Iván Mora-Seró (1974, M. Sc. Physics 1997, Ph. D. Physics 2004) is researcher at Universitat Jaume I de Castelló (Spain). His research during the Ph.D. at Universitat de València (Spain) was centered in the crystal growth of semiconductors II-VI with narrow gap. On February 2002 he joined the University Jaume I. From this date until nowadays his research work has been developed in: electronic transport in nanostructured devices, photovoltaics, photocatalysis, making both experimental and theoretical work. Currently he is associate professor at University Jaume I and he is Principal Researcher (Research Division F4) of the Institute of Advanced Materials (INAM). Recent research activity was focused on new concepts for photovoltaic conversion and light emission based on nanoscaled devices and semiconductor materials following two mean lines: quantum dot solar cells with especial attention to sensitized devices and lead halide perovskite solar cells and LEDs, been this last line probably the current hottest topic in the development of new solar cells.
Sixto Gim�nez (1973, M. Sc. Physics 1996, Ph. D. Physics 2002) is researcher at Universitat Jaume I de Castell� (Spain). His professional career has been focused on the study of particulated materials. During his PhD thesis at the University of Navarra, he studied the relationship between processing of metallic and ceramic powders, their sintering behavior and mechanical properties. He took a Post-Doc position at the Katholiek Universiteit Leuven (2003-2006) where he focused on the development of non-destructive and in-situ characterization techniques of the sintering behavior of metallic porous materials. In 2006-2007, he was responsible for a new research line on nanostructured particulated materials for magnetic applications at CEIT (Spain). In January 2008, he joined the Group of Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Devices of University Jaume I where he is involved in the development of new concepts for photovoltaic devices and biosensors based on nanoscaled materials, particularly studying the optoelectronic and electrochemical responses of the devices by electrical impedance spectroscopy. He has co-authored more than 30 papers in international journals and has been awarded with a Ramon y Cajal fellowship for 2008-2012.

You are invited to participate in the International Conference on Novel Materials for Energy Conversion and Optoelectronics, to be held in Santa Fe, United States, from 11-12 December 2018.
The scope of the conference covers a broad range of research directions related to novel materials for applications in energy conversion and optoelectronics ranging from photovoltaics and photoelectrochemical and photocatalytic production of solar fuels, to sensing and light emission in electroluminescent devices and lasers. Materials such as halide perovskites, semiconductor quantum dots, multinary metal oxides are at the forefront of research and are promising candidates for producing future breakthroughs in these fields. Particular emphasis is on understanding the relationship between the structural properties of materials and their function in final devices, which is key to fostering further advances in device performance. Consequently, novel theoretical and characterization tools represent topics of keen interest to this conference.
