S12: Advances in Electroceramics



Electronic ceramics have been used in a wide variety of modern electronic circuits and have seen tremendous growth worldwide over the last few decades. Properties of electronic ceramics include
dielectricity, ferroelectricity, piezoelectricity, several transport properties of electrons & ions, and magnetic and optical properties. These properties are enabling the use of electroceramics for a number of demanding applications in electronic devices for communications, automotive, modern mechatronics and biotechnologies. Most of these applications require high performance and reliable materials. However, significant scientific and technical challenges still remain for understanding fundamental aspects of materials, improving processing technologies and material properties to meet the demands in applications. The purpose of this symposium is to provide an international forum for
scientists, engineers, and technologists to discuss and exchange ideas in fundamental theories, processing technologies, property evaluations and applications of a wide variety of electronic
ceramics. This symposium is intended to bring together scientists, engineers, research staff and students from universities, research institutes and related industrial companies, active in the field of
electronic ceramics.
