PUMA MIND Workshop 2015 in conjunction with ModVal 12

PUMA MIND is organising its second annual workshop in the afternoon of 26 March 2015 in Freiburg, Germany. The main objective of the event is to present recent advances in multiscale modeling for PEMFC and follows from the first workshop organised in 2014 in Grenoble, France. 

The workshop is organised in conjunction with the 12th Symposium for Fuel Cell and Battery Modeling and Experimental Validation (ModVal 12). ModVal registered registered delegates are entitled to free access to the PUMA MIND Workshop. 

ModVal's symposium aims are fully aligned with PUMA MIND as its programme is designed to present and discuss recent advances related to the mathematical modeling and computational simulation of fuel cells and batteries, as well as experimental techniques for model validation. The symposium provides a forum for researchers from both academia and industry, promoting personal contacts and stimulating new collaborations.

The PUMA MIND workshop is chaired by Dr Kourosh Malek (Simon Fraser University, Canada) and its programme is as follows:

13:30-14:10 Some analytical solutions for PEM fuel cell characterization in aging studies (Keynote Lecture) 

   Dr Andrei Kulikovsky 
   Research Centre Juelich, Germany    

14:10-14:30 Multiscale coupling of degradation mechanisms for durability prediction

   Prof Wolfgang Bessler
   Hochschule Offenburg, University of Applied Sciences, Germany

14:30-14:50 Modelling Internal Currents during Fuel Cell Start-up and Shut-down

   Prof Olivier Lottin

14:50-15:10 Coupling experiments and models to interpret and predict degradation in low temperature fuel cell

   Prof Andrea Casalegno
   Department of Energy, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

15:10-15:30 Novel Approach in 3D-Reconstructions of PEMFC Catalyst Layers:  Infiltration aided Segmentation
