10th ICG Montpellier Summer School, upcoming on July 2018 !

A. GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES 

B. BIOGLASSES

MONTPELLIER (France), 2nd-7th JULY 2018 

The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads.

The first will overview fundamentals in glass 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 bioglasses and glasses for pharmaceutical packaging. Attention will be given to the structure and properties of bioactive glasses, hybrids and composites, for the design of new materials for health applications.  Compatibility with human body of prostheses and scaffolds, will be discussed. The interactions with drugs and molecules with glass, adsorption, delamination problems of glass containers for pharmaceutical products, will also be treated.

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.

A more complete programme will  be published later (March 2018).

4th Wuhan Winter School 2018

Wuhan, China, 4th-10th Nov, 2018

Glass Formation, Structure, Properties; Glasses for Nuclear Waste Immobilization

Introduction
The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads. The first thread will overview fundamentals in glass science emphasizing
structure-property relationships, experimental techniques and numerical simulations. The second thread this year will focus on glasses for nuclear waste immobilization, to echo the rapid growth of China nuclear industry. 

Attention will be given to glass formulation and structure, long-term corrosion behavior, as well as melting technologies of nuclear waste glasses.

One significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centered projects that will help participants to develop their understanding by applying what they know to specific issues. The other is to strengthen the fundamentals of glass science to fresh engineers from glass industry.

The lecturers are the world experts in their fields and will be announced in the next circular.

Organization
ICG-TC23, The Chinese Ceramic Society, China Triumph International Engineering Co. Ltd (CTIEC), Wuhan University of Technology, State Key Laboratory of Silicate Materials for Architectures (SMART)
