AABC Returns to Asia
AABC’s events bring together a global audience of chief battery technologists from leading automotive OEMs and their key suppliers to present development trends, share breakthrough technologies, and project the scope of the market for years to come.
We are excited to return to Japan in 2018 with an event that promises to build on the success of our US and European events, while focusing on the unique drivers, needs, and challenges of the diverse Asian market.
With sessions spanning research and development findings in novel battery chemistries and new approaches to cell and pack engineering, as well as applied technologies in the next generation of electric and hybrid vehicles, AABC Asia is an invaluable opportunity to discover the latest trends, technology and market information. The Call for Papers will open in January.
