Dear Colleagues,
You are cordially invited to attend the International Conference on "Energy materials research using neutron and synchrotron radiation" to be held on July 27 to July 30, 2009 in Berlin, Germany and organized jointly by Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie and Bragg Institute of Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation. From a fundamental standpoint, many of the same phenomena are common to hydrogen storage materials, electrolyte and electrode materials, fuel cells and solar cell materials and the meeting is planed to address the questions: where is the energy carrier, how does it move and what are the interactions that determine storage or transport properties? Understanding the underlying processes requires a simultaneous access to the proper length and time scales which can be selected by different neutron and synchrotron scattering techniques. The scope of the conference is to explore the pertinent properties of sustainable energy materials by interdisciplinary approach, how neutron and synchrotron radiation can contribute to this field and determine future research directions.  Modelling, either to deeper understanding of experimental data, or in the prediction of new materials from these data is an important aspect of the sustainable energy field and will also be part of the conference. Preparation methods etc. will not be dealt with.

The topics of the conference are anticipated to address some of the following areas:
·        Solar cells
·        Hydrogen storage systems
·        Energy storage batteries, ultracapacitors, and hydrogen/fuel cells
·        Energy-efficient building technologies
·        Fast ionic conductors and electrolytes

The proceedings will be published in a refereed journal.
