We invite you to join us at the ninth International Flow Battery Forum in Lausanne, Switzerland. Lausanne is a beautiful city steeped in history with a gothic cathedral, situated between Lake Geneva, and the Jura mountains.  This is the area of the Lavaux vineyard terraces, recognised by UNESCO and given world heritage status.  Lausanne is also the home of the International Olympic Committee. 

The IFBF will be held in the SwissTech Convention Centre, at EPFL.  This is a top class convention centre which is directly linked to Lausanne's excellent public transport system.  There is a hotel adjacent to the Convention Centre, other hotels within a 15 minute walk and numerous hotel options in the City and surrounding area. 

The 2018 IFBF meeting brings together all those interested in research, academia, development, manufacturing, commercialisation, and deployment of flow batteries to join in a three day conference which includes keynote presentations, oral presentations, panel discussions and poster sessions.  We place emphasis on creating network opportunities including an evening reception and academic industry visit.
