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 XXV CONGRESS (2019) will be in Boston, USA.

In the intervening years it sponsors an annual conference. The next such conference will be in Yokohama, Japan from 23-26th September 2018.  The organisers are designing the programme particularly with younger researchers in mind. 

The 2020 Annual Conference will take place in Krakow, Poland and the 2021 Conference in South Korea.

ICG also offers schools for young researchers from industry and academia. They take place in Europe and Asia annually. Grants are available in 2018 to enable European visitors to attend the winter school in Asia and for Asian students to attend the Montpellier Summer School. More information will appear on the Education pages of this site shortly.

The 10th ICG Summer School will take place in Montpellier from 2-6th July 2018 and will have two streams - one' basic science' and a second on 'health'. Register by contacting: verres2018@mycema.fr. You can find more on the Education pages of this web site.

The next ICG Winter School is planned for 13-17th November 2017 at Wuhan, China.
