ELBC call for papers and conference expo launched

ELBC call for papers and conference expo launched


ELBC, the global lead battery innovation conference which takes place in Lyon, France, 6-9 September 2022, has opened a call for papersexpo bookings and sponsorship packages

The conference, jointly organised by the International Lead Association and the Consortium for Battery Innovation, is encouraging papers on lead battery energy storage systems, automotive and industrial batteries, and updates on technical developments and new research. 

More than 120 expo stands plus silver and bronze sponsorship packages are available to book on the conference website at www.elbcexpo.org.

This will be the first face-to-face ELBC conference since Vienna in 2018, after the 2020 event took place online for the first time amid the global coronavirus pandemic. 

 In Lyon, south-west France, the conference takes place at the impressive Centre de Congrès, with easy links to international airports including Paris and Nice. The food capital of France, Lyon’s culinary gems offer a diverse experience for visitors. 

Dr Andy Bush of ILA said: “We are delighted to be planning ELBC again, a unique conference which is organised by the industry for the industry. It’s been a long wait to 

get back together and discuss in person all aspects of the market as well as innovation and lead battery research. ELBC brings together the whole industry from manufacturers to suppliers, researchers and analysts. We will be hosting a major expo and look forward to seeing partners from across the industry and the world.”

Dr Alistair Davidson of CBI said: “We’re co-organising ELBC for the first time and as interest in lead battery innovation continues to grow, ELBC is a great opportunity to hear all of the latest developments in research as well as technical updates. We will also be holding a pre-conference workshop in Lyon on low-voltage EV batteries – a significant future application for the technology.”

With submissions open for 6 weeks, submit an abstract to join ELBC’s technical program via the ELBC website

Companies can also reserve an expo stand and enhance their visibility with sponsorship packages

Keep an eye on the conference website and our social channels for further details on the program, speakers, gala dinner and delegate registration.
