1 – 5 September 2008 Feria Valencia
The dates are now set for the 23rd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) at the Feria Valencia Convention and Exhibition Centre in Valencia, Spain. As in the past, next years conference will run all five days while the Exhibition will run the first four days, 1 – 4 September 2008.
The 23rd EU PVSEC has issued a Call for Papers with an outline of the conference program and subject areas along with abstract requirements and review procedures.
Abstract submissions are due by January 23, 2008, and can be submitted by e-mail, online, or, if necessary, by snail mail.
While the Fiero Milano was a beautiful and luxurious exhibition and convention center, the Feria Valencia has been promised to be more compact and practical to maximize time absorbing areas of interest at the Conference, Visual Presentations, and the Exhibition.
Comunitat Valenciana, the Official tourism site of the Region of Valencia, is a resource to jump start your planning for next fall. Valencia looks like an ideal location to plan a pre or post vacation around the 23rd EU PVSEC. Learning Spanish is another option for the industrious.
I hope to learn a bit more Spanish than I did Italian (none) for Milano before visiting Valencia. Why is it that Europeans like to schedule these PV events during US holidays? Labor Day is once again lost. Is this a concerted effort to undermine the few holidays Americans have?
