Chair IEEE PVSC 48
It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the international 2021 IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference! The PVSC-48 will be held June 20-25, 2021. This year's conference will be presented in a fully virtual format. Please see additional information to the right.

PVSC-48’s Technical Program will be divided into 12 areas covering cutting-edge developments in science and engineering of photovoltaics, ranging from fundamentals to applications, with an emphasis on material science, devices, systems, solar resources and policy related matters. On behalf of the Technical Program Committee, we are honored to invite you to submit an abstract on your latest achievements in photovoltaic (PV) research, development, and applications to PVSC-48. PVSC-48 aims to be a highly interactive venue for both seasoned PV experts as well as entry-level professionals and students. The conference provides a unique opportunity to share and discuss PV-related developments in a timely and influential forum. Please contribute to the PVSC's tradition as a premier international conference on the science and technology that can contribute toward a world powered largely by PV systems.

Besides the outstanding Technical Program, PVSC-48 continues its important educational mission by offering a strong Tutorial Program, taught by leading PV specialists. These courses are offered to all of our attendees in order to learn about diverse areas in photovoltaics to enhance, update and broaden their knowledge. The Exhibition area will showcase the latest developments in PV characterization and manufacturing equipment, bringing scientists and engineers together with leading PV industries and organizations.

We hope that you will enjoy the inspiring experience of being part of one of the world’s greatest conferences dedicated to the science and technology of photovoltaics. Naturally, the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference welcomes individuals from all backgrounds and nationalities to participate and contribute in a spirit of rational, open inquiry.

On behalf of the Organizing, Cherry, and International Committees, we look forward to welcoming you to the Virtual PVSC-48 Conference!

PVSC 48 is a Virtual Conference!

As many places still have travel restrictions and for the safety of our attendees, the IEEE-PVSC 48 has changed into a fully virtual conference. The program committee is working on this year’s program, but we are happy to share that many elements of the in-person conference will be made available during the virtual conference this year. You will be able to interact with attendees, peruse the posters, visit exhibition booths and listen to the various presentations. Stay tuned for more information.
