S8: 8th International Symposium on Advanced Processing and Manufacturing Technologies for Structural and Multifunctional Materials and Systems (APMT8) in honor of Professor Stuart Hampshire



The aim of this international symposium is to discuss global advances in the research and development of advanced processing and manufacturing technologies for a wide variety of fiber reinforced and particulate composites, non-oxide and oxide based structural ceramics, and multifunctional materials, as well as their components and devices. Current advances and state-of-the-art in various eco-friendly processing approaches will be covered. Advances in various processing and manufacturing technologies for fine scale MLCCs and transparent or electronic ceramic devices will also be presented.

This international symposium is being held in honor of Professor Stuart Hampshire, University of Limerick, Ireland, recognizing his outstanding contributions to science and technology of advanced structural and multifunctional ceramics and his tireless efforts in promoting their wide scale industrial applications.
