“Dear colleagues,

Due to the COVID-2019 precautions in Turkey and the World, the 2nd International Conference on Photovoltaic Science and Technologies (PVCon2020) has been postponed to 30 November – 2 December 2020. The conference will be held at Middle East Technical University, Culture and Convention Center in Ankara, Turkey.

Abstract applications (oral and poster) will be accepted until September the 30th via the Abstract Submission page (Please note that the abstracts submitted before the postponement of the conference have already been considered for review; so, there is no requisite to re-submit).

We organized the first PVCon in July 2018. You can reach the Highlights Document and Full-length Proceedings (in IEEE-Xplore) of PVCon2018 through the conference website: Also, selected and -reviewed articles of the researches presented in the conference are published in PVCon2018 Special Issue of the high impact journal Renewable Energy (

As in PVCon2018, we will be hosting again international and national invited speakers, researchers, representatives of governmental bodies, and private sector. The participants will share the recent researches and developments of the science and technology about solar energy and solar PV, contributing to the development of the related R/D and infrastructure, and in the meantime establishing a fruitful platform of national and international collaborations.

A special workshop on “PV Module Technologies” and the world’s 1st Special Workshop on “EXtremePV” will also be organized within the conference program.

We take this opportunity to thank sincerely in advance of PVCon2020 to all the participants, to the governmental and private sector representatives, to national and international governmental and private organizations supporting us, and to state our best wishes for the success of the second conference like the first one.
