Brookline, MA (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
The Knowledge Foundation has announced that the 1st Battery Safety and 6th Lithium Mobile Power conferences will be held in Boston, MA next week from November 3-5, 2010 at the Hilton Boston Back Bay.
According to Dr. Serge Pann, Vice President of Science & Technology at the Knowledge Foundation, “Recent significant innovations have propelled lithium-ion battery technology to a position in the marketplace far exceeding initial expectations. From a vast array of portable applications, to micro medical devices, to high-power automotive, these breakthroughs have paved the way for an emerging market with unlimited potential.” At the same time, widely publicized safety incidents and recalls of lithium-ion batteries have raised legitimate concerns regarding lithium-ion battery safety. Battery Safety 2010 will address these concerns by exploring the following topics:
- Application specific battery safety issues affecting battery performance
- Major battery degradation and reliability factors
- Battery management systems
- Commercial cells evaluation and failure analysis
- Advances in testing techniques and protocols
- High throughput testing, automation and modeling for better safety
- Regulatory issues
Lithium Mobile Power 2010 will guide attendees from technology and materials development through device packaging and integration to applications in a mobile power marketplace. Program topics include:
- Li-ion batteries for PHEV, HEV, and EV - issues and solutions
- Revolutionizing Li-ion batteries for portable and consumer products
- Materials challenges - electrodes & electrolyte
- New electrolyte technologies for higher power and energy density
- System design & integration
- New lithium chemistries for better electrodes and higher performance
For those unable to attend this conference in person, it will be possible to participate virtually via live webcast.
