GOMD 2018 will take place in San Antonio, Texas, 20-24 May, focussing on the emerging trends in glass science and technology.

The Glass & Optical Materials Division (GOMD) will be holding its annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas, 20-24 May. Technical leaders from industry, national laboratories, and academia will be there to discuss the emerging trends in glass science and technology.
The GOMD technical program features both oral and poster presentations that provide an open forum for glass scientists and engineers from around the world to exchange findings on recent advances in various aspects related to glass science and technology.
GOMD 2018 organizers invite glass scientists and engineers worldwide to share information on recent advances in glass science and technology at this year’s event, with the following five symposia:
* Fundamentals of the glassy state
* Glasses in healthcare – fundamentals and application
* Optical and electronic materials and devices – fundamentals and application
* Glass technology and cross-cutting topics
* Symposium to honour Prof. L. David Pye – glass scholar and ambassador
For an in-depth description of each individual session topic, visit ceramics.org/gomd2018 The conference offers students multiple opportunities to jumpstart their career including networking and mentoring opportunities.
Students are encouraged to enter the annual poster competition for professional recognition and cash awards. They also are invited to a career round table discussion with scientists from industry, national laboratories, and academia about career opportunities and other topics in a casual environment.

During the show, the Glass Corrosion Short Course will look at: How do silicate glasses behave when they come into contact with water? This question is at the heart of many fields of research and is triggered by either industrial or environmental applications. GOMD 2018 also includes a one-day short course on 20 May, taught by industry experts, that gives an up-to-date overview of this topic.
