International Symposium on Materials Issues in Hydrogen Production and Storage

DATES: August 20-25, 2006
LOCATION: University of California, Santa Barbara CA 93106 USA

The International Center for Materials Research at the University of California Santa Barbara will host an International Symposium to address materials problems in two major areas of basic research aimed at utilization of hydrogen as a fuel, namely in the production and storage of hydrogen. The program will consist of invited talks presenting overviews and covering the current status of selected areas from forefront research in hydrogen production and storage. All participants are encouraged to submit abstracts for contributed papers. Some of the contributions will be upgraded to oral presentations. Instructions for abstract submission are posted below. Attendance will be limited in order to maximize interaction among participants.
