General Information

The international workshop on Crystalline Silicon For Solar Cells (CSSC) is an influential and authoritative scientific and technological weather vane industry event in the international photovoltaic field. So far, it has been successfully held in seven countries, including China, the United States, Germany, France, Japan, Norway and Portugal.

The 12th edition of CSSC will be hosted by Zhejiang University in Hangzhou in China, from May 28th to May 30th, 2024. The CSSC workshop will be the key event for sharing, discussing and understanding the newest developments and upcoming trends in the silicon material and silicon photovoltaics. The focus will be on science and advanced technologies of crystalline silicon materialsfor solar cells. The program will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations in addition to open forum discussions on selected topics.

Call for Papers

The Scientific Committee invites you to submit your latest and best results as an abstract for CSSC-12. Authors of selected abstracts will be encouraged to publish their results in Solar Energy Materials & Solar Cells or Micro and Nanostructures. Authors who wish to pursue this option must send up to two additional pages with complementary results to the abstract, including a brief description and interpretation, for assessment. Text must come with the same format as the abstract, as an additional file.

Submit to your latest research results in science and technology of crystalline silicon related materials for solar cells no later than December 30th.
