Glass & Optical Materials Division Meeting (GOMD 2017) takes place May 21–26, 2017, in Waikoloa, Hawaii. The technical program features five symposia organized by scientific researchers and technical experts―fundamentals of the glassy state, glasses in healthcare, optical and electronic materials and devices, glass technology and crosscutting topics, and Professor Jacques Lucas Honorary. Technical sessions consisting of oral and poster presentations, led by technical leaders from industry, national laboratories, and academia, will provide an open forum for glass scientists and engineers from around the world to present and exchange findings on recent advances in various aspects related to glass science and technology.
The GOMD Executive Committee, program chairs, and volunteer organizers invite you to join us at GOMD 2017 to learn the state-of-the-art of glass science and engineering, find new collaboration opportunities, and exchange ideas in the international glass community. Students are encouraged to enter their presentations in the annual poster competition for professional recognition and cash awards. Students attending GOMD 2017 are invited to attend career round table for discussions with scientists from industry, national laboratories, and academia about career opportunities and other topics in a casual environment. GOMD 2017 will provide a unique opportunity for students to learn, to interact, and to win prizes and awards!
