 Technical Session Co-Chair Orientation

 All technical session co-chairs will be contacted via email with instructions prior to the meeting.  Please check in with the ECS Headquarters Staff in Iolani 1, Level 2, Tapa Conference Center on the day of your session to receive information on the cancelled papers for the day and to pick up attendance sheets.  We also ask that you complete and return the attendance sheets to ECS Headquarters to help us with future symposium planning.  Attendance sheets will be sent via email in advance, and will also be available in the ECS Headquarters Office throughout the week.

 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 X 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 a written request to the 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. Please do not begin setting up your poster until all the poster boards have been numbered.  Plan your display to fit on one upright panel approximately 8 feet wide by 4 feet tall. 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. The sponsoring Societies 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.

Speaker-Ready Room

Two Speaker‑Ready Rooms will be available Sunday through Friday located in the Mid Pacific Conference Center Office 1 and in the South Pacific Boardroom, Level 2, Kalia Executive Conference Center . These rooms are available to allow speakers the opportunity to preview their transparencies and prepare for their presentations. We highly recommend that speakers verify their laptop’s compatibility with the sample LCD projector that will be located in this room, prior to their presentation.  Additionally, there will be audiovisual technician tables located at stations outside the meeting rooms for your assistance.

Speaker Indemnification

The ideas and opinions expressed in the technical sessions, conferences, and any handout materials provided are those of the presenter. They are not those of the sponsoring Societies, nor can any endorsement by the Sponsoring Societies be claimed.

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 the publication of the article.

Note

Photographing of presentations will be permitted unless specifically prohibited by the speaker. PHOTO FLASH AND PHOTO FLOODS ARE PROHIBITED. TAPE RECORDINGS, EXCEPT ON BEHALF OF THE SPONSORING SOCIETIES, ARE PROHIBITED.

Employment Services

There will be a special bulletin board in the registration area for employment posters. Companies desiring to recruit employees are requested to place their announcements on this special board. Please note that these announcements should be no larger than 8 ½" x 11".

In addition, the Mid Pacific Conference Office 2, located on the sixth floor of the Mid Pacific Conference Center will be available as an Employment Interview Room from 0800 to 1700 Monday through Friday.
