Fair Conference on Glass Problems

The Conference on Glass Problems, including Advances in Fusion and Processing of Glass Symposium invites engineers, educators, researchers, students, and solutions providers in glass manufacturing to submit an abstract for an oral presentation at this premier industry conference.

Hosted at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Conference on Glass Problems (GPC) is the largest glass manufacturing conference in North America, attracting glass manufacturers and suppliers worldwide to exchange innovations and solutions. The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC), in partnership with Alfred University, co-organize the conference. The GPC is devoted to the technical issues facing professionals responsible for the successful operations of glass manufacturing companies and features two full days of invited and contributed talks in parallel with the 11th Advances in Fusion and Processing of Glass symposium (AFPG).

The AFPG symposium will have two full days of invited as well as contributed talks, in parallel to the GPC, enabling attendees the opportunity to participate in both events. The AFPG symposium addresses the latest developments in the field of glass processing with a strong emphasis on glass melting, attracting researchers, engineers, and experts from both academia and industry who are active in the field.
