The focus of this Symposium is to discuss innovative approaches to develop, characterize and apply ceramics containing a high volume of tailored porosity, ranging in size from Angstroms to millimeters.
These porous ceramics include high surface and cellular architectures such as honeycombs, foams, scaffolds, hollow fibers, fiber networks, membranes, nano-, micro- and meso-porous materials, monoliths and coatings possessing hierarchical porosity, as well as structures produced by the replication of biological templates or by additive manufacturing technologies.
Such porous components find use in a wide range of emerging applications in environmental protection, water purification, energy production and saving, molecular scale sensing, optical devices and a number of advanced industrial applications.

The main topics that will be addressed are:
  • New materials and synthesis mechanisms
  • Materials optimization at the nano- and meso-scale
  • Theory and experimental evaluation of physical and chemical processes related to material functions such as transport phenomena, defect chemistry, interface reactions, separation and catalysis mechanisms, etc…
  • Novel design and fabrication of components and devices
  • Evaluation of material/component/ device performance
  • Advances in testing methods
  • Modeling of structure and properties of porous ceramics
  • Topological optimization of porous ceramic components
  • Engineering applications of porous ceramics
