4th International Conference BATTERY SAFETY 2013 November  14  - 15 ,  2013 in San Diego, CA


Widely publicized safety incidents, hazardous events related and recalls of lithium-ion batteries have raised legitimate concerns regarding lithium-ion battery safety across various battery systems sizes and applications, from microelectronics and medical to automotive and aero space. Battery Safety 2013 is conveniently timed with our 9th annual Lithium Battery Power 2013 and will address the concerns of battery safety and reliability by exploring a wide spectrum of related topics including the following:

• Application specific battery safety issues affecting battery performance

-       Microbatteries

-       Batteries for electronic devices

-       Automotive batteries

-       Battery systems for military applications

-       Batteries for aviation and aero space use

-       Large scale energy storage systems

• Major battery degradation and reliability factors

• Internal shorts, thermal runaway and stability, aging, catastrophic failure, etc.

• Intelligent battery management systems

• Abuse tolerance and advanced testing procedures and protocols

• Commercial cells evaluation and failure analysis

• Improving safety trough computational methods, modeling and simulation

• High throughput testing, automation and modeling for better safety

• Standardization and regulatory issues
