Call for Papers
Last update: 01/15/2007
The 212th Meeting of The Electrochemical Society will be held October 7-12, 2007. This major international conference offers a unique blend of electrochemical and solid-state science and technology; and serves as a major forum for the discussion of interdisciplinary research from around the world through a variety of formats, such as oral presentations, poster sessions, exhibits, and tutorial sessions.
Submit one original meeting abstract electronically via www.electrochem.org, no later than May 18, 2007. Faxed abstracts, late abstracts, and abstracts more than one page in length will not be accepted. In July 2007, all presenting authors will receive an e-mail from the ECS headquarters office notifying them of the date and time of their presentation. Only authors with a non-U.S. address will receive a hardcopy acceptance letter. Other hardcopy letters will be sent only upon request.
Note: Some abstracts are due earlier than May 18, 2007. Please carefully check symposium listing for any alternate abstract submission deadlines. For complete details on abstract submission and symposium topics, please see www.electrochem.org.
Meeting abstracts should explicitly state objectives, new results, and conclusions or significance of the work. Abstracts must be properly formatted and no more than one page in length. Please use the preformatted template. Programming for this meeting will occur in June and July of 2007, with some papers scheduled for poster presentation. Check the ECS website for further program details.
All authors selected for either oral or poster presentations will be notified in July of 2007. Oral presentations must be in English. Only LCD projectors will be provided for oral presentations. Presenting authors will be required to bring their own laptops to the meeting. We strongly suggest that presenting authors verify laptop/projector compatibility in the speaker ready room prior to their presentation at the meeting. Speakers requiring additional equipment must make written request to the ECS headquarters office at least one month prior to the meeting and appropriate arrangements will be worked out, subject to availability, and at the expense of the author. Poster presentations should be displayed in English, on a board approximately 4 feet high by 8 feet wide (1.22 meters high by 2.45 meters wide), corresponding to the abstract number and day of presentation in the final program.
Meeting Abstracts — All meeting abstracts will be published both on the ECS website and in the Meeting Abstracts CD-ROM copyrighted by ECS, and become the property of ECS upon presentation.
ECS Transactions — All full papers presented at ECS meetings are eligible for submission to the online publication, ECS Transactions (ECST). Each meeting is represented by a “volume” of ECST, and each symposium is represented by an “issue.”
Some symposia will publish their issue to be available for sale “AT” the meeting; some of these issues will also be available in a hard-cover edition. Please see each individual symposium listing in this Call to determine if there will be an “AT” meeting issue. In this case, submission to ECST is mandatory, and required in advance of the meeting.
Some symposia will publish their issue to be available “AFTER” the meeting. Even if an individual symposium listing does not specify publication of an ECST issue, all authors are still encouraged to submit their full papers. To determine acceptance in ECST, all submitted manuscripts will be reviewed, either by the symposium organizers or by the ECST Editorial Board. After the meeting, all accepted papers in ECST will be available for sale, either individually, or by issue.
Papers presented at the meeting, and papers submitted to ECST, may also be submitted to the Society’s technical journals: the Journal of The Electrochemical Society or Electrochemical and Solid-State Letters. Full manuscripts must be submitted within six months of the symposium date. “Instructions to Authors” are available from the ECS headquarters office, the journals, or the ECS website.
Please visit the ECST website (http://ecsdl.org/ECST/) for additional information, including overall guidelines, deadlines for submissions and reviews, author and editor instructions, a manuscript template, and much more.
If publication is desired elsewhere after presentation, written permission from ECS is required.
Financial assistance is very limited and generally governed by the symposium organizers. Individuals may inquire directly to the symposium organizers of the symposium in which they are presenting their paper to see if funding is available. Individuals requiring an official letter of invitation should write to the ECS headquarters office; such letters will not imply any financial responsibility of ECS. Students seeking financial assistance should consider awarded travel grants.
