Message from the General Chair

Dear colleagues of solar scientists and engineers,

The 27th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (“PVSEC-27”) will be held in Otsu Japan from the 12 to the 17 in November 2017. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to formally invite you to participate in PVSEC-27, which will be the largest and most comprehensive PV conference in 2017 in the Asia-Pacific region.

PVSEC-27 will provide an excellent platform for the world’s photovoltaic scientists and engineers to showcase and share the latest developments in solar PV technologies. The conference program encompasses the full range of PV topics, including fabrication, characterization and simulation of PV materials, cells, modules and systems, and their reliability. The Conference will feature oral and poster sessions and some special programs. The guest speakers are globally recognized experts in their respective fields.

Otsu which located in Shiga Prefecture is right in the center of Japan with easy access from Osaka and Tokyo. Shiga Prefecture is renowned for Biwako, Japan’s largest lake. It offers the perfect chance to get closer to Japan’s lush mountains and water resources. Biwako is easily accessible from Kansai International Airport and from Kyoto and Osaka. The Lake Biwa Otsu Prince Hotel is located on the shore of Lake Biwa. The Convention Hall “Oumi” is one of the largest convention halls in Japan. This year PVSEC-27 will be held in the best season for sightseeing in Japan. We look forward to seeing you at the PVSEC-27.
