Call for Papers

As both a forum and an expo, the Asian Battery Conference and Exhibition (ABC)
continues to be the premier battery industry event in Asia.

The ABC program provides opportunities for international experts to report on the most recent developments and research achievements in the design, manufacture and application of lead–acid batteries.

We are calling for papers from battery industry executives, customers, marketers, academia, researchers, sales teams, reseller networks, and suppliers.

Please note: There will not be a concurrent session room running on Wednesday afternoon.

Selection Criteria

Papers will be accepted on the basis of quality of abstract, originality, technical relevance and advancement of current practice. The decision will be made by the Program Committee and its decision will be final.


All sessions will be presented in plenary style. There will not be a concurrent stream on Wednesday.
