The ICG is hosting its 9th Summer School Workshop for new researchers in glass science and technology in Montpellier, France, from the 3rd-7th July 2017.

The course is designed for PhD or Masters glass science students, or those who have recently started research in the glass industry.

This year, the course will consist of two main threads.

The first will be an overview of fundamentals in glass formation, structure and properties.

The second will focus on how numerical modelling can help to disentangle some key technological challenges in glass, using product simulations.

Organisers of the course include Prof. R Conradt of Aachen University, and Glass International columnist Prof. J M Parker of the University of Sheffield.

Spaces are limited to 30 participants, and those interested in taking part should contact verres2017@mycema.fr.

The course is €800, reduced to €300 for students and academic staff.

Lodging and meals is a further €220, for five nights accommodation with breakfast in a student residence at the university.

A complete programme of events can be found on the ICG website.
