Synopsis
The ECR Materials annual conference returns this year, continuing our committee theme of sustainable materials, with a focus on how the frontiers of battery materials are changing and what the future holds. Join us to take part in discussions, talks and networking opportunities between researchers and business in and associated with the field of sustainable energy. There will be a particular focus on providing early career researchers with a platform on which to showcase their research, and we will be joined by prominent and well-established scientists to provide an overview of the scientific field at large. We are looking for abstracts in the following areas:

Advances in battery material design
AI in battery materials
Frontiers in materials characterisation of battery materials
New materials for battery technologies
Attendees
This event is aimed at researchers in materials chemistry and specifically in the fields and sub-fields of battery materials in its various forms.
It will look to bring researchers from all career stages together but maintaining an opportunity for ECRs to showcase work and develop contacts and network. It is also aimed at industry partners looking for new avenues of research into battery applications.
Call for oral and poster abstracts

Contributions are invited from early stage researchers and PhD students working in the materials science field focused on energy materials to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation.  

The poster session will be held in the garden room at Belgrave Square during lunch and after the talks.

An abstract of maximum 250 words indicating title, authors, institution and preference for presentation option (Oral presentation or virtual poster) should be sent to conferences@soci.org by Sunday 30 June with the subject line “SCI ECR Materials Energy Frontiers - abstract submission”. Presentation slots are inevitably limited and will be allocated to achieve a balanced programme – researchers will be invited to contribute a poster if submission is not chosen for oral presentation. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentation and poster. An abstract template can be downloaded here.
