EU PVSEC News and Happy Holidays!

23rd and 24th EU PVSEC (European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition) Conference Manuscripts available online.
25th EU PVSEC and WCPEC-5 Call for Papers Open!

91013-24th_Proceedings_Umschlag.indd In a December EU PVSEC Newsletter, WIP-Renewable Energies provided an update on the combined 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition and 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC-5).

As I tweeted last week:

WIP: All Conference Manuscripts presented at the 23rd and 24th EU PVSEC available online now! #PV #Solar Ed: Cool deal!

I was excited by the immediate availability of 23rd and the 24th EU PVSEC scientific papers for download at EU PVSEC Proceedings. The papers are searchable by subject, authors, institutions, keywords, or events, and a unique digital identifier (DOI code) enables clear citability online. However, I missed the part where each paper costs €10! This per paper pricing makes the 23rd and 24th EU PVSEC Conference Proceedings CD-ROMs seem like a much better deal.

I’ve found most, if not all, paper authors are very happy to share their work when contacted. Many of the papers are available online including Fraunhofer ISE (Fraunhofer-Instituts für Solare Energiesysteme) EU PVSEC Conference Papers since 2007, for example.

91105 - 25th EU PVSEC - First Call for Papers-NEW DESIGN - ohne chairmans message.indd Also, please remember the 25th EU PVSEC and WCPEC-5 Call for Papers is open and abstracts are due by January 30, 2010. I am again thinking about submitting an abstract for the world conference from September 6-10, 2010, in Valencia, Spain. I would be very happy with a poster presentation since I may not be quite ready for an oral presentation.
