Pagination or Media Count:
The 11th International Symposium, formerly known as the International Symposium on Non-Oxide Glasses, and held about every two years since 1981, is the premier conference for discussion of the latest developments in synthesis, structure, properties, processing and applications of non-oxide glasses and new optical glasses. An important objective of the Symposium is to bridge the gap between scientific understanding and technical requirements so that the enormous future potential of special glasses, including for innovative photonic materials technologies, is realized effectively. For the first time the title of the Symposium has been extended so that it encompasses special oxide glasses, hence making the conference the forum for discussion of all types of non-traditional inorganic glasses. About 100 delegates are attending the 11 Symposium from 21 different countries. ISNOG2 98 is taking place at Tapton Conference Centre, University of Sheffield. Sheffield is the fourth largest city in England and is world famous for its steel and cutlery industries. The University founded the first department of Glass Technology in 1915 and the Symposium is being co-organized by the Centre for Glass Research, which is a direct descendant of the Department of Glass Technology. The City is on the edge of the magnificent Peak District National Park. The 11th Symposium comprises one oral session running 6-10 September 1998. The invitation keynote lecture will be given by Professor David N. Payne of the Optoelectronics Research Centre ORC, University of Southampton, England, and there are 11 invited papers and 46 oral papers in total. There are three separate poster sessions with 74 poster papers in total.
- Ceramics, Refractories and Glass
- Fiber Optics and Integrated Optics
