The 2nd Nanotechnology for the Next Generation High Efficiency Photovoltaics Spring International School & Workshop will be held during 20–24 April 2015 on the Balearic Islands, Spain.
This event continues on the previous successful NEXTGEN NANO PV International Spring School and Workshop held in Cargèse (Corsica, France) in 1-6 April 2013. The main aim is to review the state of the art and existing challenges related to the implementation of new nanotechnology based concepts for solving the main problems in the development of cost efficient and sustainable PV.
Researchers presenting their work at the conference are invited to submit their papers to this special issue of the journal Applied Sciences after the conference and at the latest by 24 July 2015. Submitted papers should be expanded to the size of regular research or review articles. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in the journal Applied Sciences and collected together on this special issue website.
Contributions on related topics but not presented at the conference are also welcome to be included in this special issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
