Join the Glass & Optical Materials Division (GOMD) for its annual meeting May 22-26, 2022, in Baltimore, Md. The 2022 GOMD meeting is special because 2022 has been declared the “International Year of Glass” by the United Nations. We will have a number of special events to commemorate this occasion as we meet together in-person for the first time since 2019.

Not ready to commit to an in-person event? GOMD 2022 will run as a hybrid meeting and offers a virtual option for those not ready to meet in person. You can submit your abstract now and decide later whether you’ll present in-person or virtually.

The 2022 technical program will feature four symposia: Fundamentals of the Glassy State; Glass and Interaction with its Environment—Fundamentals and Applications; Optical and Electronic Materials and Devices—Fundamentals and Applications; Glass Technology and Cross-cutting Topics.

Students are encouraged to enter their presentations in the annual poster competition for professional recognition and cash awards. Students attending the 2022 GOMD meeting are invited to attend a career roundtable discussion with scientists from industry, national laboratories, and academia about career opportunities and other topics in a casual environment. This 2022 GOMD meeting will provide a unique opportunity for students to learn, interact, and win.
