13th “Montpellier” workshop for new researchers in glass science

Berlin, Germany, June 28 to July 2, 2022

The workshop will follow the aims and format of the ICG Montpellier Summer Schools. This year, it will take place in Berlin, jointly hosted by BAM Berlin and ICG, immediately before the ICG Congress.

The program will overview fundamentals in glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques, material simulations and tools that probe structure. Specific properties and applications will be included: optical behaviour; transport phenomena; nucleation and crystallisation; strength.

Recognising that it is the International Year of Glass the focus will be on glasses and environment. We will highlight how glasses are positioned within a circular economy, energy consumption in glass manufacture and environmental impact.

The lecturers will be world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that will help participants to develop their understanding by applying what they know to specific issues.

The registration form is now online as a Zoom document. The deadline for registration is May 23, 2022. Participation is limited to 40 people. The programme and more detailed instructions concerning travel and the accommodation will be posted on the ICG web site.
