The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at recent advances in glass science. The cover story focuses on what it takes to create glass containers for food and drink packaging. Three feature stories look at composition fluctuations in silica glass containing water, innovations in next-generation windows, and 4D viscous flow sintering of 3D-printed bioactive glass scaffolds.
The June/July issue contains the annual ACerS Bulletin student section. The section opens with an update on President’s Council of Student Advisors activities by PCSA chair Scott McCormack. Then, five students from a variety of disciplines give overviews of their research, from growth of single crystals to bulk 2D materials.
Also, read how Congressional Visits Day 2019 went for Material Advantage students in April, and see the latest news for two upcoming summer meetings—GMFAT-2/Bio-4 and EHS.
Finally, meet the 2018–2019 officers on the ACerS Board of Directors, and learn about all the impressive awards won by ACerS members in recent months.

Scott Cooper and Dan SwilerGlass containers safely package food and drink, as well as communicate brand awareness. Sophisticated glass science, innovation, and manufacturign makes possible these common household items.
Emily M. Aaldenberg and Minoru TomozawaThe large effect of water on glass properties has been observed, but the mechanism remains elusive. Three experiments help reveal the underlying process.
Karma Sawyer, Marc LaFrance, and Chioke HarrisNext-generation windows offer many ways to increase occupant comfort and decrease building energy consumption.
Amy Nommeots-Nomm, Julian R. Jones, Peter D. Lee, and Gowsihan PoologasundarampillaiBioglass products traditionally face a trade-off between good mechanical properties or bioactivity. Glass composition 13-93 may allow for both.
