Scope Modern metal processing and manufacturing technologies offer unparalleled freedom to manipulate the structure and properties of engineering alloys using complex multi-variable and multi-scale processes. Fusion-based additive technologies, for instance, enable fine-tuning the local thermal history of the metal at high spatial resolution by varying the melting strategy. Advanced forming techniques, such as incremental forming, allow to apply complicated and site-specific thermo-mechanical profiles to the material by varying tool geometry, path, and loading conditions. Novel electrochemical processes open the path to precision manufacturing of multi-material components by engineering the reaction of materials precursors at the nanoscale.

The microstructural complexity brought about by these technologies holds exciting opportunities to produce high-performance materials for frontier applications, including those in energy, aerospace & defence, and fusion. These opportunities, however, are often offset by the challenges associated with designing and predicting the optimum functionalities imparted by such a microstructural complexity. In addition, our understanding of the formation and evolution of these microstructures—both during processing as well as in service—are still limited to isolated research cases, making the derivation of universal laws difficult. This symposium aims to bring together experts in materials processing, manufacturing, and design to discuss these challenges and to identify future opportunities for using these novel technologies in engineering applications. Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Compositional and structural control in additive processes,
• Novel multi-physics processing technologies (e.g., those involving chemical, thermal, and mechanical routes),
• Structure-property relations of materials with complex microstructure,
• Stability and evolution of complex microstructures,
• Computer-aided processing of materials with optimum performance,
• Design and applications of materials with complex microstructure,
• Deformation mechanisms of materials with complex microstructures.
