Please join us for the 2018 Li-SM3 Conference April 25-26, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. The conference will bring together leading research scientists and engineers to discuss progress, challenges and opportunities in lithium sulfur battery research. The Conference follows the successful Li-SM3 conference in London in April 2017. The event will begin with an introduction of lithium sulfur chemistry, progress in the last year and highlights of the key challenges, followed by dedicated sessions on the four topics below, a poster session and dinner.
Session topics will include:
- Mechanisms: Discussions on how and why lithium sulfur operates, the fundamental issues that remain to be solved and promising approaches to solving them.
- Modelling: How the lithium sulfur chemistry can be modeled at the atomistic and continuum levels and what insights this gives us into cell operation and control.
- Materials: New materials for anode, electrolyte and cathode that advance lithium sulfur battery chemistry at the research cell and commercial battery levels.
- Applications: The status of applications for lithium sulfur batteries in flight, marine and land-based systems and the performance metrics that will make them competitive.
