Annual Meeting of the German Society of Glass Technology held in Nuremberg
From May 13th till 15th 2019, the first joint meeting of the German Society of Glass Technology (DGG) and the French Union for Science and Glass Technology (USTV) took place in Nuremberg with strong participation of our Department.
The meeting was chaired by Prof. Dominique de Ligny (Chair for Glass and Ceramics) while Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini (Institute of Biomaterials), Prof. Erik Bitzek (Chair for General Materials Science), and Prof. Ulrich Lohbauer (Dental School, University Hospital Erlangen) were members of the organizing committee (pictured).
More than a bilateral conference, this was a truly international meeting with participants from 16 different countries. A total of 361 participants attended the conference and more than 180 communications were offered. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together young and experienced scientists and engineers from academia and industry, who work in the fields of glass science, technology and applications. In addition, it provided a broad overview of the state of the art and new trends in the fields. A special program for students, sponsored by the French-German University, was organized in order to support them in contacting representatives from industry and in getting information about future career opportunities in the field of glass.
In 2020, there will be a second joint meeting in Orleans, France.
