Silicon for the Chemical and Solar Industry XII
June 23 - 26, 2014
The aim of Silicon for the Chemical and Solar Industry XII is to discuss Silicon Process Technology, Silicon Quality Assessment and Performance in the Subsequent Chemical Reactions. Resource, energy and environmental issues are also important. The different processes from quartz to metallurgical and solar grade silicon, silicones or electronic silicon are strongly linked and a sustainable process is dependent on a thorough understanding of the total process. A recent development is production of solar grade silicon directly by metallurgical routes. Silicon producers as well as users and academia will attend.
Silicon for the Chemical and Solar Industry XII is focused on silicon production and the primary chemical processes. Organosilicon chemistry in general is not a topic. The meeting is by invitation only. Companies are invited to nominate graduate students to encourage recruitment to the industry. Graduate students may apply for a reduced fee.
Proceedings will be prepared ahead of time and given to the participants on arrival. Earlier volumes can be ordered from the Secretariat.
The Central Part of Norway with the City of Trondheim is chosen as the Conference location this time. There are over 30 direct flights a day between Oslo and Trondheim and 20 direct flights from the major cities of Europe.
The Meeting as well as accommodation will be at Rica Nidelven Hotel, located by the beautiful River Nidelven in the harbour Trondheim.
It takes 30 min. to get to the hotel from the Trondheim Airport, Værnes by Airline Coach (Flybuss) or by taxi.
Registration, reception followed by Welcome Dinner will take place at Hotel's Restaurant on Monday, June 23rd from 18.00. The lectures will start on Tuesday morning, June 24th and proceed to Thursday noon, June 26th.
The participants will be transported to Trondheim Airport Værnes by bus after lunch at 12.30 on Thursday, June 26th. Arrival to Trondheim Airport is 13.00 in order to connect to major cities in Europe.
Transport expenses at the time other than the one indicated above shall be covered by the participants on individual basis.

The meeting fee includes reception and Welcome Dinner on Monday, June 23d, an excursion on the Trondheimfjord on Tuesday, June 24th, Conference Dinner on Wednesday, June 25th, Conference Proccedings, buss transportation to Trondheim Airport Værnes on Thursday, June 26th.
Silicon for the Chemical and Solar Industry XII in Trondheim will last two and a half days / (three nights).
Lectures will be presented in the fields:
- Silicon Production (Raw materials, Process, Refining, Casting and Milling).
- Solar Grade Silicon.
- Metallurgical and Chemical Route to the Production of Solar Grade Silicon.
- Product Characterization.Reactions, Catalysis, Mechanism by Production of Primary Products as: - Methylchlorosilanes, Trichlorosilane, Silicon Tetrachloride, Ethylchlorosilanes, Alkoxysilanes, other Silanes
- Environmental Issues and Safety.
The Proceedings have already become the reference literature for the industry and the scientific community are registered in Chemical Abstracts. The high scientific and technical standard of the contributions will be upheld. Quantitative information should be emphasized.
A poster session is also planned.
All accepted oral and poster papers will be included in the Proceedings, which will be printed before the Meeting.
Your ideas and proposals for papers are highly appreciated and shall be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The main social event is a excursion to the Fosen Peninsula located on the Trondheim fjord, in the afternoon on Tuesday, June 25th. With an express boat you will cruise out the Trondheim fjord, an important waterway in the Viking era. Sailing past beautiful islands and some of Norway's best agricultural areas, you will enjoy your lunch and in one hour end up at the Fosen peninsula or more precisely the Brekkstad township.
You will take a "Historical tour" to Austrått Castle dated 1656 and to a huge gun installation from WW II going 5 levels down into the ground. Your will be acquainted with the coastal culture and taste a light seafood meal right on a local pier. You will be back in Trondheim for dinner.
