WELCOME TO THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON "Solar Energy for World Peace"
which will take place in Istanbul Convention Center on the dates of 17-18-19 of August 2013.
Decorated with most prominent scientists (among them 4 Nobel prized
colleagues) working in the field of solar energy problems, materials and devices, this international meeting will bring the experts together with the scientists of the world, especially from Asia, Middle East, North Africa and Sub Saharan Africa, where energy autonomy is of crucial importance for future peace and democracy.
As much as nuclear energy and fossil fuels are associated with catastrophes, wars and power politics, as much solar energy is correlated with a peaceful, clean and sustainable future. Human society needs decentralized solar energy for realization of global democratization via energy autonomy.
With this motivation in mind, the conference will be scientific and technical. No political talks will be scheduled except possible opening statements. If outstanding scientists exchange knowledge and ideas on "how to utilize solar energy on our planet" we can move things in a positive direction.
We are looking to welcome you in this exciting and beautiful conference and venue.
