Join ACerS Glass and Optical Materials Division (GOMD) for its annual meeting May 17–21, 2020, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Technical leaders from industry, national laboratories, and academia will lead technical sessions featuring both oral and poster presentations that 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.

Students are encouraged to enter their presentations in the annual student poster competition for professional recognition and cash awards! Students attending GOMD 2020 are also 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. GOMD 2020 will provide a unique opportunity for students to learn, interact, and win!

The GOMD Executive Committee, program chairs, and volunteer organizers sincerely hope you will join us at GOMD 2020 to find new collaborative opportunities and to exchange ideas in the international glass community.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
