Scope Biological, electronic, and functional thin films and coatings continue to be an innovative area in materials science & engineering. For example, novel thin films and coatings are being developed with unusual abrasive, adaptive, bioactive, self-healing, electronic, optical, and photonic properties.

The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum to identify critical problems, stimulate new ideas, provide promising solutions, assess possible roadmaps, as well as discuss fundamental and applied topics.

The specific areas of interest include but are not limited to:

- development of novel thin film and coating methods
- functional thin films and coatings for structural, biological, electrical, optical and other applications
- characterization of thin films and coatings
- non-destructive approaches for characterization of thin films and coatings
- novel approaches to prevent corrosion and wear
- thin films and coatings for aerospace, defense, energy and transportation applications
- novel methods for self-healing, self-assembly, and self-repair
- innovative biosensors and bioelectronics (joint session with the Biological Materials
Science symposium)
- bioenabled electronic and energy systems (joint session
with the Biological Materials Science symposium)
