Exceptional focus on most recent and exciting industrial and scientific developments worldwide
The International workshop on CIGS thin-film photovoltaic solar cell technology (IW-CIGSTech 10) will celebrate its 10th anniversary on May 23/24, 2019 in Paris. It will bring, in a condensed two-day format, an exceptional focus on most recent and exciting industrial and scientific developments worldwide. IW-CIGSTech 10 will be hosted at the Institut Photovoltaïque d'Île de France (IPVF) and Ecole Polytechnique. The two German research institutes Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research, ZSW) and Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) are co-organizers of the workshop. (Information and Registration: https://www.iw-cigstech.org).
For 10 years, the workshop has been a unique forum which paved the way of the present take-off of CIGS PV technologies and anticipates future innovative developments (light-weight flexible, high efficiencies, tandem cells). Key worldwide industrial players (Solar Frontier, Solibro Hi-Tech, Avancis, MiaSolé Hi-Tech, NICE Solar Energy, Global Solar, Von Ardenne…) and research institutes (ZSW, EMPA, HZB, IPVF, IMEC, Solliance, Jülich, NREL, AIST, Universities of Delaware, Uppsala, Luxembourg, Nantes…) confirmed their contributions to the program.
IW-CIGSTech 10 will consist of invited talks, discussions and poster presentations. Young scientists and student are welcome. Abstracts for visual presentations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a networking event in downtown Paris on the evening of May 23rd.
