Established in 1978 and 2008, respectively, the International Otto Schott Colloquium and the Workshop on Glass & Entropy have been conducted as discussion meetings at the forefront of glass science. Both meetings were focusing on connecting diverse backgrounds, the former crossing national borders between East and West, and the latter bridging communities.
Following a 13-year hiatus, we now happily announce the
9TH OTTO SCHOTT COLLOQUIUM
to be held in conjunction with the
4TH WORKSHOP ON GLASS & ENTROPY
on September 9-12, 2019, at the University of Jena, Germany.
Following the philosophy of both workshop series, the primary goal of the conference will be to bring together scientists from diverse areas of glass research to embark on four days of discussion. In the 2019 meeting, the primary focus will be on novel paths towards as-of-yet unexploited states of glass, be they conceptual, experimental or computational. This will include three days dedicated to three specific topics: hidden, forbidden or perfect glasses, glasses obtained with unexpected chemical composition or synthesis procedures, including gas and liquid-phase deposition, and the relevance of new insights for understanding mechanical behaviour, deformation and fracture processes.
Contributions are invited in any of the three topical sessions. If you are interested in presenting your work, please provide a title and abstract to email@example.com or any member of the organizing team for further consideration before January 31th, 2019.
