This year´s Otto Schott Research Award will be presented to the esteemed glass scientist Prof. Dr. C. Austen Angell from Arizona State University, USA for his pioneering, lasting scientific contributions throughout his illustrious research career. The prestigious Otto Schott Research Award will be presented as part of the Conference Opening Ceremony.

Prof. Angell’s impressive contribution to the world of glass science is best expressed in numbers:

  • 100 of his 523 essays to date have been cited over 100 times
  • Angell’s publications have been cited nearly 58,000 times of which 17,500 coming within the last five years
