Beyond Lithium Ion Symposium-10 (BLI-X) - overview
The 10th Beyond Li-Ion symposium (BLI-X) will be hosted by IBM Research- Almaden on June 27-29, 2017. This meeting is one of a successive series of symposiums organized by a consortium of IBM Research and U.S. national laboratories including Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley, Pacific Northwest, Oak Ridge and National Renewable to bring together scientists and engineers focused on transformational advances in scalable energy storage.
At the BLI-X, we will focus on industry innovations, lithium metal batteries, solid-state batteries, status of today’s technology, multivalent technologies, safety, and electrified aircrafts.
Leading researchers and manufacturers will discuss critically necessary materials, diagnostics, scaling, and manufacturing issues associated with better performing energy storage devices. Through this open format dialogue, the organizers aim to accelerate innovation, reduce costs, and improve the safety of advanced, electrochemical energy storage concepts and systems "beyond lithium ion." These symposiums have attracted a broad range of experts in this field from various countries around the world.
