This conference is focused on measurement science for assessing the durability and service lives of polymers used in photovoltaic applications and will feature technical presentations from industry experts, a poster session, standards discussion, and NIST facility tour. This event will allow participants to hear from and interact with experts representing material suppliers, module manufacturers, testing and certification companies, as well as universities and national laboratories. Attendees will also have an opportunity to engage in open discussions on and contribute recommendations to a road map for incorporating advanced research into consensus standards development efforts.
Who should attend:
A poster session will be held on Thursday morning, Nov. 14. Posters describing advances in lifetime test methods and characterization of PV material performance and durability are welcome. All poster submissions will be reviewed for technical quality and should be free of commercials. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please send a title and short abstract to Joannie Chin at email@example.com by Oct. 15, 2013.
