We are pleased to announce that Professor Christian Amatore, CNRS, will deliver The ECS Lecture, “Seeing, Measuring and Understanding Vesicular Exocytosis of Neurotransmitters” at the 229th ECS Meeting in San Diego, May 29 – June 3, 2016.
Professor Amatore is member of the French Académie des Sciences, of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, of the Academia Europae, and of the Third World Academy of Sciences, Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Honorary Fellow of the Chinese Chemical Society, Fellow of the International Society of Electrochemistry, Honorary Member of the Israeli Chemical Society, and President of ISE.
He was one of the few pioneers of micro- and ultramicroelectrodes in electrochemistry with Mark Wightman, University of North Carolina. He published over 465 primary research publications cumulating more than 19,000 citations with an “h-index” of 68 and an average citation rate of ca. 1100 over the past five years.
His lecture discloses the best present measurements aimed to a precise understanding of vesicular exocytosis in endocrine cells and inside neurons obtained through a combination of theory and quantitative analyses of individual amperometric spikes recorded as ultramicro- and nano-carbon fiber electrodes. Altogether, these data cast a series of unprecedented new views of vesicular exocytosis that relegate previous ones to history.
In addition to Professor Amatore’s talk, Dr. John Scully, University of Virginia, will be receiving the Henry B. Linford Award for Distinguished Teaching, and Dr. Ralph White, University of South Carolina, will be receiving the Vittorio de Nora Award in San Diego.
Don’t miss your chance to present your latest work in San Diego! The deadline for abstract submission is December 11, 2015. Submit now!
Topic Close-up #6
SYMPOSIUM H03: Properties and Applications of 2-Dimensional Layered Materials.
FOCUSED ON electronic, optoelectronic, mechanical and chemical properties and potential applications of 2D layered materials with the focus on boron nitrides, silicene and germanene, graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides/oxides, and group-IV and group-III metal chalcogenides.
NOTING THAT the symposium includes materials preparation, growth, processing, devices, chemistry, physics, theory and applications, it also provides a forum for researchers, scientists and engineers from different countries worldwide, who are actively involved in the research on 2D layered materials to disseminate their latest research results and developments.

Students can be eligible for the General Student Poster Session awards by submitting an abstract to Z01 – General Society Student Poster Session.
The Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) are working together to co-sponsor symposia at each other’s respective conferences. The joint effort will start with “Modeling: From Elucidation of Physical Phenomena to Applications in Design” at the 229th ECS Meeting.
The symposia organizers include Mark Orazem, past president of ISE and chair of the ECS Education Committee; and Johna Leddy, ECS Vice President and member of ISE.
“Through society publications, conferences, and other activities, ECS and ISE both provide essential service to the international electrochemical community,” says Orazem. “As an active member of ISE and ECS, I am very pleased to see these two societies work together in forming jointly sponsored symposia.”
The symposium at the 229th ECS Meeting will cover areas from fundamental theory to modeling of electrochemical technologies and devices, exploring all aspects of modeling electrochemical phenomena and physical effects in electrochemical systems.
“Electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering are central to fundamental research in dynamics and thermodynamics, fundamentals that implement technologies across wide areas that include energy, the environment, and healthcare,” says Leddy. “Because electrochemistry and electrochemical modeling are central to all electrochemists and electrochemical engineers, worldwide, electrochemical modeling provides an excellent venue for this, the first joint symposium of ISE and ECS.”
Abstracts for the “Modeling: From Elucidation of Physical Phenomena to Applications in Design” symposium will be accepted for the 229th ECS Meeting up until December 11, 2015.
“Personally, I am very pleased with the modeling topic and look forward to excellent interactions and discussions with friends of long standing and new colleagues not yet met,” says Leddy. “I look forward to the opportunity that this joint symposium of ISE and ECS provides to exchange ideas and to create new knowledge and new questions.”
Following the 229th ECS Meeting, the “Education for Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering” symposium will be co-organized by both ECS and ISE as part of the 2017 Annual Meeting of ISE.
“This is a new venture, being tested first at the 2016 ECS Meeting in San Diego and then at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the ISE in Providence, Rhode Island,” says Orazem. “I believe that this venture will strengthen both societies and may lead to new levels of cooperation that will benefit electrochemical research and education. I appreciate sincerely the engagement of the ISE and ECS leadership.”
