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
  • COgas 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.

The University of Cambridge EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, or NanoDTC for short, invites expressions of interest for participation in a “Future Directions in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology” Roadmapping Workshop.

The NanoDTC plans to draw up its vision for the next 5-year phase and seeks input from industry leaders to prioritise focus areas and to pick goals which provide a fertile ground for real technologies as well as new science. Expressions of interest are therefore invited from senior technical staff from interested companies to attend the road-mapping workshop on 28th September. The NanoDTC is particularly looking for participants who are directly interested in this general field, are happy to contribute their insights and are able to map the discussions to the priorities of their industry sector. It will be a highly interactive activity, with an opportunity for all participants to actively contribute their thoughts. The workshop is expected to provide useful insights for all attendees from academia and industry, which will be collated after the workshop and made available to all contributors.

For further details, including current focus areas, and how to get involved even if you cannot make this particular date - visit: www.maxwell.cam.ac.uk/news/call-expressions-interest-future-directions-nano-roadmapping-workshop .

The In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy seminars takes place every fortnight during term. There will be a sandwich lunch from 12pm with the seminar starting at 12.30pm. The talk is given by Prof Bina Agarwal (Global Development Institute, University of Manchester).

 

The speaker will present for around 30 minutes, followed by the respondent and then a Q&A session with the audience members.

 

A sandwich lunch is provided from 12-12.30pm in the Atrium of the Alison Richard Building before the seminar begins, which is open to all and no registration is required. If you are unable to attend the talk feel free to drop by for the lunch and meet the speaker. You can also send in your comments and questions to be posed to the speaker in advance.

 

The seminar is part of the In Search of 'Good' Energy Policy Research Group which focuses on energy policy from an interdisciplinary perspective. What constitutes a ‘good’ policy is conditioned not only by technology and financial factors but also by social norms and values, institutions, geopolitics, public trust and history.

 

The seminar series explores energy policy themes from different disciplinary perspectives - economics, history, philosophy, theology, politics, law, anthropology, psychology, engineering - with the aim of identifying principles and processes for ‘good’ energy policy making.
