International summer school on materials for  energy storage and conversion(mESC-IS School 2021)  is an integral part of  the symposium held with the same name ( International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, mESC-IS 2021).   The summer school, will take place 10-13 September  2021 preceding   the symposium. The school will take place both  in virtual and face-to-face modes  at Mugla Sıtkı Koçman University .

The school  follows the structure of the earlier schools (mESC-School 2015 , mESC-School 2017, and mESC-School 2019 ) and aims to bring  new comers/early researchers with those experienced in the field. The school covers the state-of-the-art reviews in selected topics plus in depth coverage of materials and electrochemical characterization techniques.

Some of the topics to be covered in the school is listed below.  Topics  to be covered are currently being re-shaped. Additional names and topics to be added soon.
