Call for Abstracts / Notes for Authors

Abstract Submission Deadline:  Jan. 31, 2022


Welcome to SNEC 16th (2022) International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Conference & Exhibition organized by Shanghai New Energy Industry Association, co-organized by 25 international associations and organizations. The conference will be held on May 23-25, 2022 in Shanghai, China.

This forum covers all aspects of the photovoltaic industry, mainly focusing on the topics of PV Cells, PV Modules and Technique, PV System and Grid Connected Technology, Equipment and Manufacturing Automation, Policy and Markets, Industry Standards and Testing Certification, as well as Novel PV Concepts and Energy Storage Technology. The conference will continue the theme of "Energy Interconnection" smart energy aiming to promote the development of the industry and promote the overall development of photovoltaic technology and exchange and cooperation at home and abroad.

The conference is now accepting abstract submittals for the 2022 program. Authors wishing to submit a proposal(s) should read the following instructions carefully:
Notes for Authors: 

  • Prospective authors are requested to submit a short abstract of 200-250 words online for consideration by the program committee by Jan. 31, 2022. The abstract must clearly describe the nature, scope, content, organization, key points and significance of the proposed presentation. Be sure that you provide the following information:

(1) Title of Presentation
(2) Speaker/Presenter's 
short biography of 50-100 words plus a portrait photo
(3) Full Contact Information
(4) Topic Category

  • Please also submit an extended abstract in Word Document (up to 2 pages, including figures and tables) at the designated section, for the abstract reviewers to better assess the technical content and quality of the abstract.
  • Presentations are to be original, non-commercial in that they focus on the technical merits of a design, a method, a structure, a material or a process rather than on the individual company’s product benefits or sales pitches. All abstracts will be evaluated on the strength of the abstract submitted, including content matter, market trend and relevance of the material.
  • Selected speakers will be notified in writing via email no later than Feb. 21, 2022. Speakers must register for the conference at the speaker registration rate and will be asked to prepare and submit PowerPoint presentation slides in advance of the Conference.
