4th International Symposium on Magnesium Batteries (MagBatt IV)

MagBatt IV

The 4th International Symposium on Magnesium Batteries (MagBatt IV) will take place from September 6 to 8, 2022 in Ulm, Germany. As always we will welcome some of the world's top battery speakers. This time we extend the program with calcium, zinc and aluminum batteries. The aim of the conference is to present and discuss the recent state-of-the-art and the progress in the post-lithium field.
