20th Congress of the International Association for the History of Glass

7th – 11th September 2015
Fribourg – Romont / Switzerland

More than 280 researchers and glass specialists from 33 countries participated in the 20th Congress of the International Association for the History of Glass (AIHV) in Fribourg and Romont.

The organisers would like to thank all those who enriched the congress by contributing oral or poster presentations. Thanks are also due to the chairpersons for ensuring that the sessions ran smoothly and for stimulating discussion. Without the support of a great number of helpers, partners and sponsors, the congress would not have been possible. We also want to thank all participants for their interest and for helping create such an agreeable atmosphere at the congress. A very big THANK YOU to all of you for contributing to the success of this exciting and fruitful week!

We are looking forward to meeting you again at the 21st Congress of the AIHV in Istanbul!
