Symposium ES04—Interfaces in Electrochemical Energy Storage

This symposium will provide an excellent forum to address the fundamental and technological aspects of interfaces (e.g., solid-solid, solid-liquid and solid-gas) in electrochemical energy storage devices. Understanding the fundamental aspects of all interfacial reactions, and mechanisms of ionic transport, electron transport and electrodeposition across all interfaces; electrochemical technologies including lithium-ion, lithium-sulfur, lithium-air, magnesium-ion and sodium-ion batteries; symmetrical and asymmetrical supercapacitors; new anode and cathode materials; design of novel electrode architectures, and new advances in electrolyte chemistries will be highlighted. Special emphasis will be given to abstracts in areas of advanced and in-situ characterization techniques as well as electrochemical modeling and multiscale simulations to analyze performance and safety aspects of energy storage devices.

Topics will include:

  • New anode and cathode materials
  • Novel electrode architecture design
  • Li-ion and non-Li technologies
  • Symmetrical and asymmetrical supercapacitors
  • Fundamentals of interfacial reactions
  • Methods of in-situ characterization
  • Modeling and multiscale simulations
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
