A word from the Chair

Nigel Mason

It is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the PVSAT-14 Conference and Exhibition to be held at Imperial College London (ICL) 18-20 April 2018. The organising committee appreciate the feedback we received from our successful PVSAT-13 event in Bangor that we are using to ensure that ICL will be equally successful and meet everyone’s requirements. Planning has been underway for some months now and we are confident that we have a great venue for our event.

We are working on a great line-up of guest speakers that will be added to this website as they confirm their participation. However, it is also our contributory speakers and poster presenters that are central to the success of our event and our Call for Abstracts is now open so please ensure your contributions are submitted before the deadline of 21 Dec 2017. We will notify all corresponding authors by 01 Feb 2018.

SuperGen Supersolar will once again be running a 1-day workshop on the day before PVSAT-14 for early stage researchers and PhD students.............
