ICG’s fifth summer school in Montpellier, France, will overview key fundamentals in glass science with an emphasis on structure-property relationships and transport phenomena.
The International Commission on Glass (ICG) is organizing its fifth summer school in Montpellier, France, 8-12 July 2013.
This workshop will overview key fundamentals in glass science with an emphasis on structure-property relationships and transport phenomena. Each day will start with a talk on available measurement/simulation methodologies and their contribution to understanding of glass structure and transport processes, both on different length scales and for a broad spectrum of inorganic glass-forming systems. These lectures will underpin talks on properties and their structural dependence e.g. optical behaviour, viscosity and ageing, nucleation and crystallization but also on chemical durability and corrosion. In this fifth programme of the series, special attention will be given to formation, structure and transport properties in glasses. The lectures will be presented by world leading experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that encourage interactive learning and help to develop understanding by applying what learned to specific issues.
The course is designed for new PhD students or for young researchers who have recently started research in the glass industry. The cost of EUR 500 includes lunches, opening reception and Thursday evening dinner, with a discount of EUR 250 for bona fide students. Student accommodation, including breakfast, is also offered at EUR 250 (prepaid) for those wishing to take it. Participants will be limited to 50. Those who wish to take part should contact the conference office at: email@example.com or the conference organizers: firstname.lastname@example.org or Bernard.Hehlen@univ-montp2.fr.
A more complete programme will appear soon on the ICG website (www.icglass.org).
