CECAM Conference: "Energy from the Sun: Computational Chemists and Physicists Take up the Challenge"
Chia Laguna Resort, Cagliari, Italy
The goal of this CECAM conference is to bring together computational chemists, physicists, and materials scientists who are addressing the problem of solar energy conversion and storage, from different perspectives. The focus will be on novel materials as well as on fundamental physical and chemical processes that control solar energy harnessing. Areas of interest include photovoltaics, photo chemistry, photocatalysis, and solar to thermal conversion.
Both methodological developments and applications to real materials will be covered, to promote the interactions between different scientific communities. Keynote talks by leading experimentalists in the field of energy sources will help identify the most challenging issues in the design of novel materials and processes.
The conference will consist of plenary and invited talks as well as parallel sessions for contributed oral presentations, and one poster session. Some invited presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts.
The conference registration fee is 200 EUR.
