Dr. Valerie Eveloy is Professor of mechanical engineering at Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. She holds a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering (Dublin City University, Ireland) and a M.Sc. degree in physical engineering (National Institute of Applied Science, France). She has over twenty years academic and industrial experience in mechanical and energy engineering. Prior to joining Khalifa University, she was with The Petroleum Institute (now part of Khalifa University), the University of Maryland-College Park, and Nokia. She has led several sponsored research projects on sustainable and renewable energy technologies (including waste energy utilization, solid oxide fuel cell/electrolysis systems, power-to-gas, multi-generation, energy-efficiency enhancement of seawater desalination), and has actively published in these areas in leading journals. She is currently serving as Topic Editor for several journal special issues focusing on sustainable energy topics including power-to-X, and as special session organizer/chair including on topics including sustainable power, cooling and water systems for hot climates at international energy conferences. She has received several research awards including the Academic of Distinction Leadership Excellence for Women Award (LEWA) recognizing professional excellence in women in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) regional energy sector in 2017. Dr. Eveloy is a member of several international conference program committees focused on energy technologies and electronics thermal management, and a member of ASME.

Assoc. Prof. Mehmet Suha Yazici is currently Chief Research Scientist at Energy Institute of TUBITAK Marmara Research Center. He has lectured at Gebze Technical University (2008/2012) and Bahcesehir University (2012) on electrochemical energy conversion, hydrogen and fuel cell systems. His professional experience includes UNIDO (Istanbul, Turkey (2007-2012), GrafTech International (Cleveland, USA (2001-2007), Procter & Gamble (P&G, Cincinnati, USA (1998-2001) and AIST National Laboratories (Osaka, Japan (1997-1998). He has several patents/publications on electrochemical systems in power generation and energy storage. He has been representing TUBITAK MRC at European Commission, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Joint Undertaking, Hydrogen Europe. He is also organizational liaison for European Energy Research Alliance (EERA), Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Group. He is an active member of The Electrochemical Society (ECS), the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) and International Association of Hydrogen Energy (IAHE.
Prof. Nouredine FENINECHE has obtained his PhD Thesis in Mechanical Engineering and Materials from the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC), France. He is Head of Additive Manufacturing and Powders Research Group, Head of International Relations Mechanical Engineering and Design Department.
His scientific production more than 120 papers in international reviews journals (refereed Journals), 115 international conferences reviewed and proceedings and more than 35 international conferences with personal invitation.
His main Research activities and expertise are focused on: New metal hydrides for hydrogen storage using both Ab initio calculations and experimental elaboration. Elaboration of Nanomaterials for IT-SOFC Fuel Cells. Magnetic thin films for Sensors and actuators. DMS materials for spintronic applications, Amorphous and Nanocrystalline Coatings intended for magnetic shielding using HVOF and cold spraying, Magnetic materials processed by Selective laser Melting SLM and 3D printing.
Dr. David CHAPELLE is an Associate Professor in materials and mechanical engineering at The FEMTO ST Institute, part of Bourgogne Franche-Comté University, in Besançon, France. He holds a Ph.D. in Material Sciences (Mines Saint-Etienne, Jean-Monnet University, France) and he obtained accreditation to conduct research (HDR, in 2013) in Engineering Sciences and Microtechnologies (Franche-Comté University, France). He has over fifteen years academic and industrial experience in mechanical engineering, material sciences. He performed extensive research on mechanical response of composite materials and their prediction especially on the problem of structural design. Since ten years, he also studies the physical and mechanical behavior of metallic materials while submitted to hydrogen gas. Motivation of this research lies on the hydrogen storage application whether it is to store the gas under compressed form or the so-called solid form. He has authored or co-authored over 40 refereed journal and conference publications. He is a member of several national and international conference program committees focused on mechanical topics.
In 2008, with three colleagues, he co-founded the company MAHYTEC for Materials Hydrogen TEChnology which aims at promoting and developing hydrogen storage solutions and more generally hydrogen systems. He acts as a scientific advisor for over ten years and is involved in several development and research projects.
