About the Workshop:

The Silicon Workshop promotes an informal exchange of technical and scientific information between international researchers in the photovoltaic and relevant non-photovoltaic fields.

  • Oral presentations by invited speakers
  • Open discussion following each oral session
  • Poster sessions, which present the latest research results

Ample opportunities exist for technical discussions in each session and with the authors during the poster presentations. This interaction offers an excellent opportunity for researchers in private industry and universities to prioritize mutual needs for future collaborative research.

The younger generation of scientists and engineers in the photovoltaic area is encouraged to participate. We offer PV Graduate Students a substantially reduced registration fee to promote their participation.
