Oxford Battery Modelling Symposium returns to Pembroke College in 2023

The event from 27-28 March will bring together mathematicians, chemists, physicists and engineers to discuss the latest modelling research and applications.

Oxford Battery Modelling Symposium 2019

OBMS 2019

The Oxford Battery Modelling Symposium (OBMS), which started in 2019, is a unique event for the battery community. OBMS brings together mathematicians, chemists, physicists and engineers from academia and industry to discuss the latest modelling research and applications.

The event's philosophy is to invite a small number of outstanding speakers spanning a range of topics from atomistic to continuum modelling, controls and beyond, giving broad and inspiring presentations and open discussions.

The Symposium is organised by the Department's Professor David Howey and Professor Charles Monroe, along with Professors Colin Please and Jon Chapman of the Maths Institute. 

The first event in 2019 was attended by 170 people from 14 countries, with leading experts including John Newman speaking; subsequent events in 2020 and 2021 were held online during lockdown periods but continued to be wildly popular.

OBMS 2023 will return as an in-person event at Pembroke College in Oxford. Speakers already confirmed include: Professor Jürgen Janek, who has a chair for Physical Chemistry at Justus Liebig University in Giessen and is director of the JLU Center for Materials Research and Scientific Director of the BELLA lab; Professor Tejs Vegge, Head of Section for Autonomous Materials Discovery at the Technical University of Denmark; Dr Simona Onori, Assistant Professor in Energy Science and Engineering at Stanford University; Dr Birger Horstmann, who leads the 'Theory of Electrochemical Systems' team at the German Aerospace Center in the Helmholtz Institute Ulm; Professor Sam Cooper, Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London; and Dr Kara Fong, Schmidt Science Fellow and Trinity College Junior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, working with Professor Angelos Michaelides and Professor Clare Grey.

Further speaker details will be added to the OBMS website.

The event will also include a poster session and a 3 course dinner in Pembroke College's historic dining hall.
