9th ICG Montpellier Summer School 2017
A. GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES
B. HOW NUMERICAL MODELING CAN HELP TO DISENTANGLE SOME KEY TECHNOLOGICAL CHALLENGES IN GLASSES.
MONTPELLIER (France), 3rd-7th JULY 2017
The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads.
The first thread will overview fundamentals in glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques and material simulations. Specific properties, their structural dependence and applications will be discussed e.g. optical behaviour, transport phenomena, nucleation and crystallisation, and strength.
The second thread this year will focus on a variety of process and product simulations. On the one hand, numerical technologies combined with experiments offer the optimal design guide for key industrial processes, e.g. heat transfer, melt flow, and glass forming. On the other hand, stress analysis and data-oriented technologies are beneficial to designing products of sufficient quality.
In the sessions where the two threads overlap, all participants will cross two bridges: one between science and technology, the other between academia and industry.
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.

2nd ICG Winter School
Winter School, Asia, 13th-17th November, 2017
This workshop will review glass science, structure-property relationships, experimental techniques and numerical simulations. Specific properties, their structural dependence and applications will be discussed, e.g. optical behavior, viscosity and ageing, transport phenomena, nucleation and crystallization.
The lecturers will be world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that will help you to develop your understanding by applying what your knowledge to specific issues. If you are a new PhD or Masters student or have recently started research in the glass industry then this workshop is the right choice for you.
Details of this School will be announced nearer to the date.
