In light of recent events related to the coronavirus known as COVID-19, The American Ceramic Society is announcing that the 2020 Glass and Optical Materials Division Annual Meeting (GOMD 2020) will be canceled for this year.

This decision, which was not taken lightly, is based on guidance from the WHO and the CDC, as well as local government and public health authorities of our conference venue.

If you have already registered for the conference, please contact our customer service department at 1-866-721-3322 or customerservice@ceramics.org to arrange to have your registration fee refunded.

We appreciate the efforts of our organizers, volunteers, vendors, and partners to work with us and respond to a fast-changing situation in a way that allows us to continue to serve our members and mission. We apologize for this inconvenience; however, we believe that canceling this meeting will protect the health of our attendees and staff members.

The next GOMD meeting will return May 23–28, 2021 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC. The 2021 meeting is co-located with the 14th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology. We will be in touch soon about other Glass & Optical Materials Division activities, and a follow-up email will be sent asking for feedback of GOMD 2020 authors.
