34th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference
United States, Philadelphia
June 12, 2009 - June 7, 2009
the mission of the Photovoltaic Specialists Conference has been to
present groundbreaking research papers on all aspects of PV-relevant
materials, devices, systems and applications. We once again expect to
present a very strong Technical Program that will encompass nine
programmatic areas covering topics from novel materials and devices,
thin-film cells made from CIGS and CdTe and emerging semiconductors,
crystalline and amorphous silicon, III-V cells, concentrator devices
and systems, and module and system experience including reliability
The Technical Program will be complemented by six tutorials to be presented on Sunday, June 7. These tutorials will be taught by experts in their fields and will be valuable to newcomers to photovoltaics, as well as to seasoned veterans who wish to learn about recent trends. We also expect that the conference Exhibition will be substantially larger than in recent years because of the greatly increased level of interest in photovoltaics in the USA.
We are planning a more vigorous Auxiliary Program, to include daily meetings, seminars, and panel discussions in topics beyond the scope of the Technical Program. We hope that this Auxiliary Program will attract many people to the conference who may not normally attend the Technical Program.
We expect that the increased interest in the field of photovoltaics will lead to greatly increased attendance. The hotel will maintain our group rate and room block for a limited time—so we urge you to register for the meeting, as well as to make your hotel reservation, well ahead of the deadline.
