Showcase Your Battery Research

Contribute to the scientific community’s research of battery innovations during the BCI Poster Research Showcase hosted at the 2024 Battery Council International (BCI) Convention & Power Mart Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, April 21-24, 2024.

This poster experience is intended to support researchers in university, governmental and commercial settings in building awareness about the scientific opportunity and objectives of careers in battery technology, preferably with a focus on lead, and to share cutting-edge science and technology across this critical industry.

BCI is soliciting research posters that will bring forward scientific work on Pb and other battery types.

Lead battery research at national labs

Example Topic Areas for Posters

  • Material science of active materials and conversion processes in battery cycling
  • Control of material morphology during the lifecycle of a battery in service
  • Advanced battery design and structures
  • Advanced manufacturing: additive processes, integrated processes with advanced battery design, pick and place, continuous assembly development
  • Battery architecture interface within vehicles/other applications- low voltage/vehicle traction
  • Other special topics as identified

Preference will be given for papers that focus on Pb batteries and related topics.

“The convention brings many experts in lead batteries from the academic and industrial fields. So, to present my doctoral project to this audience was a great opportunity to exchange experiences and learn more about battery technology.”
