Technical Program Overview
Technical Program Overview
This ECI (Engineering Conference International) conference will discuss recent advances in glass research as well as identify the requirements that glass must satisfy for new and emerging applications. It will focus especially on energy and information technologies in which glass is expected to have a large impact in the near future. The Conference will aim to establish dialog between leading glass users and active glass researchers, together with the glass manufacturers who often serve as the interface between these two communities, through a series of invited talks, panel discussions, breakout sessions and poster sessions.
