Dear Colleagues

We cordially invite you to the 9th Symposium on Fuel Cell and Battery Modeling and Experimental Validation (ModVal 9), which will be held on 2-4 April 2012 in Sursee, located in the heart of Switzerland.

This symposium is the 9th in the series of annual events initiated in 2004 by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. Taking place yearly in spring, the symposium alternates locations between Switzerland and Germany.

Attendance is about 100 participants from academia and industry in European countries, USA and Canada. The symposium provides an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas, discuss new approaches and initiate international collaborations. The organizers kindly invites you to share your work with the community at ModVal 9 in April 2012.

The symposium is focused on advances in modeling and experimental validation of all fuel cell types and rechargeable batteries.

We look forward to seeing you in Sursee.
