The International Summer School on Crystal Growth and Advanced Materials for Energy Conversion is focused on theoretical and experimental aspects of growth and characterization of semiconducting, oxide, metallic, organic, biological crystals, PV devices and equipment and advanced materials and technologies dedicated to energy conversion and storage.
A comprehensive series of lectures related with theoretical aspects will be associated with those for methods and techniques for complete characterization of semiconductors, organic materials, oxides and other materials involved in solar conversion. The topic of the Summer School will feature also keynote and contributed lectures on advanced materials for supercapacitors, fuel cells and batteries, including concepts of applied electrochemistry for electrochemical energy conversion/storage.
Senior researchers and professors with good practice will give classes to the Summer School. All lectures will be 90 minutes long. Ph.D students, junior researchers from both, academia and industry are strongly encouraged to participate to Summer School. A poster session related with the main Summer School Topics will take place.


The International Summer School will be jointly organized with ROCAM 2017 conference. Students will have the opportunity to have informal discussions with the school lecturers and scientists involved in the specific research field. Students will have access to the plenary and poster sessions of the conference, planed not during the school lectures. Last, but not least, social events are planned in common with the ROCAM Conference.
