Symposium ES01-Next-Generation EV Battery Materials—Bridging Academic, Government and Industry Research

This symposium will broadly cover emerging materials, technologies, and techniques relevant to electric vehicles (EVs), with a focus on building connections between academic, government, and industrial researchers. The symposium will have portions dedicated to materials for each major cell component (i.e., anodes, cathodes, electrolytes) as well a full cell construction and performance. Symposium contributions should address fundamentals of these materials (e.g., synthesis, properties, degradation mechanisms), the development of practical, industrially relevant technologies from these materials (e.g., performance, scalability, cost, manufacturing), or modelling and/or diagnostics of these materials (e.g., Multiscale modeling from materials to devices, and machine learning approach for failure analysis, in situ/operando characterization). There will also be sessions and speakers dedicated to more forward-looking topics, including battery recycling/sustainability, and the process of, and challenges associated with, bringing new materials to market. This symposium will provide a snapshot of the current state-of-the-art for EV battery materials by bringing together researchers and highlighting invited speakers from all three research sectors.

Topics will include:

  • Emerging Anode Materials: Si and Li Metal
  • Low-cost, Abundant, and High-Performance Cathode Materials
  • Electrolyte Design for Li-Ion Batteries
  • Solid-State Batteries: Performance and Manufacturing
  • Advances in Scale-Up and Manufacturing of Next-Generation Cell Technologies
  • Theoretical Understanding and Design of Battery Materials
  • Advances In Battery Recycling
  • Diversifying Battery Materials
  • Sustainability In Battery Technology
