nanoGe Fall Meeting 2021: a recap

Although we did not meet face to face, this year’s nanoGe Fall Meeting online edition was a success!

With a total of 200 talks, there were 14 symposia on a wide variety of topics such as perovskite and perovskite-inspired materials for solar cells, optical spectroscopy, perovskite emerging materials and phenomena, design of new electrocatalysts or nanocrystal applications.

We also counted with the presence of Michael Graetzel, Choi Kyoung-Shin and Andrey Rogach for the plenary sessions. Opening of Fall Meeting 2021, Michael Graetzel’s session dealt with “The Genesis and Rise of Mesoscopic Photovoltaics and Perovskite Solar Cells”. On October 20th, Choi Kyoung-Shin discussed the latest research on “Understanding the Surface Effects of Ternary Oxide Photoelectrodes on Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting”, and, on the final day of this edition, Andrey Rogach discussed “Perovskite Nanocrystals in Light-Emitting Devices”.

With such a variety of topics and symposia, the 450 participants that attended Fall Meeting 21 were able to choose the talks they preferred to follow. Each day there was a total of six different rooms with all the live content.

Thanks to our sponsors and to Fundació Scito, a variety of prized were given. The ePoster prize winners were Marc Antoine Stoeckel, Yunhua Chen, Jael George Mathew, Mahsa Parvizian, Emre Usman, David Tiede, Alfonsina Abat Amelenan, and Tim Kodalle. As to the Oral contribution, the prizes went to Ward Van der Stam, Janet Macdonald, Osnat Zapata, Sakiru Abiodun, Charlie Greboval, and Felix Lang.

Thank you all for your loyalty and making the effort of attending the online conferences. It has been hard to adjust to crisis times, however we hope you enjoyed sharing ideas and knowledge in this edition and we look forward to seeing you all at nanoGe Fall Meeting 2022 in Barcelona
