ICG: workshop for new researchers in glass science and surface and thin film technology

ICG will organize its 7th summer school in Montpellier, France, July 6-10, 2015 and now 2015 Montpellier Summer School programmes, speakers announced.

The 2015 Summer School will be organized as two parallel streams, one following a glass science theme, focused more on academic topics, and the second looking at glass surface and thin film technologies both from an industrial and academic perspective.The glass science workshop will overview key fundamentals in glass science with an emphasis on structure-property relationships and transport phenomena. Each day will start with a talk on available measurement/simulation methodologies and their contribution to our understanding of glass structure and transport processes, both on different length scales and for a broad spectrum of inorganic glass-forming systems. These will be complemented by talks on properties and their structural dependence e.g. optical behaviour, viscosity and ageing, nucleation and crystallisation but also on chemical durability and corrosion. The second stream will present in depth the most relevant analytical techniques for characterizing surfaces and thin films, different surface modification technologies and thin film deposition methods but also modern glass applications based on these technologies. A few fundamental lectures will include both streams. Participants can also choose freely which stream to attend.

The lectures will be given by world leading experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that encourage interactive learning and help participants to develop their understanding by applying what they know to specific issues.

The course is designed for new PhD students or for young researchers who have recently started research in the glass industry. Cost to be €700 including coffee, lunches, opening reception and a Thursday evening dinner, but with a discount to €300 for bona fide students. Additionally we offer conveniently situated student accommodation including breakfast at €220 (prepaid) for those wishing to take it. Participants will be limited to 50.
