The following papers in this special issue of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A were presented at the Symposium of Solid-State Interfaces II: Toward an Atomistic-Scale Understanding of Structure, Properties, and Behavior through Theory and Experiment organized during the TMS Annual Meeting at Orlando, Florida, March 11-15, 2012. This symposium was the second in a series of such conferences focusing on interface structure and interfacial properties.

The symposium was well attended, with approximately 70 presentations, among whom 18 were invited. The first session “atomic level structures, compositions, and general methods,”chaired by A. Ardell and X.-Y. Liu, started with an invited talk by M. Harmer on the grain-boundary “complexion.” This was followed by an invited talk by A. Misra on defect structures of interphase boundaries in metallic nano-composites. The next invited talk was by H. Fraser on the structural and compositional transitions across interfaces in titanium alloys.
