Symposium and Scope of ModVal 2019 – 16th Symposium on Modeling and Experimental Validation of Electrochemical Energy Technologies on March 12th & 13th, 2019

ModVal 2019 is the 16th event in a series of annual international Symposia on modeling and experimental validation of electrochemical energy technologies. 

The aim of the symposium is to present and discuss recent advances in science and technology that are related to the modelling and simulation of fuel cells, batteries and other electrochemical energy cells as well as to the respective experimental techniques for model validation. The symposium provides a forum for researchers in both academia and industry, promoting personal contacts and stimulating new collaborations.
