ICG: Opportunity to experience a new culture

Are you keen to attend  our ICG Winter School in China and also experience a new culture at the same time?

If so you might be interested in the grants below. Please send an e-mail to the conference organisers at the addresses given at this web site if you wish to apply.

1) Financial support has been offered by China Triumph Engineering for the next planned ICG Winter School in Wuhan, China (2020).

2) This support provided will be a fixed scholarship to assist towards travel and accommodation costs and the school fees, subject to the prior agreement of the conference organisers.

3) Applicants should be in the early stages of research for a PhD in the glass field or have only recently taken a research position in the glass industry.

4) To apply students should submit to the school organisers a CV, a brief statement of how they hope to benefit from the experience, a supporting letter from their Supervisor and their anticipated costs. They will be expected to submit a statement of what they gained from the experience after the event and to provide a detailed account of their expenses with receipts before they will be re-imbursed.

5) Because we expect considerable competition for these grants, students should not commit themselves to any expenses before their support has been confirmed.

12th ICG Montpellier Summer School, July 2020!

A. GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES 

B. RHEOLOGY-RELAXATION-VISCOSITY

MONTPELLIER (France), 5th-10th JULY 2020 

The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads.

The first thread will overview fundamentals in glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques, material simulations and tools that probe structure. Specific properties and applications will be discussed e.g. optical behaviour, transport phenomena, nucleation and crystallisation, and strength. 

The second thread this year will be: rheology-relaxation-viscosity.

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. 

Is this for you?

If you are a new research student or have just started work in the glass industry then the answer is yes.

6th Wuhan Winter School 1-6th November, 2020

Glass Formation, Structure and Properties
Special theme: Glass fibres

Introduction
The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads. The first thread concerns fundamentals in glass science emphasizing structure-property relationships, experimental techniques and numerical simulations. The second thread this year will focus on glass fibres. Attention will be given to glass fibers for optics and re-inforcement, together with their applications. 

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)
