KAUST Research Conference: Sustainable Energy Materials and Technologies for a Low Carbon Future

Solar Photovoltaic holds a critical role in the transition to a low-carbon economy. An important challenge is the coupling of new materials and technologies with sustainable methods of energy storage.

The goal of this conference is to bring the solar fuel and PV communities together to discuss the latest impacts and scientific challenges, as well as to explore synergies and opportunities to move the technology forward. Machine Learning/Artificial Leaning topics will also be a key focus of the event to facilitate potential collaborations and spearhead development.

The technical program will be held from Monday, March 20 to Wednesday, March 22, 2023. The conference program will also present an opportunity for Ph.D. students and postdocs to present their research work in a poster presentation on the evening of Monday, March 20, 2023 in the University Library.

Conference Chairs: Professors Martin Heeney, Thomas Anthopoulos and Xu Lu.

On-campus students, researchers, and staff are required to sign up in advance here.
