Organic and hybrid photovoltaics (e.g. perovskites) have the potential for lower cost solar electricity as well as numerous new applications, where product low weight, flexibility, different forms and colours would be an advantage. Currently the main bottle neck for commercialization is durability. The International Summit on Organic and Hybrid Photovoltaics Stability (ISOS) has been running since 2008 and has become one of the most attended workshops in the field, bringing together an expert community both from industry and academia.

ISOS 2018 is the 11th International Summit on Organic and Hybrid Photovoltaics Stability (ISOS), which is one of the most influential conference series in the field of solar cell durability. This year ISOS will take place in the beautiful city of Suzhou, China, from 21st Oct to 25th Oct 2018. Touring the wonderful ancient water towns in the vicinity or lingering in the exquisite classical gardens in the downtown area, you will truly know the charm of a 'paradise on earth'. This will be the first ISOS meeting held in Asia, which timely coincides with large development of solar cells in China.

Following the previous successful meetings, this year ISOS will cover all aspects of OPV and perovskite stability from degradation mechanisms to stable device architectures. Strong focus will be on industrial requirements and how this can be met by the research community. The program includes invited and contributed talks as well as round table discussions with academic and industrial researchers. At least half a day will be fully dedicated to industry and applications.

Previous meetings took place in: Colorado (USA) 2008, Amsterdam (The Netherlands) 2009, Roskilde (Denmark) 2010, Colorado (USA) 2011, Eindhoven (The Netherlands) 2012, Chambery (France) 2013, Barcelona (Spain) 2014, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) 2015, Freiburg (Germany) 2016, MCAST (Malta) 2017.
