About ISNOG 2018

This International Symposium on Non-Oxide and New Optical Glasses, ISNOG 2018, is the 21th 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), South Korea (Jeju, 2014) and Nizhny Novgorod (Russia, 2016).

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 2018 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 2018 will be held in Québec City founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain. It is the cradle of French civilization in North America and the only fortified city north of Mexico. The city has preserved and developed its rich heritage, and the historic district of Old Québec was added to UNESCO's prestigious list of World Heritage Sites in 1985.
