Benidorm, Spain, 28th - 31st May 2018

You are invited to participate in the 10th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics, from 28 to 31 May 2018. For this 10th anniversary of the HOPV conference we will return to Benidorm at the coast of Allicante, Spain where the conference was first held.

In these past ten years hybrid and organic solar cells have advanced enormously in terms of efficiency, lifetime, and technology and have a true promise to become an important source of renewable energy. In addition, they present fascinating opportunities and challenges for scientific research and technological development. [+]

Castellón de la Plana, Spain, 19th - 20th June 2018

You are invited to participate in a two days of intensive training by means of selected lectures and experimental work on different aspects of impedance spectroscopy. The course will introduce the basic concepts and the whole experimental process: from the design of experiments, set-up requirements, to data analysis, with special attention to computer-controlled instrumentation and use of software packages for data fitting and visualization. Specific applications to different energy technologies will be covered including perovskite solar cells, LED, photoelectrochemical fuel production, etc.

You are invited to participate in the  International Conference on Novel Materials for Energy Conversion and Optoelectronics. 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.

Kyōto-shi, Japan, 27th - 29th January 2019

You are invited to participate in the International Conference on Perovskite and Organic Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics (IPEROP19) to be held in Kyoto, Japan from 27th to 29th of January 2019.

Solar energy conversion by low-cost and efficient photovoltaic devices is a steadily increasing its contribution in the global demand of renewable energy. Hybrid and organic solar cells are highly promising power sources due to their significant progress in efficiency and processing technology. A paradigmatic example are Perovskite-based hybrid solar cells that have demonstrated very high performance, reaching the efficiency shown by silicon-based solar cells. In addition, These hybrid solar cells present fascinating opportunities for scientific research and technological development. The main topics of this conference are related to material preparation, modelling and fabrication of hybrid and organic photovoltaic cells, including dye-sensitized solar cells, organic thin film solar cells, quantum dot solar cells, and perovskite solar cells. Building upon success of the previous AP-HOPV conferences, Perovskite and Organic Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics 2019 in Kyoto will provide an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers worldwide to exchange information and discussions on the latest developments in photovoltaics.

València, Spain, 5th - 7th March 2019

You are invited to participate in the International Conference on Interfaces in Organic and Hybrid Thin-Film Optoelectronics hat will be held in Valencia, Spain.

Interfaces play a major role in the function of devices based on multilayers of organic and hybrid materials, such as light-emitting diodes, field-effect transistors and solar cells, as many key optoelectronic processes occur at these regions. Many fundamental questions remain still unanswered, especially regarding what role interfaces play and what factors influence them (e.g. interface structure and formation, evolution over device lifetime), and how these interfacial processes can be controlled and manipulated given the fact that they can significantly affect – if not dominate – device performance.
