The International Commission on Glass (IGC) has released more information on their eleventh summer school program, which takes place from July 8 to 12 in Montpellier, France. The workshop is composed of two interwoven threads, with the first being an overview on the fundamentals of glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques, material simulations and tools that probe structure.

The second thread this year will focus on glasses for hazardous waste immobilization, to echo the importance of the nuclear industry and other significant areas of waste disposal. Attention will be given to glass formulation and structure, long-term corrosion behaviour, as well as melting technologies for nuclear waste glasses.

A schedule for the workshop has also been released:

 

 

 

 

A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centered projects to help participants to develop their understanding by applying what they know to specific issues. The workshops are geared toward new research student or individuals who have just started work in the glass industry. They are limited to fifty participants. Normally the fee for participation is 900 EUR, however students and academics can attend for 350 EUR. Additionally there is a 250 EUR fee for 6 nights of lodging with breakfasts in a student residence at the university.
