Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce Symposium B of the E-MRS 2018 Spring Meeting: "Theoretical searches for innovative materials for energy harvesting and storage", to be held in Strasbourg (France) from June 18th to 22nd, 2018.

The symposium aims to bring together researchers in all aspects of theoretical discovery of materials for energy applications, to exchange achievements and develop future collaborations. We would like this symposium to become an interdisciplinary meeting point for an unusual blend of researchers working on solid crystals, organic liquids, and pure methodology. Different sessions will target specific applications, including but not limited to: batteries and other electrochemical devices, hydrogen storage, carbon capture, solar power, small scale energy harvesting/scavenging (thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics…)

List of invited speakers:

S. Curtarolo (Duke University, Durham, USA),
R. Ramprasad (University of Illinois, USA),
C. Wolverton (Northwestern University, Evanston, USA),
J. Even (INSA-Rennes, CNRS, France),
F. Giustino (University of Oxford, UK),
A. De Vita (King’s College, London, UK),
A. Igartua, (TEKNIKER, Spain),
C. Massobrio (IPCMS-CNRS, Strasbourg, France)

All interested researchers are invited to participate. Abstracts can be submitted before the deadline of January 18, 2018. More information can be found at the web page of the symposium:


Proceedings will be published in a special issue of Computational Materials Science (Elsevier). This symposium is supported by the European Energy oriented Centre of Excellence (EoCoE), grant agreement number 676629, funded within the Horizon2020 framework programme of the European Union.
