European Society for Quantum Solar Energy Conversion

Summary of the General Assembly

The General Assembly took place on March 16, 2000, 20:30 at the Hotel Antares in Wolkenstein (Südtirol, Italy) during the Quantsol 2000 workshop.
After opening of the General Assembly by Prof. Tjeerd Schaafsma, a short review over the activities in the past year was given by Christian Königstein. In March 1999 a very successful 11 th Workshop on Quantum Solar Energy Conversion "QUANTSOL '99" was held in Wildhaus, Switzerland. The Workshop with about 35 participants was organized by Jens Gobrecht. The on-line proceedings are available on this home-page. Afterwards, a short overview over future activities was given:
The 2nd European Summer school on Solar Energy is planed to be organized by Mary Archer in the U.K. in 2001.
The 13th Winterworkshop will be organized by Prof. Serdar Sariciftci (Uni Linz). It was agreed (by majority vote) that the organizers of the workshop can decide wether or not a participation fee will be imposed, provided that a higher fee will have to be paid by non-members.
After the activities overview, Christian Königstein (who replaced Hubert Cachet) presented the financial situation which is still healthy. Then, according to our statutes, the present Executive Board was released.

The next point on the agenda was to fix the annual membership fee. It was agreed (by majority vote) to fix the membership fees for full members to 20,- Euros and the reduced membership fee (for students etc.) has been fixed to 10,- Euros. Furthermore, it was agreed that members who are not able to pay their membership fess can apply for exemption. The decision will then be taken by the President of the Society.

The session was closed by Tjeerd Schaafsma at 22:00 hours.
