AIMS AND SCOPE
Following in the footsteps of previous Metal-Hydrogen conferences, which date back to 1977, the 18th International Symposium on Metal-Hydrogen Systems, MH2024, will be held in the beautiful city of Saint-Malo, in French Brittany, at the Palais du Grand Large, on 26 to 31 May 2024.
Saint-Malo is a historical walled city, holding a protected port for corsairs. It is 55 km away from Le Mont Saint-Michel and 400 km from Paris.
Today, hydrogen is recognised worldwide as a key player in the decarbonisation of the energy sector. Considered the ultimate energy carrier, its unique physical and chemical properties allow it to bind to almost every element on the periodic table, giving rise to a wide variety of hydrogen-containing compounds and materials.
MH2024 aims to bring together more than 400 researchers to exchange on the fundamental principles of the interaction between hydrogen and matter, as well as their potential applications. The meeting will benefit from the presence of industrial partners and government representatives, who contribute to give a high momentum to the development of hydrogen technologies.
MH2024 will undoubtedly lead to the discovery of new material-hydrogen systems, with expected applications, among others, on hydrogen storage, compression, purification, transport and sensing, as well as electrochemical devices.
We look forward to welcoming you to Saint-Malo. Don’t hesitate to submit a contribution for an oral or a poster presentation.
PROGRAM AND TOPICS
The program of the conference will consist in plenary, invited and oral contributions, as well as friendly poster sessions that will be all held in the Palais Grand Large.
The topics of this symposium will cover the fundamentals of synthesis, structure, thermodynamics, kinetics, catalysis, surface effects and physical properties of materials, taking into account all classes of hydrogen-related materials (metal and complex hydrides, as well as chemical, organic and nanoporous materials), including liquid storage carriers such as ammonia and LOHC.
This conference is a major opportunity to present your latest research work to the wider scientific community on hydrogen-materials systems.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This Symposium will bring together a range of Metal-Hydrogen professionals including:
• Industry and Government representatives
The conference will be co-chaired by Fermin CUEVAS (CNRS-UPEC, ICMPE, France) and Yaroslav FILINCHUK (UCL, Belgium) under the hospices of the MH International Steering Committee.
The construction of the scientific programme will be supported by a broad international scientific committee. A local technical committee will ensure the reception and social activities of the participants
