Global Cooperation in the World of Glass
ICG is a not-for-profit GLASS SOCIETY comprising 33 national organizations in glass science and technology.
ICG promotes cooperation between glass experts through its Technical Committees (round robin testing, publication of scientific & technical papers) and by assisting in the organisation of conferences.
Its logo features the Egyptian hieroglyph for "brilliance".

Every three years ICG organises an International Congress on Glass. The last was in Shanghai, China. The XXV CONGRESS (2019) will be in Boston, USA.
In the intervening years it sponsors an annual conference. The next such conference will be in Istanbul, Turkey from 22-25th October 2017 and will specifically feature ways to assist younger researchers to attend. Post-docs and students at national and international level can register at half the regular fee; they must simply confirm their position by presenting a letter from their head of the department. AND any student whose submitted abstract is accepted as an oral presentation will be offered free registration.
ICG also offers schools for young researchers from industry and academia. They take place in Europe and Asia annually.
The 9th ICG Summer School will take place in Montpellier from 3-7th July 2017 and has two streams - one' basic science' and a second on 'computer modelling'. Register by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find more about the lecture content on the Education pages of this web site.
The next ICG Winter School is planned provisionally for 13-17th November 2017 in Asia.
