The ICG’s fifth workshop for new researchers in glass science and technology will concentrate on glasses: formation, structure, and transport properties, and will take place 8-12 July in Montpellier, France.
Taking place 8-12 July in Montpellier, France, The ICG’s fifth workshop for new researchers in glass science and technology will overview key fundamentals in glass science with an emphasis on structure-property relationships. Each day will start with a talk on available measurement/simulation methodologies and their contribution to our understanding of glass structure, 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. In this fifth programme of the series, special attention will be given to transport properties, such as ionic and water diffusion. The lectures will be presented by world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that encourage interactive learning and help develop understanding by applying what learned to specific issues.
A more complete programme will be circulated shortly and will appear on the ICG website.
