Ladies and Gentlemen
 
It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 10th International
Conference on Photochemical Conversion and Storage of Solar Energy to be held
in the Interlaken Conference Centre, Switzerland, from July 24-29, 1994.
 
IPS conferences are held every two years with the aim of outlining the latest
developments in the field of photochemical conversion and storage of solar
energy. This IPS conference will cover the following areas:
 
* Photoinduced electron transfer processes;
* Photocatalysis in heterogeneous and homogeneous systems;
* Photoelectrochemistry;
* Photosynthesis in biological and biomimetic systems;
 
* Quantum chemical studies of molecules on surfaces under the influence of
 light;
  (which will be a challenge for computational chemists to contribute)
 
* Thermodynamic aspects of quantum solar energy conversion;
* Photochemistry at elevated temperatures: quantum processes?;
* Environmental applications of photocatalytic systems;
* Materials for photoenergy conversion and photochemical engineering.
 
Two lectures concern solar energy applications and solar energy research in
Switzerland.
 
I look forward to seeing you in Interlaken in July 1994.
 
                                            Gion Calzaferri, Chairman of IPS-
