11th ICG Montpellier Summer School, July 2019!

A. GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES 

B. HAZARDOUS WASTE VITRIFICATION

MONTPELLIER (France), 7nd-12th JULY 2019 

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 focus on glasses for hazardous waste immobilization, to echo the importance of the nuclear industry and other significant areas of waste disposal. Attention will be given to glass formulation and structure, long-term corrosion behavior, as well as melting technologies for nuclear waste glasses.

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.

How to book and what the contents will be.

5th Wuhan Winter School 20-26th October, 2019

Glass Formation, Structure and Properties
Special theme: Glass for 5G

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 the novel application of glass for 5G, to echo the coming 5G era. Attention will be given to ultrathin, ultrastrong glass and glass fibers, 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)
