SuNEC 2014 - Sun New Energy Conference and Summer School

Sicily, 8-11 September 2014

Dear Colleague,

Do not further hesitate to register for the 4th edition of the SuNEC Sun New Energy Conference and Summer School to be held in Sicily, September 8-11, 2014. 

Eminent speakers at SuNEC 2014 include Yi-Jun Xu (Fuzhou University), Haoshen Zhou (AIST), Ranjit Koodali (University of South Dakota), Jesper Jacobsson (Uppsala University) and Francesco Meneguzzo (CNR).

A two-day Summer School focusing on practical applications complements the scientific program.

The scientific program -- whose Call for Abstracts is now open -- will feature both Oral and Poster presentation, which will demonstrate the impact of the advances in solar energy science and technology, highlighting exciting innovations in different fields of solar science. Wiley's open access journal Energy Science & Engineering will be the conference official publications, accepting manuscripts for peer-review originating from the Conference.

Hopefully, the Conference will provide a welcome opportunity to enjoy world-class science, learning and culture in the nice climate of Sicily's early September.

We look forward to meeting you in Sicily in 2014,

Mario Pagliaro and Leonardo Palmisano
Chairman and Co-Chairman of SuNEC 2014
