#HOPV20 Presentation

You are invited to participate in the 12th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics, from the 5th to the 8th of July 2020. For first time, the HOPV conference will be held in London, U.K., located centrally and close to many of London’s key sights and entertainment.

In these past ten years hybrid and organic solar cells have shown remarkable advances in terms of efficiency, lifetime, and processability, and are already finding initial commercial application. As such, they present both fascinating opportunities and challenges for scientific research and technological development. The main topics of this conference are the development, function and modeling of materials and devices for hybrid and organic solar cells, including perovskite solar cells, organic solar cells, quantum dot solar cells, and dye-sensitized solar cells, together with their integration into complimentary devices such as photoelectrochemical water splitting. Building upon success of the previous HOPV conferences, the conference will provide an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers around the world to discuss the latest developments in hybrid and organic photovoltaics.

The conference will be led by world leading invited speakers covering a broad range of the latest scientific advances in morning plenary sessions, and afternoon parallel sessions. The conference encourages presentation of oral as well as poster contributions from scientists from all over the world, which will be presented in four parallel sessions running in the afternoons. Please submit your abstracts before the deadline, which is strict. Special attention will be given to the poster sessions to enable vibrant discussion.
