THE 12th WORKSHOP FOR NEW RESEARCHERS IN GLASS ( A virtual event)
GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES & RHEOLOGICAL BEHAVIOUR
MONTPELLIER (France), 5th-9th JULY 2021
The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads.
The first thread will overview fundamentals in glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques, material simulations and tools that probe structure. Specific properties and applications will be discussed e.g. optical behaviour, transport phenomena, nucleation and crystallisation, and strength.
The second thread will focus on the viscosity of commercial and geological glass forming melts, measurement methods and models to describe the temperature and composition dependence. Viscoelastic behaviour near the glass transition, Tg will be described, particularly in the context of glass fabrication processes.
The lecturers will be world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that will help participants to develop their understanding by applying what they know to specific issues.
Is this for you ?
If you are a new PhD or Masters student or have recently started research in the glass industry then the answer is yes.
- Standard fee: 400 € for those in full time employment.
- Special fee: 150 € for bona fide students and academics.
The book produced to celebrate the 10th Montpellier Summer School “Teaching Glass Better” is recommended and can be pre-ordered at a discounted price :
“Teaching Glass Better”: 45 € (10% discount) plus postage
A more complete programme is available on the ICG web site (www.icglass.org)
This virtual event will be run using Microsoft Teams but the special features of the School such as Tutorials ‘under the pine trees’ and the Project work carried out in small groups will be retained, in their normal interactive format as far as possible.
We also hope to give you a taste of Montpellier, the city.
