EMSL Integration 2015 Explores Advanced Batteries and Catalysis Research
Registration now open
Registration is now open for "EMSL Integration 2015: Energy Materials and Processes for Advanced Batteries and Catalysis." The annual user meeting will be held September 15-17 at EMSL in Richland, Wash.
This year's meeting focuses on advanced batteries and catalysis research at the molecular level. Researchers from around the world and from academia, industry, and government research labs are encouraged to attend.
Confirmed plenary speakers include
- Baris Key, Research Chemist, Argonne National Laboratory
- Linda Nazar, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, Nanotechnology and Materials Chemistry, University of Waterloo, Canada
- Susannah Scott, Professor of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, Santa Barbara
- Johannes Lercher, Director of the Institute for Integrated Catalysis at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Professor of Chemistry at Technische Universität München, Germany
- Cathy Tway, R&D Director, Inorganic Materials and Heterogeneous Catalysis at The Dow Chemical Company
The agenda includes
- Sept. 15-16 - Battery Boot Camp. The group will work on a previously identified challenge associated with advanced batteries and advanced battery materials, discuss how EMSL capabilities are currently used to address the challenge, and then spend a day in small groups with EMSL scientists working on the challenge.
- Sept. 17 - Full day of plenary speakers with morning sessions focused on batteries and afternoon sessions focused on catalysis. Followed by a poster session, including a student poster competition and a vendor-sponsored dinner.
- On Sept. 18, the Pacific Coast Catalysis Society is holding its annual meeting at EMSL. Attendees of the EMSL user meeting are encouraged to attend the society's symposium.
