The Twenty-Eighth International Conference on Processing and Fabrication of Advanced Materials (PFAM-XXVIII) is being organized by the School of Mechanical and Building Sciences [SMBS] at the Vellore Institute of Technology VIT Chennai [VIT University, CHENNAI (Tamil Nadu), INDIA] to be held in the city of Chennai (Madras) (INDIA), 07 - 09 December 2020. This monumental technical conference will focus on recent advances made in the fields of carbon composite materials, metallic materials, and materials for use in energy systems. The primary purpose of this inter-disciplinary conference is to bring together state-of-the-art developments on all aspects related to the processing and fabrication of advanced materials, spanning the entire spectrum of metals, intermetallic(s), ceramics, ceramic-matrix composites, carbon-carbon composites, metal-matrix composites, intermetallic-matrix composites, advanced polymers and polymer-matrix composites, and advances in the domain of surface and high-temperature coatings. The conference will provide an attractive forum for presenting the latest advances on aspects related and relevant to materials processing and fabrication by researchers and engineers from a cross- section of industry, research laboratories (government and industry specific), and academic institutions. In this monumental conference KEY-NOTE, INVITED and CONTRIBUTED papers will be included. The Key-note and Invited papers from leading-edge academic and industrial research settings will provide a lucid and comprehensive overview of the status and potential future directions for research.Contributed papers will attempt to cover specific problems in the same areas.
