Invitation to the 5th SFSC

On behalf of the symposium chairs, Prof. Licheng Sun (Dalian University of Technology, China and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden) and Prof. Can Li (Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences), we sincerely invite you to attend the 5th International Symposium on Solar Fuels and Solar Cells (5th SFSC) in Dalian, China, on October 11-14, 2016. This symposium will cover topics of photocatalysis for solar fuels, materials for solar cells, and fundamental understanding of solar energy conversion processes.

Artificial photosynthesis has attracted much attention during the past years as one of the promising technologies for solving the global environmental and even climate problems that may threaten sustainability of human beings caused by the exhaustion of fossil fules and carbon resources along with the gradual increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for international academics, researchers, scientists, and students to exchange and share their experiences, ideas, and research results in the development of solar fuels and solar cells, to discuss the present situation and the future prospect of artificial photosynthesis. We believe that the 5th SFSC will surely provide a significant opportunity to contribute to the development of the future of this research field.

The conference is a biennial symposium co-organized by Dalian University of Technology (DUT) and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) since 2008. Every two years we invite active researchers and students in the field of solar fuels and solar cells to Dalian to meet and discuss the recent scientific achievements. So far, four symposia were successfully held and more than 1100 people from 15 countries have participant in these great events. We have confidence to make the 5th SFSC as a high standard international scientific forum in Dalian this year as well.

We feel that it is going to be our great honor and pleasure to have you participating in this symposium and to share your research results related to solar cells and solar fuels. For more information, please contact the Secretary General of the organizing committee, Prof. Fei Li, at sfsc@dlut.edu.cn or visit our symposium website at http://sfsc.dlut.edu.cn . We are looking forward to your participation.
