The 5th Polish Forum SMART ENERGY conversion & storage, together with 14th Symposium on Fast Ionic Conductors will take place in Bialka Tatrzanska, from 22nd to 25th of September 2015. The conference is co-organized by Polish Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Association (hydrogen.edu.pl) and AGH University of Science and Technology.

The Conference scope includes: fuel cells, hydrogen production and storage, Li-ion and Na-ion batteries, supercapacitors, solar conversion and thermoelectrics. All these topics are highly important for modern energy conversion and storage. Albeit different, they are based on similar mass and charge transport mechanisms, related to ionic and electronic defect structure. This brought the idea of gathering of high-level specialists, including theoreticians, in this field.

The conference place, Bialka Tatrzanska, is located in a picturesque place near the alpine-type Tatra Mountains. The natural beauty of the Tatras is the main attraction of the venue and in September there are long periods of beautiful sunny, stable weather. We will arrange hiking along mountain trails in a small guided groups. We hope you would enjoy the environment.



Transport: The easiest way to get to the Forum Venue from Kraków is to follow the DK7 road:
