About the Conference

The first Asia-Pacific Conference on Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion (APEnergy2014) organized by The University of Queensland (UQ) aims to foster discussion of fundamental and technological challenges and research frontiers in developing next-generation electrochemical energy storage and conversion technology. APEnergy2014 will bring together leading researchers, scholars and company executives from the region (and beyond) to identify problems and establish contacts for collaborations and commercial exploitations. The conference will be held at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) in South Bank Parklands – a unique precinct with a focus on the arts, culture and entertainment, and river side city oasis with inner-city beach, gardens and rainforest. BCEC is about 10-minute walk from Brisbane CBD. APEnergy2014 includes a welcome reception in the evening of 5 Feb, a three-day technical program from 6 to 8 Feb, and a conference banquet on 7 Feb. The conference features plenary, keynote, invited and oral talks, as well poster presentations. Five best posters will be selected and awarded with both cash prizes and certificates. On behalf of the Committees of APEnergy2014, we cordially invite you to Brisbane in February 2014 to join this event.
