49th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC)

5-10 June, 2022
Philadelphia, PA

For 60 years, PVSC has been the premier scientific and technical conference focused on all areas of photovoltaics from fundamental science to commercial applications and, increasingly, to deployment, policy, and resources. We continue that tradition by offering a diverse technical program divided into eleven areas and featuring several special and joint technical sessions highlighting our cross cutting synergies. We will have a slate of exciting keynote, plenary and invited speakers giving up-to-date research summaries and breakthroughs.

Philadelphia, PA
5-10 June 2022

A day dedicated to tutorials from leading experts in seminal areas will enable students and scientists joining the field or any participants to expand their knowledge to new areas. Importantly, the conference’s Exhibits area will provide a chance to learn about some of the latest developments in characterization, materials and manufacturing. All of these events will be enhanced by ample opportunities for networking to form new collaborations and friendships as well as renew old acquaintances.

12-17 June, 2022

Honolulu, Hawaii

The 2022 IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits will be organized as a hybrid event with both live sessions on-site in the Hilton Hawaiian Village to enable networking opportunities, and on-demand sessions to allow access to selected talks and panels to those who cannot travel. The five-day event will include: Plenary Session, Technical Sessions, Evening Panels, Short Courses on key VLSI topics, Demo Session for Outstanding Papers, Forum Session, and SSCS / EDS Women in Engineering & Young Professionals events.

IEEE Travel Policy Update

At this time, in line with the advice of health authorities regarding current pandemic risks and a return to in-person meetings and domestic and international travel in many regions, the current IEEE pandemic travel policy is rescinded. This policy is replaced with the following:

1. All IEEE Volunteer travel and associated meetings must adhere to all appropriate guidance from cognizant local public health authorities. Local policies around meetings and travel vary across the globe and continue to evolve.

2. Volunteers engaged in IEEE related travel and in-person activities acknowledge the continuing risk of exposure to COVID-19. Volunteers should understand that IEEE will not indemnify them for any health risk or economic or other loss resulting from exposure to COVID-19 during IEEE activities.

3. IEEE will not reimburse costs associated with mandatory or self-quarantine or isolation associated with IEEE volunteer travel. If there is a risk of quarantine on entering or departing an area, IEEE volunteers should instead plan to participate virtually when possible using IEEE video and teleconferencing tools.

4. IEEE recommends that If you have any questions, you contact your OU staff business solutions manager or OU volunteer leadership.
