The Society of Glass Technology Centenary

 The Society of Glass Technology celebrates its centenary in 2016, and is planning a conference that will be a significant opportunity to review the state of glass in its widest manifestations – from the theoretical challenges of understanding the glassy state and the glass transition to the latest developments in the application of glasses in windows and containers, information technology, medical applications, and waste vitrification, as well as the history and artistic applications of glass.

The huge area concerning the history and heritage aspects of glass will form a parallel stream in the conference, and stained and painted architectural glass of all periods will be a strong theme.

The conference will take place in Sheffield (UK), 4–9 September 2016. See the society’s website for more details as information becomes available.
