Glass Problems Conference goes virtual
The 81st Conference on Glass Problems (GPC) is to be held as a virtual rather than as a live event on 26-30 October 2020.
The decision is based on guidance from the World Health Organisation and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as local government and public health authorities in Columbus, Ohio. Glass Worldwide is official journal of GPC events, which are organised by the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council, in association with Alfred University.
According to Bob Lipetz, Conference Director and Executive Director at the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council, full details about the Virtual Conference on Glass Problems will be provided on 3 August, when registration opens. “We appreciate the efforts of our organisers, volunteers, vendors and partners to work with us and respond to a fast changing situation in a way that allows us to continue to serve our members and mission. We apologise for this inconvenience; however, we believe that pivoting to a virtual conference will protect the health of our attendees and staff members.”
Mr Lipetz confirmed that a robust, content rich programme, symposium and short courses will be provided.
