The 23rd Sde Boker Symposium on Solar Electricity Production 


We are sorry to have to announce the further POSTPONEMENT 23rd Sede Boqer Symposium on Solar Electricity Production, previously scheduled for February 2021. While taking into account the need to monitor national and international instructions on holding academic conferences, we hope that by the following February 2022, we will be allowed to gather in person.  

It has been our experience that the opportunity to meet scientists of international caliber and one another under the relaxed and open skies of Sede Boqer has been an incalculable contribution to the advancement of scientific ideas and collaborations. 

As always, we plan on enjoying the wisdom and experience of scientific leaders in their respective fields as our Keynote Speakers.  The opportunity to not only hear their lectures first-hand, but also meet with them personally during the intermissions and meals is one of the advantages of our conference. 

The Sede Boqer symposia are unusual in that they combine presentations on all methods of solar energy conversion to electricity (photovoltaic, solar-thermal, etc.) in a single conference, usually without parallel sessions. These symposia are organized by the Ben-Gurion National Solar Energy Center, of the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research, on Ben-Gurion University's Sede Boqer campus. 

Presentations are made on a wide range of subjects, including: solar energy conversion systems, optics of solar systems, models of systems and components, photovoltaic materials and devices, concentrated solar energy, measurements and characterization, solar thermal systems, thermoelectricity, electricity and heat storage, solar applications.
