Polarization and domain engineering has been demonstrated to provide unprecedented properties, leading to the breakthrough in the ferroic materials. Moreover, improved and newly developed polarization and domain control techniques have propelled the studies of domain structure that have renovated and expanded the materials development. This symposium intends to provide an interdisciplinary forum at which investigators involved in basic, applied, and theoretic research can meet to review recent developments in the field of ferroic community.
