  • The Sweden capital will host from the 1st to 5th September the 2019 edition of the EUROMAT congress. The E3 symposium will focus on batteries.

    “Batteries: from Materials to Cell.” The E3 symposium of the EUROMAT congress will communicate recent progress in advanced batteries for electrochemical energy storage.

    It is organized with the help of two members of RS2E, Laure Monconduit from the Charles Gerhardt Institute and Mathieu Morcrette from LRCS. Dr. Fanny Barde, Prof. Serena Corr and Prof. Kimberly See are also part of the organizing committee.

    The symposium will take place in Stockholm between the 1st and 5th September in the City Conference center.

    You can submit your abstract before the 28th February following this link:

  • A CECAM workshop titled “Theory meets industry” will be organized in Paris between the 12th and the 14th June.

    How much energy can an electrochemical energy storage device store? How fast can it be charged? Those questions are practical issues for the industrials and the next CECAM workshop will try to answers some of their interrogations.

    Marie-Liesse Doublet from the Charles Gerhardt Institute and Mathieu Salanne from Sorbonne University organize the meeting, which will take place from the 12th June to the 14th June in Paris. Their aim: “To bring together some of the worldwide experts in the field of electrochemical energy storage simulations […] with the interested industrial partners.”

    More information about the location will be published soon. However, the list of the invited speakers is already available.

    The instructions to apply can be found following this link:

    You can also contact the organizers: M.L. Doublet and M. Salanne.

  • Paris will welcome the 47th congress of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) between July 7th and July 12th.

    In 2019, The IUPAC will hold its 47th international congress in Paris under the patronage of M. Emmanuel Macron, president of the French Republic.

    The complete scientific program is available here and covers several fields of the chemistry. Among the proposed themes, the one called “Chemistry for energy and resources” is coordinated by, among others, Jean-Marie Tarascon, RS2E director, and Alexis Grimaud from Collège de France.

    Registrations are now open:

    One of the symposiums, “New approaches for electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems”, is co-organized by Patrice Simon, RS2E deputy director.

    Such as Pr. Atsuo Yamada from the University of Tokyo or Pr. Yuri Gogotsi from Drexel University, great invited speakers are expected.

  • The annual meeting of the French study group on insertion compounds (GFECI) is organized this year in Obernai, about twenty kilometers from Strasbourg.

    The GFECI 2019 meeting will take place from Monday 25th to Thursday 28th March. The aim of this event is to ease encounters between the different research players (academic or industrial) on insertion compounds and to incite discussions.

    During this symposium, Phd students and postdocs will be able to present their latest works to experienced researchers and industrial partner.

    The registration can be done following this link:

    The scientific committee is comprised of Laurence Croguennec from ICMCB, Claire Herold from IJL, Jean-Pierre Pereira-Ramos from ICMPE, Guillaume Rogez from IPCMS and Christine Taviot-Gueho of ICCF.

    The following link leads to the provisional list of the guest speakers:

    The meeting attendees will be welcomed and housed in the VVF "La plaine d'Alsace - Obernai", 2 rue de Berlin.

    Thanks to the Institut de Physique et des Matériaux de Strasbourg (IPCMS) and to the Institut de Science des Matériaux de Mulhouse (IS2M) for organizing this event, supported by the RS2E.

  • The European Materials Research Society begins its call for papers for the symposium C that will take place between the 27th and 31st May 2019. The meeting title is: “Batteries and supercapacitors: fundamentals, materials and devices.”

    The E-MRS 2019 symposium C will take place in Nice at the Acropolis for 5 days. It is co-organized by Alexandre PONROUCH from the IMCAB-CSIC, Alexandru VLAD from the UC Louvain, Bruce DUNN from the UCLA and Mathieu MORCRETTE, RS2E member and LRCS director in Amiens.

    The forum aims to give an opportunity to scientists worldwide to present the state of the art developments and discuss the strategies to improve the performance metrics, safety attributes and reduce the cost of the electrochemical energy storage systems.

    Volunteers can submit their abstract until January 15th. An European scientific committee will then select the scientists that will orally present theirs works during the meeting. The selected manuscripts will be published in a special issue of Batteries & Supercaps journal (from Wiley-VCH).

    The list with the hot topics and the invited speakers is available in the symposium web site:

    Artem ABAKOUMOV from Skolkovo Innovation Center, Atsuo Yamada from the University of Tokyo or Patrice SIMON from CIRIMAT are examples of invited speakers.
