Moscow Autumn Perovskite Photovoltaics

International Conference

(MAPPIC-2020)




    Dear Colleagues,

    the Organizing Committee cordially invites you to participate in the 2nd Moscow Autumn Perovskite Photovoltaic International Conference (MAPPIC-2020) that will be held on 26-28 October 2020.

    Last year, we celebrated 10 years of perovskite photovoltaics: 10 years of extremely intense, fast and constantly changing field of materials science. Today, hybrid perovskites are still the hottest topic which accumulates a lot of hope and promises.

    MAPPIC is an annual meeting in Russia organized by Lomonosov Moscow State University as international event for industry, researchers and students working in field of perovskite photovoltaic and hybrid perovskite materials. This year, we extend the scope of the conference to all perspective applications of hybrid perovskites and make a focus on the most painful topics.

Organizing Committee:

  • Prof. Michael Graetzel (EPFL, Switzerland)
  • Prof. Xiaowei Sun (SUSTech, China)
  • Prof. Stepan Kalmykov (MSU, Russia)
  • Prof. Eugene Goodilin (MSU, Russia)
  • Prof. Juan Bisquert (Jaume I University, Spain)
  • Prof. David Mitzi (Duke University, USA)
  • Prof. Andrei Shevelkov (MSU, Russia)
  • Dr. Alexey Tarasov (MSU, Russia)
  • Prof. Aron Walsh (Imperial College London, Great Britain)
  • Prof. Maksym Kovalenko (ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
  • Prof. Yang Shao-Horn (MIT, USA)

Scientific Program:

  • Perovskite Solar Cells: How Close are They to the Market? (PSCs, tandems, scalability)
  • Fundamentals of Physics and Chemistry of Perovskites: Not Only PCE Matters
  • Photon-emission and Detection: Easy to Obtain, Difficult to Sustain
  • With or Without Lead? Toxicity, Stability, New Materials
  • New Paradigm of Computational Materials Science: From DFT and Structural Analysis to Machine Learning and Big Data
  • What else? Photocatalysis, Betavoltaics, Spintronics, Second-harmonic Generation and Other Non-conventional Directions

The “MAPPIC-2020”, therefore, aims not only to highlight the status quo of the field and what is achieved up to date, but instead, raise the most critical questions, make an impact on pain points.

The conference will be held in mixed online/offline format: Russian lecturers and participants will take part offline from MSU, while the lecturers and participants from another cities and countries will connect via Zoom.

All participants will be invited to publish their results in the special peer-reviewed issue "10 years of perovskite photovoltaics: achievements and new challenges" of the journal Mendeleev Communications (Elsevier) [IF = 1.7] with a rapid review processing (less than two weeks). Possible article formats: Opinions (1-2 pages), Communication (2-3 pages), Mini-review (5-7 pages).

The participance in the conference is free of charge!
