Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is one of America's most beautiful cities. The bustling downtown area is centered around a mile-long pedestrian promenade that is lined with outdoor cafes and flower baskets and has mountain views down every street. We are pleased to venture into this city again for the 209th ECS Meeting. This major international conference will be held at the Adam’s Mark Hotel and will include 38 topical symposia consisting of 1,282 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, "Bio/Nanoscience and Electrochemistry… for the Rest of Us,” this one presented by Charles R. Martin, Colonel Allen R. and Margaret G. Crow Professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida and the Director of UF’s Center for Research at the Bio/Nano Interface. Don’t miss the opening plenary session on Monday morning, featuring Dr. Ralph Overend, Research Fellow of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Join us on Wednesday to honor Dr. Florian Mansfeld, the 2006 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. Mansfeld’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, continues with the General Society Poster Session on Tuesday evening, and runs through Wednesday afternoon. We hope that you will join us in Denver, and take part in the 209th ECS Meeting.
