Deadline for abstract submission : February 10th, 2017 Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to invite you to participate to the second edition of « Reliability of Solar materials and Systems workshop (RS2) ». This event is organized in Marseille on May 12th, 2017 by the local organizers D. BARAKEL (IM2NP), O. PALAIS (IM2NP) and O. RACCURT (CEA). General information on RS2 Workshop The objective of the workshop is to bring together industrial and scientific actors working on reliability, sustainability and long-term performance of solar photovoltaic systems (PV), concentrated solar photovoltaic systems (CPV), solar thermal systems (ST) and concentrated solar power systems (CSP). The first edition of this workshop was a real opportunity for these three communities to exchange on the common problematic of durability of solar materials and systems. A lot of scientific discussions and international projects were initiated. ANR - the French National Research Agency - supports the workshop, through the ANR Equipex project DURASOL . The workshop is therefore also intended to help implement major research projects through the DURASOL platform. The scientific program will consist of three invited talks plus nine presentations that will each address one of the three main fields: PV/CPV, ST and CSP. Call for abstracts Your abstract should be mailed to : rs2@im2np.fr Deadline of submission : Friday, February 10th, 2017 . Notice of acceptance : Friday, March 10th, 2017. Abstracts will be selected by the Scientific Committee. Registration RS2 Workshop fees : 60 (excl. VAT) including lunch, coffee breaks. Registration will open early February.
