The Alfred R. Cooper Session and the invited Cooper Distinguished Speaker highlights the spirit of the late Professor Alfred R. Cooper. Dr. Cooper was for many years a member of the faculty at Case Western Reserve University and a prominent contributor to the understanding of many glass phenomena and glass problems. He had a particular interest in fostering careful analytical thinking in young people as part of their education, and encouraged them to seek rigorous quantitative solutions to glass research issues. The session’s purpose is to encourage and recognize undergraduate students who have demonstrated excellence in research, engineering, and/or study in glass science or technology. The lectures are presented during the GOMD Cooper Session at MS&T each year. Donations to the Cooper Fund are always welcome.
The Cooper Session Distinguished Speaker is invited by the GOMD Program Committee in consultation with the GOMD Chair.
