About the International Commission on Glass

The International Commission on Glass is a non-profit international Society of national scientific and technical organizations with particular interests in glass science and technology. It was founded in 1933 and has grown to become the recognized world-wide organization in the field of glass with presently 37 member organizations bringing together the world’s most respected universities, scientific institutions, companies of the glass industry and allied organizations.

The aim of ICG is to promote and stimulate understanding and cooperation between glass experts in the fields of science and technology as well as art, history and education.

The ICG achieves these objectives by organizing Technical Committee work (e.g. laboratory round robins, comparative studies, topical meetings), compiling information on glass (e.g. publishing scientific and technical papers, reports and books) and by sharing and disseminating knowledge on glass in advanced educational courses and workshops. A further major role is to organize international meetings such as the International Congress on Glass held every three years. Click here to meet ICG’s management board.

The American Ceramic Society values diverse and inclusive participation within the field of ceramic science and engineering. ACerS strives to promote involvement and access to leadership opportunity regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, appearance, geographic location, career path or academic level.
