2018 Li-SM3 Conference
The 2018 Li-SM3 Conference will be held Wednesday, April 25, through Thursday April 26, 2018, in Chicago. The conference will bring together leading research scientists and engineers to discuss progress, challenges and opportunities in lithium sulfur battery research.
Pre-conference activities take place on Tuesday, April 24, the day prior to the conference. Activities include networking opportunities and presentations at the University of Illinois at Chicago by Argonne and university staff. Tours include a microgrid and solar installation and Millennium Park to learn about and see an Array of Things node.
Visit the event website for additional details and to register.
The conference will begin the morning of April 25 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.
- Modeling: 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.
The 2018 Li-SM3 Conference is organized by the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) at Argonne National Laboratory, OXIS Energy, Oxford, UK and Imperial College London. Space is limited, so register now to attend the conference and to reserve your spot for pre-conference activities.
