Solar energy experts converge on Sydney
The 17th International Conference on Photochemical Conversion and Storage of Solar Energy (IPS17) is being hosted for the first time in Sydney, Australia, from the 27th July to 1st August, 2008.
Attended by over 350 delegates from countries including America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, the conference is a united effort by the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Functional Nanomaterials, Centre of Excellence for Photovoltaics and Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials.
Major issues to be discussed at this years conference include:
- photoinduced electron and energy transfer;
- solar hydrogen;
- biomimetic systems;
- molecular and nanostructured solar cells;
- photocatalysis and environmental chemistry;
- photosynthesis and hydrogenase; and
- photoelectrochemistry and new materials.
This biennial conference series represents a premier gathering of leading scientists from research institutions, universities, and industry, working on photochemical energy conversion, clean energy generation and storage and environmental applications, which continue to be fields of major international academic and commercial interest.
Current international concerns with global warming and intense efforts
dedicated to the search for renewable energy sources make IPS17 a timely
event, which will contribute to addressing the issues and developing
effective long-term action on climate change. IPS17 captures scientific
progress and challenges as well as the visions for advancing solar
technologies in the new millennium.
IPS17 is the first International Conference on Photochemical Conversion and Storage of Solar Energy to be held in the southern hemisphere.
