October 13-14 Workshop Organized by Prof. Yan Yao 

Event 

The in-person fifth Organic Battery Days (OBD) 2022 Workshop continues a series of OBD events that started in Uppsala, Sweden, in 2017. This is the first time the OBD Workshop takes place in the United States! Building on the success of previous meetings, this year’s in-person event aims to strengthen communication and cooperation among experts from academic organizations, research institutes, and manufacturing companies, as well as to exchange knowledge and experience on the most recent developments in the field of organic batteries.

Ten speakers on November 19, 2021

The ECS San Francisco Section presents the inaugural Young Investigator Lectures Series. The COVID-19 pandemic has impaired travel and in-person conferences, negatively impacting early career researchers in the scientific field. The section’s series creates opportunities for senior graduate students and postdocs to highlight their research in virtual short lectures.

The inaugural series showcases 10 speakers from California universities. The ECS San Francisco Section organized the lecture series. Speakers are selected by the Young Investigator Lecture Nomination and Selection Committee.

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy has declared September the month to celebrate the importance of STEM education in building a better future for us all. ECS thanks its many members whose careers are dedicated to advancing science education around the world. All our members are invited to support STEMtember. (more…)

Networking While Social Distancing

You hear it over and over: to get your dream job, get out there and network. Here some suggestions from experts on networking during a period of social distancing. No matter what stage of career you are in—student, early, mid or advanced career—networking is useful. ECS provides a multitude of networking opportunities. Here’s how to make them work for you.

Eight tips

1. Participate in digital meetings with leaders in your field. Take advantage of Q&A sessions to introduce yourself (by full name and organization) and ask questions. Then follow up with the experts through LinkedIn and emails. The 240th ECS Meeting is a great opportunity to link up with the leading authorities in the field of electrochemistry—wherever they are in the world! (more…)

The ECS Education Committee recently voted to combine the Short Course Subcommittee and Career and Professional Development Subcommittee into one committee: the ECS Continuing Education Subcommittee. The conjoined committee is looking for motivated individuals to help shape the future of continuing education opportunities for the ECS community.

As the fields of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies continue to evolve, so do the educational needs of our community. COVID-19 changed education dramatically, forcing a precipitous shift away from the classroom to online learning. While face-to-face education can never be completely replaced, certain aspects of online learning are here to stay.

Be part of the dialog on how the Society maintains its preeminence in continuing education in electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies—and meets the challenges of an ever-changing education landscape!
