Liquid Salts for Energy and Materials – oral deadline 7 September

Liquid Salts for Energy and Materials Faraday Discussion 11-13 May 2016 Ningbo, China


We hope you will be able to join us for the Faraday Discussions meeting on Liquid Salts for Energy and Materials taking place in Ningbo, China from 11–13 May, 2016 which will cover the following themes:

  • Benefits to energy efficiency and environmental impact
  • Improvements of energy conversion and storage
  • Developments for nuclear reactors and spent fuels processing
  • Advancement in knowledge of phenomena and processes

The papers presented and a record of the discussions at the meeting will be published in the corresponding volume of Faraday Discussions.

We are pleased to announce the oral/paper abstract deadline is now 7 September 2015.


Submit your abstract today!


You can find more details on our website about what makes Faraday Discussions different from other meetings.
