Data Science Hack Week in Dallas

There is still time to register for the ECS Data Science Hack Week program that will take place in Dallas, TX from May 26-29 at the 235th ECS Meeting, as the application deadline has been extended to April 15!

Perhaps you have already heard about this Hack Week event or read about data science in the latest issue of Interface magazine, but if you haven’t yet applied to take part in this extended workshop, now is your last chance.

Led by an experienced team of instructors with a mission to train the electrochemical community on the modern tools necessary to enhance your ability to analyze data and accelerate research progress, this program is something every researcher should consider attending. (more…)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) will host the first, pilot NSF Convergence Accelerator (C-Accel) activity, which aims to fund approximately 50 Phase 1 projects at up to $1 million each.

But that’s not all – in 2020, Phase 1 projects will be eligible to apply for Phase 2 C-Accel support, of up to $5 million.

Pilot goals:

According to NSF, the purpose of the pilot is to transform how NSF supports the most innovative science and engineering to accelerate use-inspired convergence research in areas of national importance by facilitating convergent team-building capacity around exploratory, potentially high-risk proposals.

Topic Close-up #13

Symposium F03: Electrochemical Conversion of Biomass 2

Symposium focus: This symposium will provide a forum to present applications, technology and recent developments in the area of electrochemical conversion of biomass. Of particular interest are topics related to electrochemical conversion of biomass to value-added chemicals and fuels of all kinds, and treatment of industrial waste. Presentations related to the development of electrocatalysts or other materials, as well as complete systems, for the electrochemical conversion of biomass are relevant. Kinetics and electrochemical conversion of biomass are also of interest. This topic will focus on electrochemical conversion of all forms of biomass, including, but not limited to, algae and lignocellulosic materials.
