‘Lithium & Beyond’ Theme in Boston in April

The Knowledge Foundation is seeking abstracts for technical papers for its Next Generation Batteries conference, being held in Boston April 23-24.

“Breakthroughs in new battery chemistries, novel electrode and electrolyte materials, system integration for a vast array of mobile, portable and stationary applications, from micro medical devices to high-energy/high-power automotive, have paved the roadmap for an emerging market with unlimited potential,” the organization says.

The deadline for submitting technical abstracts for the April conference in Boston is December 12.

The theme of the conference is Application-Driven Development of New Battery Chemistries & System Designs – Lithium & Beyond.

Program topics include

  • new chemistries and materials to increase energy/power and reduce cost;
  • lithium versus non-lithium: How much power and energy is enough?
  • the OEM perspective – the application-driven development of novel battery systems-by-design;
  • novel materials for battery architectures: graphene and silicon, magnesium and zinc, manganese and vanadium;
  • lithium air and lithium oxygen;
  • nanomaterials;
  • flow batteries;
  • thin film batteries;
  • highly flexible printed and paper batteries;
  • from novel materials and components to systems architecture and integration;
  • meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power and energy, cost and safety;
  • super-, ultra-, and pseudo-capacitors in hybrid battery devices; and
  • safety, reliability and performance.

“Will lithium-ion batteries deliver on the promises of the power, energy, cost and safety in commercially available energy storage systems?” the Foundation asks.

“Or maybe the future lays somewhere beyond lithium-based chemistries?”

Help determine the answers. The deadline for submitting abstracts is December 12.
