Invitation

We cordially invite you to attend the 10th International Summit on Stability of Organic and Perovskite Solar Cells (ISOS-10), which will be hosted by the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST), from October 18 – 20, 2017.  ISOS has been running since 2008 and has rapidly become one of the most attended workshops in the field, bringing together an expert community both from industry and academia. The program includes round table discussions and the limited number of participants creates a unique atmosphere for informal scientific exchange. This year’s program will cover the following topics: degradation of photo-active materials and full devices in the field of organic, hybrid and perovskite solar cells, flexible gas barriers, applications and standards, characterization techniques and few talks from related optoelectronic devices, for example OLEDs or Si PV reliability.

Venue and Accomodation

Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It’s a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. It has numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers dating to circa 4000 B.C. Malta is a great place to visit for sea, sun, culture, attractions and all year round events.
