CPV-16 Cancellation

Due to the increasing global spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, the conference organizers and committees have decided to cancel CPV-16.

As the CPV community is a very close one where everyone is looking forward to meeting each other in person, an online format did not seem to be an adequate substitute.

Nevertheless, we want to give all our authors the opportunity to publish their scientific paper with AIP. We will contact the authors directly with further information.

Next year's conference, CPV-17, is scheduled for April 12-14, 2021 in Miyazaki, Japan. We are very much looking forward to it and hope to see you there!

We wish you all the best – stay safe and healthy!


 

Welcome to CPV-16

CPV-16 is the premier technical conference in the areas of high- and low-concentration PV components, modules, and tracker-based PV systems. The conference was supposed to take place from May 4-6, 2020 near Denver in Golden, Colorado, USA, and to be hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Publication Chair's Message

After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) overseas and in the United States, the Organizing Committee decided not to conduct the 16th International Conference on Concentrator Photovoltaic Systems (CPV-16) in Colorado, May 4-6, 2020.

 

In addition to the personal exchange in the community during the conference, your scientific results were and are meant to be published in the AIP open access conference proceedings database. Even though the event is now cancelled, we want to give you the chance to publish your current work in a special edition of proceedings with AIP.

 

As CPV-16’s Publication Chair, I herewith invite you to submit your paper! The process will remain the same, including the review process followed by the open access publication. To cover the publication costs, a fee of 100 € will need to be charged. I look forward to reading and learning of your latest results even if we cannot meet personally this year!

 

Stay healthy!

 

Maike Wiesenfarth, Publication Chair
