New dates and location announced for DSC-IC 2010- November 1-4, 2010 in Colorado Springs, CO

Professor Michael Graetzel of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, the father of third generation dye-sensitized solar cells, is confirmed as the keynote speaker at the 4th International Conference on the Industrialisation of Dye Solar Cells.

Due to logistical considerations, IntertechPira and lead sponsor Dyesol Limited are changing the dates and location for the 4th International Conference on the Industrialisation of Dye Solar Cells (DSC-IC 2010). The conference will now be held on November 1-4, 2010 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. The program will bring together scientists, engineers, industrialists, investors and others active in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) technologies to discuss the latest innovations and applications and the progress of DSSC commercialization for technology.


Already confirmed to participate in this year's event is Professor Michael Graetzel of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, the father of third generation dye-sensitized solar cells. Other confirmed speakers include Dr. Art Frank, NREL; Dr. Gavin Tulloch, Dyesol Limited; Toby Meyer, Solaronix; Peer Kirsch, Merck; Songyuan Dai, Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China and many others. The program will provide in-depth information on the materials, manufacturing and technology used in creating dye-sensitized solar cells, as well as the outlook for commercialization.

"Last year's event in Japan attracted over 300 industry leaders and we feel that the date change will allow us to accommodate our attendees and exhibitors more comfortably," said Christopher Smith, senior conference producer at IntertechPira. "We believe that the strong partnership with Dyesol, the leading supplier of 3rd generation solar technology, will make this event - one of the first events exclusively on this topic to be held in North America - very successful this year. DSC-IC 2010 will bring together industry experts, manufacturers, researchers, investors, academics and end users making it a must-attend event to learn about this exciting and fast-developing technology and network with the key players of the future."

The conference will feature approximately 30 expert presentations assessing market trends, technical development and application related advances through presentations, question-and-answer sessions and panel discussions. Throughout the conference, there will be a number of hosted luncheons, breaks and receptions, which will be held in and around the exhibit area located outside the main conference room. Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available.

IntertechPira's global B2B magazine +Plastic Electronics (visit www.plusplasticelectronics.com) will also be publishing a special issue on the DSC industry for distribution at the event, which will include advertising and advertorial opportunities.
