||The purpose of this symposium is to provide an international forum for scientists and engineers to discuss and exchange ideas on the state-of-the-art in the processing, characterization and the applications of glass composites. This will bring together people from industry, academics, and national laboratories to present the advances in basic science and technology and to discuss how these can be used to address technological issue faced by both the cutting-edge research community and the industry settings. This symposium will provide researchers a unique the platform and the opportunity to discuss the recent progress of glass composite materials in a wide range of applications.
