15th Sede Boqer symposium on solar electricity production 27-29.OCT.2008

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research



OCTOBER 27-29, 2008

We are pleased to announce the fifteenth symposium in this important series, which will take place at the Ben-Gurion National Solar Energy Center, Sede Boqer, Israel. The purpose of these symposia is to provide a forum where scientists, industry and government planners can indulge in informed and up-to-date discussion of the relative advantages of various forms of solar power generation, and where each of the technologies stands.

Our first confirmed Keynote speaker is:
Professor James Barber
Imperial College London
“If the leaf can do it, we can do it”

The Sede Boqer symposia combine solar-thermal and photovoltaic presentations in a single conference without parallel sessions. In this way, specialists from both disciplines are able to find out, at first hand, what is happening ‘on the other side of the fence’. To this end, each 10-minute presentation should include 2 minutes at the start devoted to explaining the significance of the reported research in a language that ‘the other side’ will be able to appreciate.

Looking forward to a lively and stimulating meeting, and assuring you of our traditional warm welcome at Sede Boqer.

Yours sincerely, on behalf of the symposium committee,

David Faiman.

    The 15th Sede Boqer Symposium will probably have no papers of specific interest to architects because building integrated PV is not a main activity of Israeli architects. However, perhaps, some of the French-Israeli Workshop discussions may involve BIPV. It is still too soon to know.
    Thank you for your interest.
