Borate/Phosphate glasses

The 9th International Conference on Borate Glasses, Crystals and Melts and the 2nd International Conference on Phosphate Glasses will be held sequentially on 24-28 July, 2017, at St Anne's College, Oxford.

The Borate Conference is a forum for the discussion of current scientific research on borate materials (with a chemical composition that includes B2O3).The Borate Conference will be held on 24-26 July 2017. The 9th Borate Conference will be held in honour of Professor Steve Feller of Coe College, Iowa, USA,  in recognition of his unique contribution to the study of borate materials.

The Phosphate Conference is a forum for the discussion of current scientific research on phosphate glasses (with a chemical composition that includes P2O5). The Phosphate Conference will be held on 26-28 July 2017.

In 2014 the Borate and Phosphate Conferences were held sequentially in Pardubice, Czech Republic - see previous conference website .

The Conferences are being organised by the Society of Glass Technology, and the chairman of the local organising committee is Dr Emma Barney of the University of Nottingham.
