The Czech and Slovak Conference on Glass is a traditional conference whose aim is to mediate social and professional meetings between members of the Czech and Slovak Glass Society and other people interested in glass. As part of its professional program, it will present the main directions of glass research and development and provide a platform for communication between glassmakers from academia and industry. The conference will also include a joint program with the Association of the Glass and Ceramic Industry, where current challenges in industry and education will be discussed.

The program will also host the 18th Conference on Electric Melting of Glass. The main topics will be all-electric melting, hybrid methods of heating glass furnaces, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the use of renewable electricity sources.

 

Program


 

The conference program will be composed of individual thematic blocks. In cooperation with the Association of the Glass and Ceramic Industry, there will also be a panel discussion on current topics and challenges of glass manufacturers. The backbone of the conference will, as usual, consist of invited lectures from leading experts who will present current research in the field of glass and amorphous materials. There will also be a poster section, which will allow other interested parties to present their research, solved problems, or just share their ideas with a wide glass community. The main part of the program will be in Czech and Slovak, but some lectures and posters will be in English.

The annual General Meeting of the Czech Glass Society is also planned as part of the conference program.
