The conference will certainly provide an attractive forum for presenting recent advances on aspects related to materials processing, fabrication, characterization, modeling, failure analysis and observations by way of interpretations by scientists, researchers and engineers working in industry, national research laboratories, and academia. Key-Note, Invited and Contributed talks will be included. The Key-Note and Invited papers from leading edge academic and industrial research settings will provide a lucid and comprehensive overview of the “current” status and potential future directions for both research and technology-relevant applications. Contributed papers will attempt to cover specific problems in the same areas. The topics of interest include the following:

● Nanoscale Metal-matrix composites
● Nanoscale Ceramic-matrix composites
● Nano-scale Intermetallic-based composites

Where possible contributions in the above topics should relate to applications, purely at the nanoscale level, in the areas spanning: (i) Aerospace, (ii) Automotive, (iii) Bio-medical and Healthcare, (iv) Electronic goods, and (v) Energy-relevant
