The second workshop for new researchers in glass science and applications will take place in Wuhan, China next month.

The event will be held from March 31 to April 4 this year and will overview the fundamentals in glass science.

It will emphasise structure-property relationships as well as experimental techniques and numerical simulations.

The lecturers will be world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centered projects that will help develop understanding by applying knowledge to specific issues.

The workshop is appropriate to a new PhD or Masters student or have recently started research in the glass industry.

Registration fee is RMB2000 which includes a welcome reception on March 31, 2016, coffee breaks, lunch and dinner, accommodation (March 31 to April 4, 2016) and a banquet on April 4. The registration deadline is 15/3/2016 and participants are limited to 30 (first come, first served).
