Welcome Message

The Organizing Committee of Hyceltec 2017 - VI Symposium on Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and Advanced Batteries, has the pleasure of inviting you to come to Porto (Portugal), to participate in this scientific meeting, which will be held from June 19th to June 23rd, 2017.

The Hyceltec Symposium series started in 2008, in Bilbao-Spain, and continued in Vila-Real - Portugal (2009), Zaragoza - Spain (2011), Estoril - Portugal (2013) and Tenerife - Spain (2015). Initially targeting especially the Iberian region, Hyceltec 2017 became truly international. This edition will be hosted in Porto, the worldwide known "Port Wine" city. We are sure that the event will live up to your expectations.

Hyceltec 2017 aims at covering topics related to fuel cells, hydrogen and batteries, bringing together scientists from academic research, applied research and industry. We strongly believe in the great opportunity that all participants will have to meet each other, exchange ideas and, hopefully, initiate collaborations.

The scientific program will feature plenary lectures given by distinguished researchers from Academia&Industry, keynote lectures, oral and panel presentations. Also a special session devoted to the presentation of some leading international projects in the area will be allocated. In addition, decision makers from the EU Commission and Companies will also be invited. The oral sessions will be organized according to selected topics, each one introduced by a keynote lecture. To encourage poster contributions, a flash oral presentation will be organized and a continuous poster session will stimulate discussions throughout the conference. A number of awards for young presenters will be attributed to the best oral and poster contributions.

As usual in the Hyceltec conference series, selected papers will be published in special issues of the "Electrochimica Acta" and "International Journal of Hydrogen Energy“ Journals. Finally, we are strongly committed to complement the scientific program with an appealing social programme, either for the delegates or for the accompanying persons, to provide you with a taste of the genuine Portuguese hospitality and make your stay in Porto a remarkable experience.

With kind regards

José M. Sousa (Chair)
