You are invited to attend a two-day workshop entitled "Frontiers in Glass: At the Interface between Earth Science and Synthetic Materials" supported by the EPSRC NetworkPlus in Emergence and Physics Far From Equilibrium. This workshop  is aimed at building connections and encouraging collaborations between researchers working on glass-forming materials across disparate but highly complementary disciplines, from Physics and Chemistry, to Earth Science and Industry.

This workshop will take place on 20-21 May 2019. The first day will be held in the University of Bristol School of Earth Sciences with plenary talks in room G25 by Alexandra Navrotsky (UC Davis), Daniel Neuville (IPGP-CNRS, Paris), and Don Dingwell (LMU, Munich). The second day will involve a schedule of invited talks in Engineers House, Clifton, Bristol, with the themes: Glass Physics and Chemistry, Earth Science, Glass Modelling, and Industry.
 
Please register to attend the event here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/frontiers-in-glass-tickets-58396481448. Registration is free for members of the EPSRC NetworkPlus (which can be joined by e-mailing networkplus@manchester.ac.uk with a brief statement of how your research falls into the NetworkPlus remit). Members of the NetworkPlus can also receive support for reasonable domestic travel, accommodation and subsistence.

Non-NetworkPlus members who wish to attend the second day please contact Dr James Drewitt (james.drewitt@bristol.ac.uk) before registration as there may be a small fee to cover refreshment costs (Please note that PhD and undergraduate students cannot become NetworkPlus members)
