Welcome to the website of the International Conference on Advanced Lithium Batteries for Automotive Applications (ABAA5).
As the Chairman of ABAA Conference Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the 5th International ABAA conference.
Every year, This conference host distinguished speakers from all over the world in the field of lithium battery research and development with focus on automotive applications.
Our primary goal is to provide our attendees from both academia and industry an opportunity to meet and exchange information on the advances in lithium battery with the aim of enabling electrification of vehicles. This year the conference will focus on;
•New cell chemistries (cathode, anode, electrolyte and electrolyte additives);
•Power and capacity fade mechanism of lithium-ion batteries;
•Advanced design for low cost materials and processes;
•Component- and system-level safety mechanisms and novel techniques to improve the abuse tolerance;
•Understanding the performance limitation at low temperatures from the chemistry and system level;
•New lithium battery systems.
We are looking forward to meeting you in İstanbul, a fascinating city, located between Europe and Asia. I believe you will find in this city a rich and magnificient blend of history, culture, arts, architecture and cuisine of both Europe and Asia We look forward to welcoming you in Istanbul on September 17-20, 2012.

Environmental pollution and the looming energy crisis have been attracting significant concerns worldwide. Much of the criticism has been directed to the consumption of fossil fuels and the greenhouse gases emitted by automobiles, which consume almost 45% of all fossil fuels produced. The huge amount of the carbon dioxide emitted by automobiles is also highly blamed for the global warming.
Recently, there has been a worldwide active effort to develop hybrid electrical vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) to effectively reduce the consumption of fossil fuels in the transportation sector.
Among the available battery technologies, lithium-ion batteries have the highest capacity density and energy density, and are promising candidates for energy storage devise for HEV and PHEV with improved energy efficiency.
However, the key technological barriers that hinder the commercial practice of lithium-ion batteries for HEV and PHEV are their high cost, not enough calendar and cycle life, limited low temperature performance during cold cranking and intrinsic abuse tolerance.
Realizing the significant technological challenges of lithium batteries for transportation applications, organizers from U.S.A., Japan and Korea jointly initiated the International Conference on Advanced Lithium Batteries for Automobile Applications with the mission to:
Enhance the global effort on the R&D of advanced lithium batteries for automobile applications; Accelerate the discussion and communication of R&D progress, achievement and problems; and Further strengthen the global collaboration in this important and challenging field.
The topics of the 5th International Conference will focus on:
New cell chemistries (cathode, anode, electrolyte and electrolyte additives);
Power and capacity fade mechanism of lithium-ion batteries;
Advanced design for low cost materials and processes;
Component- and system-level safety mechanisms and novel techniques to improve the abuse tolerance;
Understanding the performance limitation at low temperatures from the chemistry and system level;
New lithium battery systems.
