1. AiMES 2018

Are you a foodie? Like to dance? Enjoy meeting interesting people? (And I mean, interesting.) Need a getaway but are also busy building a name for yourself in your field? AiMES 2018 offers all that and more.

With less than two weeks away, AiMES acts as a central meeting spot for scientists and engineers from around the world to meet and mingle, all just feet away from the sandy white shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Rub elbows with leading researchers and rising stars of the electrochemical and solid state science fields while taking in the salty, tropical Cancun breeze.

Focus IssuesSubmit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) Focus Issue on The Brain and Electrochemistry, Honoring R. Mark Wightman and Christian Amatore by March 11, 2018.

This focus issue of the JES is devoted to work at the juncture of electrochemistry, the brain, and the nervous system.

The issue will provide a forum for the discussion of research and developments on how the central (CNS) and the peripheral nervous systems (PNS) can be viewed and studied in terms of electrical circuits and electrochemical sensors, reactions and methods. This issue, as well as the The Brain and Electrochemistry symposium held at the 232nd ECS Meeting in October 2017, was inspired by the works of Christian Amatore from the Ecole Normale Supérieure and Mark Wightman from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They dedicated their careers to this topic, trained and influenced countless researchers over the years.

Focus IssuesSubmit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society Focus Issue on Ubiquitous Sensors and Systems for IoT by December 26, 2017.

Ubiquitous sensors are becoming an integral part of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and progress in this domain can be seen each month. The promise is that everyone and everything will be connected via wireless data collection, and services like healthcare will be brought to everyone, everywhere, anytime, for virtually any need.

These devices sense the environment and provide applications in home automation, home safety and comfort, and personal health. At a macro level, they provide data for smart cities, smart agriculture, water conservation, energy efficiency industry 4.0, and Society 5.0. Other applications include supply chain management, transportation, and logistics.

PhosphorsSubmit your manuscripts for the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) Focus Issue on Visible and Infrared Phosphor Research and Applications by July 29, 2017.

Rapid changes are taking place in the area of luminescent materials research from basic understanding to novel applications. This is due to the recent progresses in the area of phosphors for LED applications and the need for novel luminescent materials for applications in medical research as biosensors, solar cells, infrared sensors, and display technologies. These developments have led to new questions and new techniques related to basic research in the field of luminescence.

The main goal of this focus issue of the JSS is to provide a comprehensive picture of the current trends in research of phosphor emitting in the visible and IR regions.

Review and contributed papers are welcome in the following topics:
