SuNEC 2013: There is Enough Sun for All

16-Sept-13 - Jointly organized by the Institute of Nanostructured Materials of Italy’s Research Council (CNR) and by Palermo's University Department of Electrical Engineering (Diettcam), the third “SuNEC – Sun New Energy Conference" was held in Santa Flavia, Sicily, on September 10-12, 2013. 

A nice video and photogallery is now online, along with the full Conference Report. Below is a selection of press articles dedicated to the Conference:

Eminent speakers at SuNEC 2013 included Yu A. Baurov (Russian Academy of the Sciences), Wai-Yeung Wong (Hong Kong Baptist University) Antonino S. Aricò (CNR, Italy), Francesco Meneguzzo (CNR, Italy) as well as novelist and thinker Ottavio Cappellani (Catania, Italy).

The list below includes only the presenting Author. The full list of co-Authors and their affiliation are included in the indexed Book of Abstract.
