In addition, a school will be organized on Thursday and Friday just before the workshop (March 17,18) in Rennes, for students (any age ;-) who wish to have some prior introduction to the topics. The school will consist in four sessions: i) Basic glass science and mechanical properties of glasses; ii) Deformation processes (elasticity, viscosity, viscoelsticity, stress relaxation) and glass shaping technologies; iii) Brittle fracture: experiments and theories; iv) Creep, fatigue, and durability of glass. The school will be free of charge provided attendees register for the workshop (note that Saint-Malo is only about 40 min by train or 1 hour by car from Rennes). Don't hesitate to invite your students to participate since some support might be available (from IMI-NFG for instance, from the GDR CNRS "Verre" or from Doctorate Schools for French ones). Application to the school can be done directly through the websiste.
