News & Events


Final program : The scientific program  for the symposium is available at the final program

Preliminary  program : The scientific program (preliminary) for the symposium is available at preliminary program. The program will be updated on August 21st. So, please register (if you had not done so already) to the symposium before this date, or sent us a firm confirmation that you will participate in the symposium . 11 August 2015


Summer School : A total of 68 trainees, a fraction  with COST support,  was accepted to summer school. The demand was exceptionally high especially within Turkey. The school will run , thanks to our colleagues,  in  two sections, with an alternating  program. The schedule  can be reached at summer school program .  11 August 2015

Symposium Schedule. Following the end of abstract submission, symposium schedule was updated. The schedule comprises, following the opening session, five “plenary” sessions and five slots for 3- parallel sessions. Poster session is on Tuesday from 12:30 to 15:30. Symposium dinner ( which was originally on the last day) was shifted to Tuesday evening.   11 August 2015  Summer School :Applications to  summer school  on Energy Storage and Conversion  have begun on May 18th. and finished  on June 8th. Applications are currently under review. First group of applicants  with COST support have already been selected and informed. The second (final) group will be notified by the end of the month   11  July 2015  Submissions: Thank you  for your submissions. We have received, as we have aimed,  similar  number of submissions  in each of the three activity areas; SS hydrogen storage , Batteries-Supercapacitors  and Fuel Cells-Electrolysers.  Abstract evaluation  is complete  and letters are to be sent via e-mail  by 24th  May 2015 at the latest.  18 May 2015;

As organizing committee, we would like to invite you to Ankara in the fall of 2015 (7-8-9 September) to contribute to mESC-IS 2015, International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion. The symposium will provide a forum for discussion in recent progress made in three major activity areas, namely solid state hydrogen storage, batteries and fuel cells. The symposium will have a fair balance of plenary sessions covering cross-cutting issues and the state of the art reviews and parallel sessions with contributed papers and poster presentations.

Solid State Hydrogen Storage (SSHS)

Batteries & Supercapacitors

Fuel Cells & Electrolysers

-Synthesis of novel materials;
    Thin films
    Nanoparticles and core-shell structures
    Porous and nanoscaffold hybrid materials
-Computational modeling of processes in SSHS
-Storage tanks
-Advanced characterization techniques
-Metal hydride batteries
-Adv. anode and cathode mat. for LIB
-All solid state batteries
-Metal-air batteries
-New generation batteries
-Batteries for grid energy storage
-Capacitive energy storage systems
-Hybrid capacitors
-Safety and interfaces
-Adv. electrode mat. for fuel cells & electrolysers
-Fuel cell catalysts and catalyst support
    oxygen ion, proton and mixed conductors
-Ceramic and metallic interconnects
-Sealing materials
-Novel processing in  cell and stack materials

The venue is Middle East Technical University, Ankara within easy reach with direct flights from International hubs such as Istanbul, Antalya, Munich and Doha. The city is a place of choice for many respects (ideal for the symposium and the summer school) and it is in close proximity to places such as Cappadocia, Gordion and Huttusas.

Abstract submission is now open  and will continue until March 31st 2015 (extended to April 15th). A full page abstract, if desired with figures and tables, is invited and will be available as book of abstract during the symposium. Full papers of selected contributions, if desired, will be published in a special section of the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy after the due review process.

We look forward hosting you in Ankara in September 2015
