Next Generation Batteries 2013

The Knowledge Foundation announces that the call for speakers for Next Generation Batteries 2013 is now open. This conference will take place on April 30 - May 1, 2013 in Boston, MA. The deadline to submit a proposal is December 28, 2012.

This conference will address 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. Will lithium-ion batteries deliver on the promises of the power, energy, cost and safety in commercially available energy storage systems? Or maybe the future lays somewhere beyond lithium-based chemistries? Our panel of leading experts in fields of battery materials, systems design and integration, manufacturing and commercial applications will look into emerging issues underlining this pivotal time in the battery industry.

Next Generation Batteries 2013 program topics will include:
•New chemistries & materials to increase energy/power & reduce cost
•Lithium vs. 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 & silicon, magnesium & zinc, manganese & vanadium
•Lithium air / lithium oxygen
•Leading role of nanomaterials in battery technology breakthroughs
•Advances in flow batteries
•Thin film batteries
•Highly flexible printed batteries / Paper batteries
•From novel materials and components to systems architecture and integration
•Meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power& energy, cost and safety
•Super-, ultra, and pseudo capacitors in hybrid battery devices
•Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance

To Submit a Proposal
While many of the oral presentations will be invited, at this time we also welcome submissions for speakers, session topics and discussion leaders. If you are interested in being considered for one of these roles, or would like to recommend someone, please submit a proposal for the program committee's consideration to

The deadline to submit a proposal is December 28, 2012.
