Scope Icosahedral ceramics such as boron carbide, boron suboxide and boron-aluminum-magnesium (BAM) compounds are some of the hardest materials used for a variety applications including armor, polishing media, machine tools and wear-resistance nozzles. This symposium is dedicated to the latest theoretical and experimental developments in their processing-structure-property relationships as well as mechanical behavior at a range of strain rates, pressures and temperatures. In recent years, significant advances have been reported on atomistic modeling and in particular, the analysis of amorphization behavior at high-pressure and temperature. Contributions are sought in all areas of modeling, mechanical response, characterization and processing.
