CPV-14 - Open Call for Proposals

Apply for chairing and organizing the International CPV-14 Conference in 2018!

The International CPV-x conference (ICPV-x) series was initiated in 2001. The next in the series, CPV-12, will be chaired by Dr. Andreas Bett during April 25th-27th, 2016 in Freiburg, Germany and CPV-13 will be chaired by Prof. Karin Hinzer in 2017 in Ottawa, Canada.

The aim of the conference series is to provide a platform for high-level scientific contributions in the field of CPV technology. Specifically, student participation is encouraged and new ideas, new technologies and new concepts are presented. Therefore, the conference has been organized as non-profit: fees are kept as low as possible through sponsorship from the CPV industry. Traditionally, these conferences have been organized by scientists on a volunteer basis, strongly assisted by the experienced professional conference organizer PSE. More information about the spirit of this conference can be found in the Guidelines of the International CPV Conference at:

We are now calling for volunteers who are willing to take the honor and responsibility of a Conference Chair and to host the next International CPV-14 Conference during spring time in 2018. As the host, the Conference Chair leads the organization of the conference, attracting the attention of the international PV community and – if desired – policy makers and financiers. For more details, please review the Guidelines of the Conference. If you are interested, please send your proposal to:
