Lock in Your Location at IMLB

imlb-cover-resizedLithium batteries are everywhere!

IMLB 2016 will be the premier international conference on the state of lithium battery science and technology. Convening from June 19-24 in the heart of downtown Chicago, the conference is expected to draw 2,000 experts, researchers, and company representatives involved in the lithium battery field. This meeting is one of the leading resources for industry experts from around the world and attendees represent an extremely well-targeted and responsive audience.

Join industry leaders like, Samsung, Toyota and more as an exhibitor at the 2016 IMLB. As an exhibitor, you will have the unique opportunity to present your products and services to key constituents from industry, government and academia.

Exhibit space is filling up quickly!

As always, exhibit booths and sponsorship options will be allotted on a first come, first served basis. As the exhibit lineup continues to grow we highly recommend you lock in your exhibit location and sponsorship options today. To reserve a booth, or browse our sponsorship options, please complete pages 7-8 of our online exhibit and sponsorship brochure and return them by no later than Friday, March 11.

If you have any questions, or would like to work on a custom package, please feel free to contact Casey Emilius, ECS Meetings Coordinator.

IMLBNow that we have extended the abstract submission deadline to February 15, don’t miss your chance to participate in IMLB 2016!

This international meeting will provide an exciting forum to discuss recent progress in advanced lithium batteries for energy storage and conversion. The meeting will focus on both basic and applied research findings that have led to improved Li battery materials, and to the understanding of the fundamental processes that determine and control electrochemical performance.

A major (but not exclusive) theme of the meeting will address recent advances in beyond lithium-ion technologies. The meeting will cover a wide range of topics relating to lithium battery science and technology including, but not limited to:

  • General and national projects
  • Anodes and cathodes
  • Nanostructured materials for lithium batteries
  • Liquid electrolytes and ionic liquids
  • Polymer, gel, and solid electrolytes
  • Issues related to sources and availability of materials for Li batteries
  • Li battery recycling
  • Electrode/electrolyte interface phenomena
  • Safety, reliability, cell design and engineering
  • Monitoring, control and validation systems
  • Manufacturing and formation techniques
  • Primary and rechargeable Li cells
  • Industrial production and development for HEVs, PHEVs, and EVs
  • Latest developments in Li battery technology

Make sure to submit your abstract before February 15, 2016!

Advancing Lithium-Air Batteries

As electronics advances, the demand for high-performance batteries increases. The lithium-ion battery is currently leading the charge in powering portable electronic devices, but another lithium-based battery contender is on the horizon.

The lithium-air battery is one of the most promising research areas in current lithium-based battery technology. While researchers such as ECS’s K.M. Abraham have been on the Li-air beat since the late 90s, current research is looking to propel this technology with the hopes of commercializing it for practical use.

A new contender: Lithium-air batteries

Recently, Khalil Amine, IMLB chair; and Larry Curtiss, IMLB invited speaker, co-authored a paper detailing a lithium-air battery that could store up to five times more energy than today’s lithium-ion battery.

This work brings society one step closer to the commercial use of lithium-air batteries. In previous works regarding Li-air, researchers continuously encountered the same phenomenon of the clogging of the pores of the electrode.
