International Conference on Advanced Lithium Batteries for Automobile Applications

We are pleased to welcome you to the 8th edition of the International Conference on Advanced Lithium Batteries for Automobile Applications, ABAA-8. This edition will take place in Bilbao (Basque Country) hosted by CIC Energigune – Energy Storage Research Center.

Starting in 2008, the ABAA conferences were conceived with the mission of enhancing global R&D of advanced lithium batteries for vehicles, accelerating the discussion and communication of R&D progress, as well as strengthening global collaboration in this field.

The 8th edition will start next 30th of September 2015 and it will be a 2.5 days conference where academia and battery and automotive industry will showcase the latest research and development in advanced lithium batteries focused on automotive applications, which are critical to achieve fuel-efficient automobiles such as hybrid electrical vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and pure electric vehicles (EV).

This event will feature talks and posters on materials research, electrochemistry and battery engineering delivered by international experts. Topics will include:

–      Development of novel materials: cathodes, anodes, electrolytes and electrolyte additives.

–      Safety and degradation mechanisms of lithium ion batteries.

–      System design including the latest market trends affecting the automotive industry.

–      New chemistries for energy storage.
