CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The Forum committee is no longer accepting abstract submissions for presentations. However, there are a select number of poster presentation spots available. Please encourage your colleagues and peers to submit their research for consideration.

The 2019 ESS Safety & Reliability Forum provides a platform for discussing the current state of ESS Safety & Reliability (ESS-SR) and stratagems for improving cell-to-system level safety and reliability. This open forum will provide poster authors an opportunity to present their work in ESS-SR, and it will provide attendees the chance to see the work that is creating the future of ESS-SR. It offers a unique mix of learning from inspirational keynote and invited speakers, contributing with other stakeholders in energy storage.  This forum’s aim is to advance the current DOE roadmap for energy storage– and it only happens once a year.
