2012 Glass & Optical Materials Division Spring Meeting


Final Program


Join the Glass & Optical Materials Division in St. Louis for a program involving the physical properties and technological processes important to glasses, amorphous solids and optical materials. GOMD 2012 set a new submission record with over 270 abstracts in these four symposia: Glass Science, Optical Materials & Devices, Cross-cutting Topics and Festschrift to the Glass Research Career of Prof. Delbert E. Day. Sessions headed by technical leaders from industry, government laboratories, and academia will cover the latest advances in glass science and technology, as well as a focused examination of the amorphous state. The poster session will highlight late-breaking research as well as the annual student poster contest. In addition to the indicated topics, open sessions will be organized for each of the symposia and authors are encouraged to submit generally related papers. Download the Final Program for session information then build your conference schedule with the Itinerary Planner.
