Scope Processing and manufacturing routes control the microstructure and properties of advanced structural and functional ceramic materials. Almost all stages during the manufacturing of ceramics have some effects on the mechanical, electrical, and optical properties of ceramic products. Some of the manufacturing variables may include the purity and particle size of the starting powders, mixing and milling of powders, and the consolidation process, which may influence the microstructural formation, such as the phase transformation, grain growth, porosity, defects, and residual stress in ceramics.
The purpose of this symposium is to provide an international forum to foster the discussion of the recent advances in manufacturing and processing of advanced ceramics, with a focus on processing-microstructure relationship. This symposium seeks technical presentations related to experimental and modeling studies of various processes related to the synthesis, sintering, casting, additive manufacturing, machining, welding, and surface engineering of ceramic materials. The symposium will encompass, but not limited to, the following themes:

• Synthesis of ceramic powders, such as sol-gel, molten salt, hydrothermal synthesis
• Sintering of ceramics, including spark plasma sintering, microwave sintering, flash sintering, cold sintering, laser sintering, etc.
• Welding and joining methods for ceramics
• Surface engineering of ceramics, including coating, shot peening, laser peening, etc.
• Multiscale models and/or in-situ experimental methods to understand the processing mechanisms in ceramics
• Emerging technologies for additive manufacturing of ceramics, such as selective laser melting/sintering, powder bed fusion, binder jetting, digital light processing.
