In-person event with live streaming via MS Teams 



Lithium-Ion batteries and other energy storage devices have become one of the most critical technologies, because of the huge impact they have on nowadays life. From smartphones to electric vehicles, the needs for devices with better performances and a more environmentally sustainable is higher than ever. 

Recent advances in manufacturing, system and continuum scale modelling have been tremendous but phenomena like ageing and fast charging/discharging are still poorly understood and predictable due to the large disparity between the scale at which processes can be understood from first principles, and the scale at which experiments are available. 

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experimentalists, modellers, and computational scientists with interests in the micro-scale modelling of batteries, with the intent of identifying:  

  • Numerical and experimental benchmarks for testing and developing micro-scale models and solvers  

  • Best practices for validation, calibration, and uncertainty quantification of models for microstructure description of energy storage devices  

  • New modelling frameworks and tools to help explain currently poorly understood phenomena in battery design
