Winter School Japan
All-Paid US-Japan Winter School on New Functionalities in Glass
The goal of this School is to expose interested students to the crucial role played by glasses in the cutting-edge applications of today, and emerging technologies of the future. They will learn about the newest frontiers in glass science and technology, and their potential contributions in energy, healthcare, defense and telecommunications. It is hoped that the graduates of this program will apply newly acquired knowledge to their current or future materials research, and ultimately contribute to the development of new functionalities for glass and related materials.
The School will cover about a dozen topics and consist of lectures by the leaders of the field from all over the world, laboratory demonstrations, and visits to the most advanced programs of glass research in Japanese companies and universities. Kyoto is the cultural capital of Japan , and therefore guided tours and visits are planned to major cultural attractions of Kyoto and neighboring regions. Thus, the School will provide educational as well as cultural experience of a life time. In total, 15 students will be selected from the United States , who will share accommodation with as many Japanese students and faculty of the program. They will live within the same facility, thus providing ample opportunity for free discussions.
The Selection Committee is pleased to announce the selection of the following US partipants to the All-Paid US-Japan Winter School on New Functionalities in Glass. The committee regrets that not all the qualified students could be admitted due to a very keen competition with nearly four times the applications from 22 Universities than the available positions.
