Keeping Up With ECS

If you are an ECS member—or considering joining— you may be curious about The Electrochemical Society’s activities. ECS makes a full report to its members once a year at the Annual Society Business Meeting and Luncheon (ASBM). Here, at the spring meeting, ECS reviews the successes and challenges of the past year and outlines plans for the upcoming year. Members are called on to vote on important business. New officers are introduced and the Society’s financial position presented. ASBM is an opportunity for attendees to ask questions, meet the Society’s leadership, and hear a leading authority deliver an important address. However, not everyone can attend the ASBM. To satisfy your curiosity, you can watch the video of the proceedings and learn how active participation in ECS benefits its members greatly – and being informed is an important part of that.

Join a Powerful Partnership!

An institutional membership with ECS admits your organization into an elite group of scientists, academics, and professionals. It gives your organization access to the vast arrays of information, people, and breaking research that ECS has to offer.

The ECS institutional membership program provides content access, member-related discounts, as well as advertising, exhibit, and sponsorship opportunities. (more…)

Students: Show Off Your Work

Show off your work at the 237th ECS Meeting with IMCS 2020. Students and early career professionals can present their research at special symposia.

A04 Student Battery Slam 4: Students present ten-minute flash oral presentations on their battery technology work. Awards are given for the three best talks.

Z01 ECS General Student Poster Session: Students deliver oral or poster-form presentations on their research results in electrochemical and solid-state science and technology. A competition for the best posters and papers is part of the session.

The meeting is in Montréal, Canada from May 10-15, 2020. The deadline to submit abstracts is November 15, 2019.

 

 

The ECS Imperial College London Student Chapter is co-organizing SElectrochem 2019: chance to meet bright young researchers in the electrochemistry field!

On September 19, 2019, young researchers in the field of electrochemistry (including batteries, fuel cells, catalysis, and corrosion) will gather at Imperial College London for a one-day event to share ideas, present work, and form new collaborations. There will be four sessions of oral presentations, poster sessions during lunchtime, and a prize ceremony with a drinks reception at the end of the day.

Talks with a twist! The student chapter is inviting two-minute “quick-fire” presentations with an accompanying poster, giving early career researchers a great way to introduce their work, inspire others, and encourage interest and collaborations. Prizes are lined up for the best presenters, generously supported by our sponsors that include the Royal Society of Chemistry, The Electrochemical Society, the Faraday Institution, Energy Futures Lab, Metrohm, and Alvatek.

ECS would like to congratulate the 2019 Outstanding Student Chapter winner, the University of Calgary for their dedication and commitment to the advancement of solid state and electrochemical science and technology.

The Outstanding Student Chapter Award was established in 2012 to recognize distinguished student chapters that demonstrate active participation in The Electrochemical Society’s technical activities, establish community and outreach activities in the areas of electrochemical and solid state science and engineering education, and create and maintain a robust membership base.

The University of Calgary has become one of ECS’s most exemplary chapters. The chapter will receive $1,000 for student chapter funding and a recognition plaque as well as recognition in Interface for their hard work. (more…)

ECS members Glenn Lee (center) and Akilah Miller (front right) discuss the effect of temperature on battery performance at the Explore Your Universe 2018 event at the UCLA campus.

When ECS President Yue Kuo and ECS Executive Director and CEO Christopher Jannuzzi found themselves in California for the International Battery Association 2019 (IBA 2019) Meeting in San Diego, they knew they had to make one more stop before their trip came to an end. They had heard of an ECS Student Chapter at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) known widely for their active membership, offering a hub for nearly 20 members to gather each week to present research, gather new ideas, and even start new collaborations among different research groups.

“We contacted Ryan Henry DeBlock, the UCLA chapter chair, to schedule the visit,” said Kuo.

“Many of the students participating in this chapter are doing research in batteries and come together to exchange what they’ve learned,” said Kuo of the visit.

Kuo also took the opportunity to inform the students of the many things ECS has to offer as well. (more…)
