and Your Friends
It is our great pleasure to extend an invitation for you to join us at the 50th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference on June 11-16, 2023 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Chair IEEE PVSC 50
This year’s conference marks a special occasion in PV history, the 50th gathering of the premier scientific and technical conference focused on all areas of photovoltaics. We have chosen Puerto Rico to celebrate a community who has turned to solar to rebuild their energy infrastructure after hurricane Maria in 2017 as we look forward toward a bright future for PV.
We will celebrate this occasion by offering a diverse technical program divided into eleven areas covering the breadth and depth of PV science, manufacturing, reliability, deployment, policy and sustainability. We will have a slate of exciting keynote, plenary and invited speakers sharing up-to-date research summaries and breakthroughs. Our signature Sunday session will be dedicated to tutorials, for students, entry-level professionals as well as for seasoned PV experts looking to expand their knowledge to new areas. The conference’s Exhibits area will welcome companies to showcase their latest developments in characterization, materials and manufacturing. All of these events will be enhanced by ample opportunities for networking to form new collaborations and friendships as well as renew old acquaintances.
Rooms are reserved in the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel and Casino conveniently located across the street from the Convention Center in the heart of ‘distrito T-mobile’. The hotel has all the amenities you want in a conference hotel to allow networking including extra meeting and gathering sites. San Juan is the beating heart of history and culture in Puerto Rico with tropical beaches, historic sites, art museums and more.
Note that the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. United States Federal laws apply, and travelers from outside the US have the same visa and passport requirements that would apply if visiting the mainland United States. As such the committee will work to expedite invitation letters for visa applications when necessary.
The PVSC Organizing Committee is strongly committed to creating an inclusive and respectful conference environment that values and seeks the variety of dimensions that age, race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, socio-economic status, religious beliefs, experiences, perspectives, lifestyles, geographic regions and cultures have to offer.
On behalf of all the dedicated volunteers who comprise the PVSC Organizing, Cherry, and International Committees, we look forward to personally welcoming you to San Juan for the 50th IEEE PVSC!
