Record Number of Organizations to Participate in 2nd Battery Safety and 7th Lithium Battery Power Conferences Next Month in Las Vegas
BOSTON, MA - October 20, 2011 - The Knowledge Foundation has announced that a record number of organizations from around the world will participate in the 2nd Battery Safety and 7th Lithium Battery Power conferences in Las Vegas, NV from November 7-10, 2011.
More than 160 organizations have already confirmed their participation at these events (see below for complete list).
7th Lithium Battery Power
According to Dr. Serge Pann, Vice President of Science & Technology at the Knowledge Foundation, "Recent significant innovations have propelled lithium-ion battery technology to a position in the marketplace far exceeding initial expectations. From a vast array of portable applications, to micro medical devices, to high-power automotive, these breakthroughs have paved the way for an emerging market with unlimited potential."
Drawing upon more than ten years of tracking developments in lithium battery and fuel cell research, Lithium Battery Power 2011 will guide delegates from technology and materials development, through device packaging and integration, to applications in a mobile power marketplace. Program topics include:
New chemistries & materials to increase energy & decrease cost
Meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power & energy, cost and safety
Advanced materials for improved electrode & electrolyte performance
Application driven lithium ion battery development
Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance
From novel materials and components to systems design and integration
Role of nanotechnology in improving power and energy density
2nd Battery Safety
Widely publicized safety incidents and recalls of lithium-ion batteries have raised legitimate concerns regarding lithium-ion battery safety. Battery Safety 2011 is conveniently timed with Lithium Battery Power 2011 and will address these concerns by exploring the following topics:
Application specific battery safety issues affecting battery performance
Major battery degradation and reliability factors
Battery management systems
Commercial cell evaluation and failure analysis
Advances in testing techniques and protocols
High-throughput testing, automation and modeling for improved safety

Virtual Participation Via Live Webcast
While nothing can replace the unique educational and networking benefits of attending in person, for those whose schedule prevents them from attending, Lithium Battery Power and Battery Safety will be webcast live from Las Vegas, NV from November 7-10, 2011.
Global Battery Tutorial Will Also Be Held on November 8-9 in Las Vegas
This tutorial focuses on present and future needs of portable and stationary electrochemical energy sources and highlights the latest technological developments designed to satisfy application requirements. You will review primary, rechargeable, commercial, industrial and military batteries, and their accessories. Additionally, this program reviews typical cycle life aspects of designing and manufacturing energy source solutions: from application energy requirements, power source electrical and mechanical design, cells selection, cells evaluation tests, battery prototype, acceptance tests, design and manufacturing techniques, testing, mass production, safety issues, use and disposal. Special focus is given to battery design and testing along with the examination of safety issues along the energy source solution cycle life.
