The annual International Conference on Sodium Batteries is an excellent opportunity to assess and communicate the current understanding and benchmark for cutting edge science in this fast developing field. This series of conferences that spotlights the recent sodium battery technology was launched by Professor Rojo from CIC Energigune (Spain) in 2014: it has received greater and greater success in Spain (2014), USA-Phoenix (2015), AUSTRALIA-Melbourne (2016) and JAPAN-Kyoto (2017).
The YESS award is a contest for young scientists. The best projects (from materials to systems) are awarded €10.000 and €2.500 in prize money respectively. To participate, young scientists have to submit an innovative project of a few pages before July 24th.
