‘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 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;
- 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.
