It is our great pleasure to inform you that the XXXIV ATIV International Conference – Where Glass Science, Art and Technology Meet Together will be held in Parma, Italy, from May 12th to May 14th 2020. This conference comes after the great success of the previous international meeting, held in Parma 2014, and of the National Conferences and Training Courses which ATIV promotes every year.

The topics addressed by XXXIV ATIV International Conference have been broadened to cover a wide range of aspects on the science, technology, art and history of glass. Different aspects of glass technology will be deepened, such as hollow and flat glass, artistic glass and decoration and special glasses. In addition, a session will be devoted to history and art of glass. Particular attention will be paid on glass use in industry such as machinery and equipment, automotive, railway and aerospace sectors, with a transversal glance at physical-chemical properties of glass and the connection between glass industry and processing and the environment. In addition to the conference, other events and on-site visits will be organized: Exhibition of Historic Glasses, hand and artistic glass processing demonstration, with pot furnace and master glassmakers and visits to glass companies and other companies in the Parma area.

We are committed to make this event productive and challenging, with hundreds of academics, researchers, companies, producers, associations and magazines actively involved in a dynamic and fruitful international network. XXXIV ATIV International Conference represents an opportunity for researchers, professors and students to share and exchange valuable knowledge, to debate upon current challenges on glass science and technology and to discuss ways forward.
