Welcome

Welcome to San Antonio – a city that captures the spirit of Texas and will be the site of the 205th Meeting of The Electrochemical Society. San Antonio has retained its sense of history and tradition, and has always been known as a crossroads and a meeting place. This marks the Society’s second visit to San Antonio ; we are pleased to venture to this city again. This major international conference will be held at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter, located in downtown San Antonio on the famous Riverwalk, and will include 41 topical symposia consisting of 943 technical presentations.  

You are invited to participate not only in the technical program, but also in the other social events planned for the meeting. Prior to the Sunday Evening Get-Together, plan to attend the latest in our series of Sunday general topics,”Transistors and Integrated Circuits for the Rest of Us,” this one presented by Howard Huff of Sematech. Don’t miss the opening plenary session on Monday morning, featuring Jeff Dahn of Dalhousie University . Join us on Wednesday to honor Richard C. Alkire of the University of Illinois , the 2004 Vittorio de Nora Award winner at the Honors and Awards Session. Later on Wednesday evening, all meeting registrants are cordially invited to attend the Vittorio de Nora Award reception held in Dr. Alkire’s honor. 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 San Antonio , TX , and take part in the 205th Meeting of The Electrochemical Society.

Information for Speakers and Audio Visual

All presentations (oral and poster) must be in English. LCD and overhead projectors will be available for oral presentations. Authors will be required to bring their own laptop computers for presentation, and we suggest that presenting authors verify laptop/projector compatibility in the speaker ready room at the meeting. Poster presentations will be displayed in English, on a board approximately 4 ft by 8 ft (1.22 m by 2.45 m), corresponding to their abstract number and day of presentation in the final program. Speakers requiring special equipment must make written request to ECS headquarters prior to the meeting and appropriate arrangements will be made at the expense of the author.

Poster Sessions  

For those authors presenting posters, please arrive approximately two hours in advance of the start of your session to begin setting up your poster displays.

Present displayed information from left to right, starting at the top left of the panel. The paper title, number, names, and affiliations of all authors MUST be at the top of the display. The recommended print size for the title is approximately 1 to 2" (2.5 cm to 5 cm) high. Authors should minimize written text but use it when necessary to emphasize essential data and/or to stimulate discussion. Posters must be written in English. All illustrations, drawings, charts, pictures, graphs, figures, and written text should be large enough to allow easy reading from a distance of 5' (1.5 m). Matted and finished photographs are recommended to enhance visibility. Pins, tape, and/or thumbtacks will be supplied at the meeting. Commercial advertisements or publicity will NOT be permitted in poster presentations. Authors violating this regulation will be asked to remove their presentations immediately. Authors are responsible for setting up their displays, for being present during the entire scheduled poster session, and for removing their displays at the conclusion of the poster session. No posters will be displayed without author participation. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE GRANTED. Authors are responsible for the security of their displays and all items of value. ECS will not assume any responsibility for lost, stolen, or broken articles. Additional information or special requirements should be addressed to the individual symposium organizers prior to the meeting.

Discussion

No recording will be made of the oral discussions. Those contributing to the discussion of a paper and desiring their remarks to be published should send the discussion to the Director of Publications, Journal of The Electrochemical Society, 65 South Main Street , Pennington , New Jersey 08534‑2839, USA . The discussion will then be referred to the author for a reply. Publication of the discussion and the comments of the author(s) depend on the publication of the paper in the Journal. Written discussion of a published paper should be submitted within two months following publication of the article.
