Interface: Glass, Art, and Technology

Dear Members and Friends of the Glass Art Society,

We are pleased to announce that the 44th Glass Art Society Conference will be held in San Jose, California. San Jose is a hotbed of technological innovation and is surrounded by a vibrant cultural arts community. This area is bursting with creative ideas and GAS is excited to invite its membership to interface with the unique tech culture of San Jose.

Centered in the capitol of the Silicon Valley, downtown San Jose is a largely walkable area that will give conference attendees a pleasant and sunny commute between venues. Specific venues are still under development, but we will keep you updated as we secure locations. Please be aware, conference presentations will take place from Friday June 5 - Sunday June 7, a slight shift from previous conference schedules.

The theme of the 2015 GAS conference in San Jose is Interface: Glass, Art, and Technology. We invite proposals that explore the many ways in which glass and technology can foster connectivity and infuse one another with innovative possibilities.

This conference strives to bring together the opposite ends of silicon (from soda-lime glass to semiconductor electronics) and will require truly unique content, venues and partners.

We are now accepting proposals for conference presentations including lectures, demonstrations, lec-mos, and panel discussions. GAS invites you to submit presentation ideas that will best highlight the theme.

The deadline for proposals is June 1. Deadline extended to Thursday June 5, 2014.

Thank you for your continued support of the Glass Art Society. We look forward to seeing you in San Jose!


Sincerely,
