ICG: 6th workshop for new researchers in glass science and technology

The sixth workshop of the ICG will focus on glass formation, structure, and properties and the technology of glass melting, held by world expert lecturers. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects to help develop understanding by applying knowledge to specific issues.

ICG’s sixth workshop, to take place 7-11 July 2014, in Montpellier, France, will have two threads, with just days 1 and 5 in common. The first thread will overview fundamentals emphasising optical properties. Talks on measurement/simulation methodologies and what they tell us about glass structure will underpin lectures on properties and their structural dependence e.g. optical behaviour, viscosity and ageing, nucleation and crystallisation.
The second thread, running in parallel, will be concerned with fundamentals of glass melting technology, from batch design to glass melting tanks. The key thermodynamic and physical principles that underpin melting behaviour will be explained in the context of efficient operation and areas for future development.
The lecturers will be world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects to help develop understanding by applying knowledge to specific issues.
Lecturers at the workshop, which will focus on glass formation, structure, and properties and the technology of glass melting, are: K. Bange (ex Schott AG), R. Beerkens (Celsian), Marie-Helene Chopinet (Saint-Gobain), Reinhard Conradt (Aachen), Laurent Cormier (Paris), Joachim Deubener (Clausthal), Alicia Duran (Madrid), B. Hehlen (Montpellier), A. Lankhorst (Celsian), H. Mueller-Simon (DGG-HVG), E. Muijsenberg (Glass Services), John Parker (Sheffield), Akira Takada (Japan), R. Vacher (Montpellier).
