International Conference: Glass, functional material for the future

Nancy - FranceNovember 16th, 17th - 2006Based in Lorraine at the heart of the glass and crystal industry, the “Pole Verrier” along with the network of university glass research laboratories, Revelor, in addressing the issue of glass’ function, hope to raise the question of the "intelligence of the material" in the automotive and building sectors.

Today a glass surface, no longer simply a means of letting in natural light, is endowed with other qualities which are shaping our environment. While some products are already on the market, many others are still in the research stage.

This is why we invite you -- researchers, business people, teachers, students --to share your knowledge, your unique points of view, your experiences, and your questions as well during this glass conference.
