HOPV20 Conference Postponed

Due the impact of cororavirus, we have decided that it is necessary to postpone HOPV20, planned for 5th to 8th July 2020 in London, to 2021. We very much hope to see you at HOPV21 in London.

In addition, and to help fill the gap created by the postponement of this and many other conferences, Nanoge/Scito and the HOPV20 organisers have decided to launch a special edition HOPV20 Online Conference, running over 4 days from 25 and 28 May 2020, details of which are here.

If you have any further question, we will be glad to support at HOPV20@nanoge.org

#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.

ePoster Session

Following an environmentally-friendly initiative, HOPV20 adapts to new ways of diffusion and converts traditional Poster Session into an ePoster Session.

All ePosters will be available for viewing online to conference participants. Each ePoster will be presented through a Flash Talk and posted on Twitter in the ePoster Session. In addition, extended discussions and close conversations about the ePosters will take place in different meeting points inside the discussion spaces reserved.


The conference will take place in Senate House, University of London, UK
