5th Solid-state Chemistry & Ionics (SCI) workshop, September 10~13, 2018

Scope

Solid-state chemistry and solid-state ionics are the fields dealing with the breadth of advanced energy technologies such as lithium ion batteries, solid oxide fuel cells, electrolyzers, sensors, catalysts, photocatalysts, and so on. Fundamental understanding of the structure-chemical bonding-property relationship is the heart of the fields. Discovery of new compound always fascinated chemists and scientists, which brought tremendous advances in energy technologies. LiFePO4 for Li-ion battery is a great example. Although the activities accelerate in both fields, it is getting difficult to cover progress in both fields. To address the situation, we started this workshop. Each workshop focuses on a specific theme covered by specialists in the fields.

The fifth edition explores a wide range of topics in both solid-state chemistry and solid-state ionics fields (including batteries, fuel cells, superconductors, thermoelectrics, sensors, photocatalysts, catalysts, computational design, and so on), extending for four days. Similar to Gordon conference, the SCI workshop is designed for in-depth discussion and interaction among participants. There will be ample unscheduled time for ad hoc discussions during coffee break, lunch time and social events as part of the program. Poster session gives an opportunity for researchers and students to discuss their on-going projects with splendid participants from various fields. The SCI poster award will be given to the best presenters among the students and post-docs.We hope that this workshop broadens your perspectives, provides catalytic activities between the fields, and ultimately creates a new direction of our disciplines.
