Call for Nominations: Editor-in-Chief

ECS Sensors Plus

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) is seeking candidates to serve as the founding Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of ECS Sensors Plus, a journal in the process of being launched in 2021.

ECS Sensors Plus is a multidisciplinary, open access journal that provides an international platform to publish high-quality impactful articles and promote scholarly communication and interactions among scientists, engineers, and technologists whose primary interests are focused on mechanisms, materials, structures, properties, performance, and characterization of sensing and detection devices and systems, including sensor arrays, networks, and actuators. The goal of ECS Sensors Plus, as a one-stop shop journal for sensors, is to advance the fundamental science and understanding of sensors and detection technologies for efficient monitoring and control of industrial processes and the environment, and improving quality of life and human health.

Nomination timeline

Nomination submission opens: May 18, 2021
Nomination submission closes: June 17, 2021 (more…)

Volume two of this focus issue is a collection of papers accepted to the 2020 International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) which was postponed. Although IMCS takes place every two years, the postponed 2020 meeting is scheduled (in a digital format) for May 30-June 3, 2021. IMCS was founded in Fukuoka, Japan, in 1983. Today it is the largest and most-renowned conference in the scientific area of chemical sensors. IMCS meetings provide an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in the field and with companies commercializing chemical sensors for environmental, medical, healthcare, industry, and food safety applications. Papers are being accepted covering topics related to the planned IMCS symposia, which include: (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society invites submissions for a 2022 Focus Issue centered on energy storage research in China. Under the Paris Agreement, China committed to peak its CO2 emissions and to supply 20 percent of its energy demand using non-fossil sources by 2030. Energy storage technologies are required in order to promote renewable energy sources utilization and economic performance. China’s energy storage research develops rapidly, especially in the field of “beyond lithium-ion” technologies. This focus issue aims to present transformational advances in scalable energy storage to go beyond the current state of the art lithium-ion batteries. (more…)

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue dedicated to the memory of Professor George Blasse: Recent Developments in Theory, Materials, and Applications of Luminescence. On December 30, 2020, Prof. Blasse passed away unexpectedly at the age of 86, in Munich, Germany, where he lived since his retirement in 1996. Prof. Blasse was highly recognized internationally and shaped the field of luminescent materials research. He combined groundbreaking fundamental discoveries with societal relevance including the discovery of the phosphor that enabled white light LEDs. He had a deep and also intuitive understanding of luminescence phenomena, and often relied on clever chemical variations in host composition and structure to obtain insight into the underlying physics of luminescence and energy transfer phenomena of ions in solids.

In December of 1992, the premiere issue of The Electrochemical Society Interface was published. Over 100 issues later, the quarterly Society magazine continues to provide scholars with the latest technical articles in solid state and electrochemical science and technology, and news and information about and for ECS members. Many of you may have these treasured back issues on your bookshelves. For those who do not, ECS has taken on the project of digitizing Interface issues from 1992-2009. To date, ECS staff has worked in conjunction with IOP Publishing to digitize 2007, 2008, and 2009. As always, the issues will be available through the Interface website. (more…)
