Fast upgrades to silicon science and technology through “flash tutorials”

To bring young scientist and engineers up-to-speed, a set of six short tutorials will be organized in the Sunday afternoon preceding the conference. The event is free of charge and open to all interested students and young scientists. The number of attendees is limited to 60, so be quick to reserve your space! 

Registration: The tutorials can be booked during your registration process for SiliconPV / the nPV Workshop

Location: EPFL Lausanne, MED building, room: MED 2 1522
