International Summer School on Photovoltaics and New Concepts of Quantum Solar Energy Conversion

September 4-11, 2016 in Hirschegg, Austria

We would like to inform you about the upcoming International Summer School on Photovoltaics and New Concepts of Quantum Solar Energy Conversion to be held from September 4-11, 2016 in Hirschegg, Kleinwalsertal, Austria. The school is now open for application until June 1, 2016. The school primarily addresses young postdocs, PhD students,and master students in their final year at university with an interest in photovoltaics and solar energy conversion. Please note that due to the strong interest in our school persons that have already participated cannot be accepted a second time. Invited speakers, all recognized scientists from leading world institutions, will give lectures covering a wide range of topics on the fundamental principles of the conversion of solar energy into chemical and electrical energy as well as the physical and technical challenges. The school will follow the tradition of previous very successful summer schools in 1998, 2001, 2003, 2006, 2008-2015. It is organized to be very interactive and the participants and speakers are requested to present their field of research and themselves in a short oral presentation on the first day of the school.
