Call for papers!  Submit your abstract by January 15, 2019







Meeting Description  


Make your plans now to attend the International Congress on Glass (ICG) 2019 in Boston, Mass., June 9-14, 2019, to join the expected 1,000 attendees, and over 900 papers and posters representing the best and brightest glass science and technology minds in the world.

Held every three years, the International Congress on Glass has been providing valuable networking and collaborative efforts since the late 1980s. ICG 2019 will include:

  • Special recognition of the 100th anniversary of GOMD
  • Technical, cultural, and historical excursions in and around the Boston area.
  • Student career roundtables
  • Student poster contest 

Save the date for this important glass science and technology meeting. ACerS Glass & Optical Materials Division is the ICG 2019 host.
