23rd World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC-2022)

23rd World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC-2022) was held in Istanbul, Turkey, between June 26-30, 2022. It was a multi-disciplinary international conference hosted by the International Association for Hydrogen Energy.  WHEC-2022 included both inspiring technical programs as well as enjoyable social events. The technical part of the WHEC-2022 included sessions where plenary, keynote, invited and general speakers delivered talks on their work and research in hydrogen energy.


In the organization of WHEC-2022, Dr. C. Ozgur Colpan and Dr. M. Akif Ezan (from DEU Mechanical Eng. Dpt.) tool role as the Technical Chairs. Yağmur Nalbant Atak, Sera Ayten Çetinkaya, Tacettin Dişli, Beyza Dursun, Anıl Erdoğan, and Aykut Korkmaz (from DEU) helped in the organization as Graduate Student Volunteers.
