Symposium EN15 The quick growth of research on lead halide perovskites in the past several years not only offers an interesting class of materials for photovoltaic application, but it also demonstrates high defect tolerance in these materials. Understanding the mechanisms behind the defect tolerance and transplanting the mechanisms to other stable perovskite semiconductors would potentially lead to a transformative leap in semiconductor research. This symposium was dedicated to dissemination and discussion of novel materials physics of perovskite semiconductors. Symposium EP06 The goal was to provide an overview of current active topics of research in materials science targeted at developing new materials for analytics and neuromorphic computing. It featured invited talks from researchers who provided high-level views of machine learning trends, requirements from systems development perspectives, as well as cutting-edge developments in new materials systems such as memristors, chalogenides, magnetic and ferroelectric materials. It brought together researchers who are developing new materials and novel nanoscale device structures aimed to design a new generation of information processing engines that are not limited by the constraints of conventional von Neumann architecture. Symposium NM11 This symposium covered fundamental mechanics theory and modeling of atomically-thin materials and devices, elucidating how controlled deformation and strain engineering can enable new materials properties and device functions. On the experimental side, it covered advances in material synthesis and assemblyprocessing as well as controlled deformation and straining of atomically-thin materials. Interdisciplinary topics related to mechanics, physics, and materials science and engineering were presented by invited speakers in order to accelerate the development of new forms of materials and applications.
