8th Workshop "Lithium-Sulfur-Batteries"

June 18–19, 2020, Fraunhofer IWS Dresden

Lithium-sulfur batteries are the most promising choice for future energy storage systems. Lithium metal anodes are decisive components as they determine cycling stability and specific energy, also in solid state batteries. Topical sessions of this year’s workshop will address the development of lithium metal anodes and all-solid-state cell concepts. Novel materials such as nanostructured carbon/sulfur composite cathodes, solid electrolytes and alloy-based anodes are crucial to significantly enhance the cell performance.

Following the great success of our previous Lithium-Sulfur Battery Workshops, next year’s symposium will again bring together an international audience of scientists and industrial customers.

Renowned experts will present the latest results, new materials, processes and applications in the field of lithium-sulfur batteries.

Plenary lectures by internationally renowned speakers as well as an exhibition running concurrently to the conference will offer delegates excellent possibilities to get acquainted with the latest developments and research results. A poster session will complement the comprehensive technical program.
