This conference was initiated by Prof. Murugan and the first event took place in the Bay of Bengal in honor of Prof. Weppnerꞌs 75th birthday with the objective to share and discuss cutting-edge research and to collectively establish near and long-term visions for research in the field of solid-state battery technology. Since then, this conference takes place every 2 years worldwide. After successful events in India, Japan, and USA this conference will now take place in Tromsø, Norway. Including invited speakers, we expect around 150 delegates at this event.
