Call for Papers

Abstract deadline 31 August 2017

We are inviting PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working on energy materials to present their research at the CAM-IES Autumn Symposium being held at Queen Mary University of London on 21 September 2017. The symposium will consist of three plenary lectures and twelve contributed talks (15 minutes) from PhD students and postdocs, as well as a poster session and ample opportunity for networking.

The Centre for Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems (CAM-IES) is a joint centre funded by the EPSRC involving Cambridge, Newcastle, QMUL, UCL and multiple industrial partners. The overall objectives of CAM-IES are to create a UK-based community of researchers focused on materials for Integrated Energy Systems and to develop advanced materials for

Energy Storage:

  • solid-state batteries
  • coatings for high voltage electrode battery materials
  • flow batteries 

 and Energy Conversion:

  • solid-oxide fuel cells
  • CO2 gas separation membranes
  • thin film photovoltaics
  • large-area thermoelectrics

It will exploit currently unexplored synergies between these different energy fields, in particular in the context of characterisation, scientific understanding and control of the key interfaces in these devices.

This is an excellent opportunity for students and early-career researchers to present their work and network within the UK community of researchers focusing on materials for integrated energy systems.



Please send abstracts using the provided template to Dr. Suman-Lata Sahonta ( and indicate whether you prefer an oral or poster presentation. Deadline for abstract submission is 31 August 2017.
