International summer school on materials for  energy storage and conversion(mESC-IS School 2019)  is an integral part of  the symposium held with the same name ( International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, mESC-IS 2019).   The summer school, took place 7-11 September  2019 just before the symposium  at Mugla   Sıtkı Koçman University  except for the last-morning-session  on the fifth day  which made the scene  at Yücelen Hotel, Akyaka . 

The school followed the structure of the earlier schools, mESC-School 2017 and 2015 and aimed to bring  early researchers with those experienced in the field. The school covered the state-of-the-art reviews in selected topics plus in depth coverage of materials and electrochemical characterization techniques.

Topics covered in the summer school were as follows;

Material/Electrochemical Characterization

Mario El Kazzi (Paul Sherrer Institut): Photoemission spectroscopy in battery research
Y.Eren Kalay(METU):In Situ Synchrotron Diffraction and Rietveld Analysis
Matthew Lacey(Uppsala University)EIS  for Battery Research
Meltem Sezen(Sabancı University):Focus Ion Beam Techniques in Mat.  Characterization
Servet Turan( Eskisehir Technical University) Adv. Techniques in Electron Microscopy


M. Kadri Aydınol (METU):How to make batteries-cell making pocesses
Michael Aziz(Harvard University)Organic Flow Batteries 
Aligul Buyukaksoy(Gebze Technical University): Int. Temp. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Babu Chalamala (Sandia National Laboratories):   Grid-Scale Energy Storage
Rezan Demir-Cakan(Gebze Technical University)Li-S batteries
