You are invited to participate in the Asia-Pacific International Conference on Perovskite, Organic Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics to be held in Kyoto, Japan from 28th 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.  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 conference, this Conference will provide an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers worldwide to exchange information and discussions on the latest developments in photovoltaics.
