Scope Invitation Only - This symposium is only for those who have been invited by the symposium organizers to participate.

The 21st century is an age of unprecedented opportunity in material science. Global policymakers have instituted milestones for the reduction of carbon emissions and refuse, with the goal of promoting a sustainable future. Material science has enabled significant advances toward these targets, including the development of fully electric vehicles, implementation of sustainable energy production and storage technology, and minimization of commercial and domestic waste streams. It is apparent that the entire lifecycle of a product, from material extraction to disposal, is as important as the utility the product offers during its lifespan. Presentations in this symposium will share innovative ideas for the design of products and processes that will enable a more sustainable future. Speakers will include professionals from industry who facilitate processing and product improvements, as well as scientists who are developing technologies for the next generation of manufacturing processes.

Solicited topics will include:

1. Challenges in designing long-lasting and high-utility products with sustainable end-of-life plans

2. Design and manufacture of elegant and functional materials with tailored optical, electronic, magnetic, mechanical, or corrosion properties

3. Developments in the transition from single-use to multi-use products

4. Production of energy and goods using sustainable material acquisition practices that reduce carbon emissions and waste

5. New material design concepts that improve quality, performance, and durability of products.

6. Novel engineering and scientific approaches, such as: high-resolution microstructure characterization, computer aided modeling, and test techniques that fill the gap between laboratory experiments and industrially relevant processes.
