Introduction

The College is intended to provide researchers from developing nations, and in particular Latin America and the Caribbean, with a scientific understanding of photovoltaic systems, recent scientific achievements in nanotechnology and plasmonics for the enhancement of the efficiency of solar cells and global tendencies towards efficient energy consumption and the implementation of smart grids.

There will be poster session, for more information about this please send an e-mail to: Angela.Guzman@creol.ucf.edu

Airport, arrival and local transportation

The closest major airport serving Tuxtla Gutiérrez is the Ángel Albino Corzo Airport. It is a very small airport, after you get your luggage the road and taxi stand are just a few steps ahead. There are four taxi companies, they have names of colors: Azul (blue), Naranja (orange), Rojo (red), and Verde (green). The ride to the hotel zone is about 300 pesos. The airport is 50 km away from the hotel zone. Normally it is a 45 minutes drive from the airport to the hotel. The airport's taxis give official receipt, but you must ask for it.

Inside Tuxtla, the price of a taxi ride is approximately $3.00 dollars or $40 pesos.

For back to the airport you can call "Taxis Azules" whose local phone number is 61 45246 or celphone number is (044) 961 1107321 (omitting the 044 when dialing from a cell).

Directors

María Luisa Calvo, Universidad Complutense (Madrid, Spain)
Ángela M. Guzman, University of Central Florida (Orlando, USA)

Participation

The workshop is open to researchers and students from all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO, or IAEA. Due to budget limitations, every effort should be made by candidates to secure either total or partial support for their expenses. However, funds are available exclusively for a limited number of participants who are nationals of, and working in, countries from Latin America and the Caribbean. Participants are required to take part in all aspects of this activity for its entire duration. There is no registration fee.

As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the participants should be borne by the home institution. Every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fare (or at least half-fare). However, limited funds are available for some participants who are nationals of, and working in, a developing country. Such support is available only for those who attend the entire activity. Registration is free-of-charge for all attendees. The method for selecting participants who will recived support is by chronological order according to the date of submission of the request.
