About ISNOG 2016
This International Symposium on Non-Oxide and New Optical Glasses, ISNOG 2016, is the 20th of a successful series of meetings, the first of which was held in Cambridge (UK) in 1981, followed by Troy (USA, 1983), Rennes (France, 1985), Monterey (USA, 1987), Shizuoka (Japan, 1988), Clausthal-Zellerfeld (Germany, 1989), Lorne (Victoria, Australia, 1991), Perros-Guirec (France, 1992), Hangzhou (China, 1994), Corning (USA, 1996), Sheffield (UK, 1998), Florianopolis (Brazil, 2000), Pardubice (Czech Republic, 2002), Florida (USA, 2004), Bangalore (India, 2006), Montpellier (France, 2008), Ningbo (China, 2010) San Malo (France, 2012) and South Korea (Jeju, 2014).
ISNOG deals with the synthesis, processing, characterization, modeling and physical properties of novel non-oxide, hybrids, glass ceramics and new functional glasses with high technological impact potential such as nano, bio and energy applications. This time, the symposium also deals with glass materials for displays and lightings which are industrially important. Special attention will be paid to low optical loss non-oxide and special glasses.
ISNOG 2016 will provide a great opportunity for material scientists, chemists, physicists, and device engineers to debate about the state of the art and perspectives, to share their ideas, solutions and issues related to the crucial role played by Non-Oxide and New Optical Glasses in cutting edge technologies.
ISNOG 2016 will be held in the ancient Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod where can provide perfect place for the scientific discussions and comfortable stay.
