mESC-IS , The 7th International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, will take place in Akyaka 17-21 July 2023. As before the symposium will provide a forum for discussion in recent progress made in three major activity areas, namely i) batteries and supercapacitors, ii) fuel/electrolytic cells, and iii) hydrogen for energy storage and transport. The symposium will also have special sessions on iv) research methods in batteries and fuel cells and v) prototyping, life assessment and battery recycling. The symposium will have a fair balance of plenary sessions on cross-cutting issues and the state of the art reviews plus in-depth parallel sessions on specific topics with invited, contributed papers and poster presentations.

The symposium will follow an international summer school, mESC-School 23, taking place just prior to the symposium.
