Original Agenda

We are actively working with our speakers to confirm their availability for our new dates and will share the updated program once it is available. Initial response from our speakers has been very positive so we are quite optimistic the July agenda will be as valuable as the March. In fact, we are thrilled to share that all five Plenary Keynotes have already confirmed their participation!

Sixteen tutorials will take place at the International Battery Seminar & Exhibit on Monday, July 27 and Wednesday, July 29. The tutorials are designed to be instructional, interactive and provide in-depth information on a specific topic. Tutorial themes include introductions for those new to the field as well as explanations on more technical aspects than time allows during our main conference programs that take place Tuesday – Thursday. Instructors are drawn from industry and academics alike, many of whom are recognized authorities in their fields or have teaching experience.
