Welcome

Welcome to Paris – the French, capital which is rich in monuments, art galleries, museums, and history.  Marking the Society’s second visit to both Europe and Paris, we are pleased to venture to this magnificent city for a second time. This major international conference will be held at the world-renowned Palais des Congres de Paris and will include the largest program in the history of ECS consisting of 2,939 presentations in 57 topical symposia.  

You are invited to participate not only in the technical program or one of the four short courses, but also in the other social events planned for the meeting.  Plan to attend the traditional Sunday Evening Get-Together upon your arrival to the meeting.  Don’t miss the opening plenary session on Monday morning, featuring Gerd Binnig of IBM Zurich Research; the very first Gerischer Award winner, Akira Fujishima of the University of Tokyo; and the 2003 Solid State Award Address given by the medallist, Richard B. Fair of Duke University. All meeting registrants are cordially invited to attend the Solid State Award reception on Wednesday evening to honor Dr. Fair.  As always, you will also have the opportunity to visit the Technical Exhibit, which opens in conjunction with the Monday Evening Mixer and General Student Poster Session on Monday evening, continues with the General Society Poster Session on Tuesday evening, and runs through Wednesday afternoon. 

We hope that you will join us in Paris, France, and take part in 203rd Meeting of The Electrochemical Society.
