Volunteer for six hours at the 231st ECS Meeting and receive a FREE meeting registration!
As a student volunteer, you will work closely with the ECS staff and gain first-hand experience in what it takes to execute an ECS biannual meeting.
Take advantage of the opportunity to network and engage with meeting attendees, symposium organizers, and ECS staff while learning how registration operates, technical sessions run, and how major meeting programs are facilitated. In addition to hands-on experience, volunteers will also receive a meeting t-shirt, a complimentary ticket to the student mixer and a certificate of participation.
Multilingual speakers are highly encouraged to apply!
Deadline for application submissions: Friday, April 21
Candidates notified: Tuesday, April 25
NOTE: If you do not complete the six hours of work on-site, you will be invoiced for the full registration fee. We will do our best to accommodate the hours you have listed as being available but this is not a guarantee. Each volunteer position will require interaction with the attendees, long periods of standing, and foot-traffic flow management. If you are unwilling or unable to complete these tasks please make us aware upon submitting your application.
ECS is providing an opportunity for new authors to ask questions and get educated about ECS’s publications.
Join us at an author information session at the 231st ECS Meeting in New Orleans, LA. The session will provide insight into opportunities for publishing with ECS regarding the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology, ECS Meeting Abstracts, ECS Transactions, and monographs.
We will also educate authors on:
- the journal’s continuous publication model and the types of articles published by ECS,
- how to publish open access and how ECS’s Free the Science initiative supports open access for authors,
- where their content is accessible after publication.
The session is being held Tuesday, May 30, 1700-1800h in the Chequers room of the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. Check the meeting scheduler.
P.S. Unable to attend? Stop by the ECS exhibit booth to connect one-on-one with ECS staff.

ECS is sponsoring the 1st International Semiconductor Conference for Global Challenges in Nanjing, China, July 16-17, 2017. Abstracts for this conference are due by May 1, 2017.
The conference aims to unite scientists around the world, fostering the exchange of ideas and addressing the global challenges and opportunities in semiconductor science and technology. Topics are set to span a wide spectrum of semiconductor researcher, focusing on five main topics: materials growth and characterization, electronic devices and applications, optoelectronic devices and applications, power devices and applications, and energy devices and systems.
“This conference features some of the top minds in semiconductor science and technology and provides a great opportunity for ECS to connect with researchers and bolster this field, say Roque Calvo, ECS executive director and member of the conference’s program committee. “It plays a significant role in addressing global concerns ranging from information security to energy infrastructure.”
The 2017 ECS Twin Cities Section Symposium will take place Friday, April 7 in Saint Paul, MN. Attendance is free and includes talks, lunch, and the Innovation Center Tour showing hundreds of 3M technologies, and a poster session.

Electrochemically Silent Films on Electrodes – Means and Methods
Electrochemically inert films on electrodes alter properties of transport, selectivity, and kinetics to enable new devices and measurement methods. Examples include: density gradient polymers, which establish near steady state transport to the electrode surface and modification of Nafion® with triflate ligands in common organic solvents to enable voltammetry of lanthanide species.
Symposium H01: State-of-the-Art Program on Compound Semiconductors 60 (SOTAPOCS 60)
Originating at the 166th ECS Meeting in New Orleans in 1984, the State-of-the-Art Program on Compound Semiconductors will be held for the 60th time at the upcoming ECS Meeting in National Harbor, MD, taking place from October 1-6, 2017. Don’t miss out on this anniversary event, make sure to submit your abstract no later than April 7, 2017.
Focus: Compound semiconductors are a significant enabler of numerous optoelectronic, high-speed, power, and sensor devices. The SOTAPOCS 60 symposium will address the most recent developments in inorganic compound semiconductor technology.
ECS is a sponsor of the 68th Annual Meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) being held August 27 – September 1, 2017 in Providence, Rhode Island.
The scientific theme of the meeting is Electrochemistry without Borders, meant to emphasize the global character of the electrochemical community encompassed by the ISE.
ECS is continuing its partnership with ISE and will be presenting a symposium on “Education for Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering” covering present and future trends in electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering education at undergraduate and/or graduate levels.
Also, ECS President Krishnan Rajeshwar from The University of Texas at Arlington will be presenting “Photoelectrochemistry, Solid-State Chemistry, and Solar Fuels: A Nexus?” at this meeting.
Please visit the conference website for more information and to submit your abstract before March 22.
