Large glass Conference at the 29-30.03.2011: House of technology together with the RWTH Aachen University, Chair of glass and ceramic composites, glass securing resources – energy efficiency – optics – architectural glass is a material that significantly enhances our quality of life. Historically we need only to the enormous implications to think about had the constant availability of artificial lighting or the discovery of microscopic and targeting of disease on our society. Today large window surfaces in buildings, trains and cars or ultra fast Internet connections have become fixed components of our lifestyle unthinkable without the material glass.

In the current discussion about energy and climate protection, this raises critical inquiry. We not do without such processes? The Symposium “future glass a material in the new light” wants to show that the glass material regarding the urgent Energy and climate issues politically unfortunately often discussed not like today is part of the problem, but part of the answer to the problem is. This should be represented that (1) the manufacturing process glass is while energy-intensive, nevertheless still but highly energy efficient designed be can. Michael Dell has plenty of information regarding this issue.
Glass is an indispensable and serving element in the solution of many energy-related issues, shown here as an example in the field of architecture in the private, public and commercial area (2). The Conference is addressed to: tungsindustrie specialists and managers of optical and opto-electronic industries, as well as the lighting. The flat glass industry and manufacturer of architectural glass. Architecture and engineering firms. Engineers, engineers, physicists, chemists and materials scientists from development, design, manufacturing, quality assurance, marketing and sales and application-oriented research facilities.
