The Fifteenth International Symposium on Boron,
Borides, and Related Compounds was devoted to all
aspects of solid state research on and the
applications of boron containing materials.
Over the last decades, there has been an
increasing interest in inorganic compounds
with exciting structure-property relationships.
Boron and borides are among those materials,
and they are especially fascinating because
of their electronic, magnetic, and mechanical
properties as well as their complex crystal
The conference was comprised of several
sessions with invited and contributing oral
presentations, and supplemented by a number of
