The program 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 included: optical behaviour; transport phenomena; nucleation and crystallisation; strength.
Recognising that it is the International Year of Glass the focus will be on glasses and environment. We will highlight how glasses are positioned within a circular economy, energy consumption in glass manufacture and environmental impact.
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.
