Since the KAIST launched “EEWS (Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability) Initiative” in 2008, the KAIST has worked to establish a multi-disciplinary research and educational system in order to innovate technologies and identify future research focus regarding natural environment, human health, and climate change. In order to fulfill the role of a research hub that could be one of the purpose of the EEWS initiative, we held annual international workshop for more than 9 years. In the International Workshop on EEWS 2017 – Next Generation Technology for Advanced Energy Storage System, we invited United States, China, Singapore, etc. This workshop covers key topics that are relevant to the lithium-ion batteries, sodium-ion batteries, and organic batteries, etc. and would provide a unique opportunity to share the progress on diverse fields of advanced technology of next generation rechargeable batteries and propose the direction future research.
We cordially invite scholars, academic researchers, practitioners, and students to participate and discuss the progress and future of next generation rechargeable batteries. We look forward to meeting all of you at the workshop.
