9th International Symposium
Advanced Battery Power – Kraftwerk Batterie
Aachen, 29-30 March 2017
Life in our modern world without batteries is almost unthinkable, and electricity will in future come more often from batteries than from a socket.
Being contactable wherever you are means always having batteries in your communication devices. Batteries are employed millions of times a day to start combustion engines, as well as being used for emergency power supplies.
However, batteries will soon not just help us get started, they will also supply the motive power for our cars. Future electric vehicles will have ranges of 400 km and more. This will be made possible by the rapidly falling price of batteries and the emerging mass market.
These days, batteries are an integral technological component in home solar energy installations and in the electricity grid generally, and their importance is growing dramatically.
Researchers, developers and users from industry, science and research will be discussing the latest trends, studies and findings from battery research from 29-30 March 2017 in Aachen at the English-language Advanced Battery Power Conference.
The programme is now online (www.battery-power.eu). Over 550 trade visitors are expected. Internationally renowned experts such as Jeff Dahn, FRSC from Dalhousie University NSERC/Tesla Canada Industrial Research and Dr. Michael Thackeray from the Argonne National Laboratory have already been booked as keynote speakers.
The Advanced Battery Power Symposium on the previous day will offer related introductory and basic seminars. Battery Day NRW will be sponsored by Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research of the State of Nordrhein-Westfalen.
For three days in March 2017, the Eurogress convention centre in Aachen will be the global centre of international battery research and applications.
The exhibition is already almost fully booked.

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
