ICEnSM 2017. 2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials, Shenzhen, China, November 18-21, 2017

The First International Conference on Energy Storage Materials

The First International Conference on Energy Storage Materials (ICEnSM 2017) was held in Shenzhen, the innovative city of China, on 18-21 November 2017. ICEnSM is a unique conference series initiated by the editors of a new Journal, Energy Storage Materials, published by Elsevier (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/energy-storage-materials), and Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, co-founded by Tsinghua University and University of California at Berkeley.

This conference featured world-class plenary speakers, keynote speakers, and oral/poster presentations. 

Energy Storage Materials was requesting written nominations from the international community for its 2017 Energy Storage Materials Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize an outstanding scientist in the field of energy storage and conversion materials and devices who has made significant contribution and whose work shows significant innovation in the field. The award was presented at this Conference, and the winner will be asked to give a plenary lecture at this conference and to write a paper related to his/her lecture for Energy Storage Materials. In addition, the Best Paper Award, the Most Cited Paper Award, and the Excellent Reviewer Awards in 2016 was conferred at the conference as well.

professor Yury GogotsiProfessor Yury Gogotsi from Drexel University, USA, has won the 2017 Energy Storage Materials Award, which is awarded by the journal Energy Storage Materials. The Award was presented to Professor Gogotsi at the ICEnSM 2017 (2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials) on November 21, 2017.

Professor Yury Gogotsi is receiving his award from Energy Storage Materials journal editors Drs. Hui-Ming Chen and Francois Beguin.

The award, which is sponsored by Elsevier, gives special recognition to a person who has accomplished outstanding achievements in energy storage materials and devices. At the 2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials Professor Yury Gogotsi  also gave a Keyneote lecture on Multidimensional Materials and Electrode Architectures for High-Rate Hybrid (Faradic+Capacitive) Energy Storage.

Professor Yury Gogotsi gave a Keyneote lecture on Multidimensional Materials and Electrode Architectures for High-Rate Hybrid (Faradic+Capacitive) Energy Storage.

Professor Yury Gogotsi is recognized as one of the leaders in materials for electrochemical capacitors. His seminal work on carbon nanomaterials helped to better understand the mechanisms of capacitive energy storage. He introduced new materials to the field, such as carbon onions, and invented new technologies, such as electrochemical flow capacitors. Professor Gogotsi's recent work has concentrated on development of a new family of two-dimensional transition metal carbides and nitrides (MXenes), which he and his colleagues at Drexel University discovered in 2011. He is the author of over 500 of refereed journal papers and co-inventor of more than 60 inventions with patents issued or filed. He has an H-index of 92/109 (Web of Science/Google Scholar) and was recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher by Thomson-Reuters/Clarivate Analytics in 2014-2017. Dr. Gogotsi is Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Professor, Distinguished University Professor and Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute at Drexel University. He is also a Distinguished Foreign Professor at Jilin University, China.
