Sixth Lithium Mobile Power Conference to be Held in Boston

The Knowledge Foundation has announced that the 6th Lithium Mobile Power conference will be held in Boston, MA from November 4-5, 2010 at the Hilton Boston Back Bay.

According to Dr. Serge Pann, Vice President of Science & Technology at the Knowledge Foundation, “Recent significant innovations have propelled lithium-ion battery technology to a position in the marketplace far exceeding initial expectations. From a vast array of portable applications, to micro medical devices, to high-power automotive, these breakthroughs have paved the way for an emerging market with unlimited potential.” More than 130 organizations from around the world participated in last year’s conference in Boston.

Drawing upon ten years of tracking developments in lithium battery and fuel cell research, Lithium Mobile Power will guide delegates from technology and materials development, through device packaging and integration, to applications in a mobile power marketplace, and is conveniently timed with Battery Safety 2010. Program topics will include:

  • Li-ion batteries for PHEV, HEV, and EV - issues and solutions
  • Revolutionizing li-ion batteries for portable and consumer products
  • Materials challenges - electrodes & electrolyte
  • New electrolyte technologies for higher power and energy density
  • Safety, testing, performance
  • System design & integration
  • New lithium chemistries for better electrodes and higher performance
