A Tradition of Global Cooperation in the Challenging World of Glass
ICG is a non-profit making international GLASS SOCIETY comprising 33 national organizations in glass science and technology.
ICG promotes cooperation between glass experts through Technical Committee work (round robin testing, publication of scientific & technical papers) and conferences.
The symbol in the logo is the Egyptian hieroglyph for "brilliance".
Every three years ICG organises the International Congress on Glass, and sponsors an annual conference during the intervening years. We also arrange regular schools for young researchers.

ICG wishes to encourage
more national institutions to join as members
more individuals to serve on ICG Technical Committees
At the annual meeting in Vancouver (June, 2009) a further two countries joined ICG, following the three that joined in 2008. Since then, several companies have joined under the new rules introduced recently as changes to the constitution. In Bangkok during the annual conference (2015), Iran became the latest country to be added to the list of National Participating Organisations.
