SYMPOSIUM 1: FUNDAMENTALS OF THE GLASSY STATE

This symposium will provide a discussion forum on fundamental principles of glass science. Contributions covering experimental and theoretical developments in the field of glass science are welcome. Topics of interest include novel developments in the following sessions.

SYMPOSIUM 2: GLASS AND WATER: DEGRADATION OF AMORPHOUS MATERIALS

Whether applied as protective surface coatings, in biological environments, or in the immobilization of nuclear waste, understanding the mechanisms and kinetics of glass degradation and dissolution remains a technical challenge in glass science. The stages of glass dissolution are now well established, however significant challenges remain in evaluating the role of composition, processing, additives, and the environment on the structural rearrangement and durability of the glass. These challenges are best resolved by sharing knowledge and expertise from the diverse variety of glass-related applications. This symposium will focus on how water and glass interact, including an appraisal of fundamental approaches towards identification of mechanisms of glass dissolution, how variation in material properties and process, and the degradation environment impacts on the dissolution behavior, or how characterization can be used investigate the complex dissolution process.

SYMPOSIUM 3: OPTICAL AND ELECTRONIC MATERIALS AND DEVICES — FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS

Optical and electronic materials and devices are of critical importance for applications, including sustainable energy, information technology, nonvolatile memory, sensing, medical diagnostics and treatment, and national defense. This symposium will address processing and properties of optical and electronic materials as well as design, fabrication, and performance of functional devices.

Submit Abstract

SYMPOSIUM 4: GLASS TECHNOLOGY AND CROSS-CUTTING TOPICS

Glass can be engineered with a wide range of properties and in many different forms for both active and passive applications for current and emerging energy and environmental technologies. This symposium will draw an arc from the fundamental approaches (interplay of theory, modeling and experiment) via material properties (compositional influences and signatures) and their characterization (in-situ, ex-situ) to manufacturing (novel processing techniques).

GOMD 2020 STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Poster Session & Student Poster Competition

Organizers: Joy Banerjee, Corning Inc., USA, Mostafa Ahmadzadeh, Washington State University, USA

Poster abstracts will be accepted for all sessions in all symposia. Students are encouraged to enter their presentations in the annual poster competition for professional recognition and cash awards!

Career Roundtable

Organizers: Xiaonan Lu, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA, Nicole Wiles, Cornell University, USA

Students attending GOMD 2020 are invited to attend an information roundtable discussion with scientists from industry, national laboratories, and academia. This will be an opportunity for students to ask scientists questions in a casual environment on diverse topics (work-life balance, career opportunities, etc.). The scientists will rotate every 15 minutes so that students have a chance for candid discussions with several professional scientists during the session.
