Call for Abstracts / Notes for Authors

Abstract Submission Deadline:  June 15, 2020


Welcome to SNEC 14th (2020) International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Conference, the annual solar technology conference & exhibition organized by Shanghai New Energy Industry Association, co-organized by 25 international associations and organizations. The conference will be held on August 7-9, 2020 in Shanghai, China.

It will not only cover all the aspects of photovoltaic technology and manufacturing, including equipments/devices, materials, processes, manufacturing, integration, as well as emerging photovoltaic technologies and applications, but also incorporate topics of “Internet+” smart energy and energy storage. It is an opportunity that you cannot miss to stay up to date on the technology and market, present your results to the community and network with colleagues.

The conference is now accepting abstract submittals for the 2020 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 Jun. 26, 2020. 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 Jun. 21, 2020. 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.

Presentation Materials Submission: 

In order to guarantee the smoothness and order of the meeting progress, oral presentation materials (PowerPoint) are required by July 10, 2020. Any hesitation on the pretext of confidential elements will not be accepted as we assume that all information in a presentation shall be public. SNEC organizing committee hereby promises that all the materials submitted will not be publicized in any way from our source before the conference dates.
