Electrochemical batteries are crucial for a wide and growing range of applications from electric vehicles to grid energy storage. Yet despite huge advances in battery science and technology over the past 30 years, there is still much that is not well understood about their underlying operating principles. Mathematical modelling and simulation of batteries offers the opportunity to develop accurate predictions of performance, speeding up design cycles and improving control and management in applications. However, the continuum battery modelling community remains dispersed, encompassing mathematicians, chemical engineers, control engineers, and others.
The Oxford Battery Modelling Symposium provides an opportunity for battery modelling researchers in academia and industry to come together in a friendly and inclusive environment and discuss their latest findings through talks and poster sessions.
