COVID-19 Update (4/20/20)

Given the ongoing pandemic and uncertainty surrounding travel and social gatherings in 2020, we have decided to postpone the conference until August 2021.  While this presents some challenges and may inconvenience some of our attendees, we believe this is the best solution to preserve the Borate and Phosphate Conference series.  This is also consistent with the increasing number of other scientific meetings which have been cancelled or postponed. 

  • Conference honorees are confirmed for the new date
  • Invited speakers will be updated once we have new information
  • New abstract and registration deadlines will be established for early 2021
  • We are working with the registration vendor to modify cancellation policies

Conference Overview

This joint meeting, to be held at the Corning Radisson Hotel, is comprised of two conferences that will run sequentially. On the third day of the meeting there will be a combined day dedicated to borophosphate glasses followed by a conference dinner to mark the close of the Borate Conference and the start of the Phosphate Conference.


The scientific program features a selection of invited lectures, contributed oral presentations and two poster sessions.


This will be the 10th International Conference on Borate Glasses, Crystals and Melts and the 3rd International Conference on Phosphate Materials.
