About the Symposium

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are promising systems for clean and efficient power generation from a variety of fuels including hydrocarbons and renewable-/coal-derived fuels. Advanced SOFC systems are being developed for various applications, e.g. centralized/distributed stationary power generation, automotive auxiliary powers, and portable devices. Significant progress has been made in the areas of materials, cell/stack designs, component fabrication, simulation, fuel processing, and systems operation. Major R&D focus continues to be on new materials design, performance enhancement, degradation mitigation, and cost reduction. The SOFC developments have also raised the interest to solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) for electrochemical fuel synthesis.

This meeting is a continuation of the highly successful “Asian SOFC Symposium,” which has taken place six times in the past. It is intended to bring together scientists and engineers working on SOFCs and related technologies to present recent progress and to exchange ideas and information. The 6th Asian SOFC Symposium and Exhibition will be held in Jeju, Korea, from November 1 to 4, 2020. It will serve as a valuable forum for the discussion of SOFC technologies and related topics through a variety of formats, such as oral presentations, poster sessions, and exhibits.
