The 30th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference November 8(Sun) - 13(Fri), 2020
ICC JEJU, Jeju, Republic of Korea

Welcome Message

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 30th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-30). The PVSEC-30 is organized and hosted by the Korea Photovoltaic Society, which will be held at the International Convention Center Jeju (ICC JEJU) in Jeju, Korea from November 8th (Sun) to 13th (Fri), 2020.

Jeju island is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and announced as one of the winners of the ‘New 7 Wonders of Nature.’ Not only does the island offer world-class conference facilities, but it also offers a variety of natural and cultural experiences.

This is the fourth time that Korea has been given the honor to host this prestigious event since it organized the PVSEC-12 in 2001 in Jeju. At PVSEC-30, a large number of eminent experts and delegates will share their valuable academic research, remarkable achievements, and most recent findings. The PVSEC-30 scientific program will propose high-quality scientific sessions that will provide deeper knowledge and new perspectives on the field of the photovoltaic industry. The PVSEC-30 will also provide platforms for PV industry forum, PV value-chain company exhibitions, and PV related international body workshops.

The Organizing Committee is devoting its utmost efforts to prepare a most meaningful and enjoyable conference, and I strongly believe that PVSEC-30 will be a memorable international gathering and bring together hundreds of professionals, scientists, and trainees to discuss the latest advances of photovoltaic science and technology. I look forward to meeting you all at PVSEC-30 in Jeju, Korea!

Sincerely yours,


Prof. Chinho Park
General Chair of PVSEC-30

About PVSEC

About PVSEC

The International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC) was established in 1984 as an opportunity for participants to present and discuss problems concerning solar power generation—specifically, the basic properties of the photovoltaic effect, solar cell materials and processes, solar cell modules and peripherals, and photovoltaic systems, as well as measures for popularizing solar power generation. The aim of the conference was to contribute to developing scholarship in relevant fields (from fundamental understanding to application) and enriching society.

The PVSEC must bring together a wide range of R&D professionals and experts from industry, academia, and public institutions, and through lively discussions, provide an excellent opportunity for participants to consider and devise ways of making academic progress in this field and creating new energy systems for society.

About PVSEC-30

PVSEC is one of the world's top three academic conferences in photovoltaic industry, along with EU PVSEC in Europe and IEEE PVSC in the United State. This is fourth time that Korea has been given the honor to host this prestigious event since it organized the 2015 conference in Busan.
