Advance Your Career

Professional Development WorkshopProfessional development workshops are a growing feature of the ECS biannual meetings. Several new and recurring workshops being held at the 233rd ECS Meeting in Seattle, WA. The workshops are led by industry and career professionals in order to best serve the interests for mid- and early-career researchers and students.

New workshop additions

An Introduction to Intellectual Property
Instructor: Matthew Rappaport, IP Checkups, Inc.

In recent years intellectual property has become contentious with notable high-tech companies influencing patent rights. Nevertheless, IP continues to play a key role in the development and innovation ecosystem, particularly for start-ups and early-stage commercialization. In this short course, we will get down to basics in exploring the role of IP in protecting your early-stage development and commercialization. Along the way, we will review IP basics and explore portfolio development to help protect your inventions. Decisions such as internal R&D, strategic partnerships or licensing are informed by your portfolio. And finally, what to do when you have to enforce your rights. This workshop is 2.5 hours.

Topic Close-up #11

Symposium E04: Electrodeposition of Reactive Metals and Alloys for Energy Storage

Symposium purpose is to bring together experts from the fields of electrodeposition and energy storage to discuss and learn about the science and technological issues in this fascinating topic which we share. Electrodeposition or plating of reactive compounds is common place in energy storage applications such as metal-air, lithium metal and next generation sodium, magnesium or calcium battery concepts. On the other hand, high quality coatings of reactive metals and alloys such as aluminum, magnesium, vanadium and zinc find applications in anti-corrosion coatings, microelectronics, fuel cells, electrolyzers, supercapacitors and sensors. We welcome all abstracts about novel deposition processes, electrolytes and additives, insights in kinetics, nucleation and growth phenomena, as well as on advanced applications in this field.

Confirmed Invited Speakers include Dr. Fanny Barde of Toyota Motor Europe, Dr. Debra R. Rolison of NRL, Prof. Craig B. Arnold from Princeton University, Prof. Takayuki Homma from Waseda University and Snehashis Choudhury, young investigator at Cornell University (group of prof. Lynden Archer).
