Want to meet other members of the battery modelling community and discuss the latest battery applications and research?

In 2019 over 170 battery modelling researchers from academia and industry came together in a friendly and inclusive environment at the first Oxford Battery Modelling Symposium to discuss the latest findings in our field. We initiated the event to bring together mathematicians, chemists, physicists and engineers, so that we could learn from each other, discuss best practice, and provide excellent networking opportunities. The popularity of the event was reflected in the number of high profile academic and industry representatives who attended, including researchers from many leading universities worldwide as well as industry delegates from companies including Siemens, Continental, Renault, PSA, BMW, Aston Martin, Williams Advanced Engineering, Johnson Matthey, and Comsol.

In 2020, OBMS ran again, switching to an online format at the last minute due to COVID-19. The event was a success, and again attracted a sizeable number of attendees and some great speakers over two days.

Oxford Battery Modelling Symposium 2021 will run as a virtual event, with presentations from world-leading experts. There will also be the opportunity to present your own research in our popular poster session.
