International Conference on Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

Lithium-sulfur batteries are the most promising choice for future energy storage systems.

Recent prototype cells reveal the potential for ultra-high specific energy while applying low cost raw materials and scalable production technologies. Novel materials such as protected lithium anodes, nanostructured carbon/sulfur composite cathodes and various electrolyte concepts are crucial to significantly enhance and tailor the cell performance for specific applications.

The International Conference on Lithium-Sulfur Batteries is providing the platform for renowned experts from science and industry to present the latest results, new materials, processes and applications in the field of lithium-sulfur batteries.

Following the great success of the first edition of this conference series 2019 in Beijing, China, the second International Conference on Lithium-Sulfur Batteries is being held in Dresden, Germany, on June 28 - 30, 2021.


The conference aims to cover latest developments in

  • Li-S-technology in context of other next generation battery developments
    •     Overview and comparison of various post-Li-Ion-batteries (Status & Potential)
