ECS Travel Grants provide financial assistance for early career electrochemists and Society members to participate in ECS meetings.

What is an ECS Travel Grant?

Many ECS divisions and sections offer travel grants to undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, young professionals, and faculty presenting papers at ECS biannual meetings. Applications must be submitted no later than the deadlines listed on the ECS website. ECS divisions and sections may have additional application requirements. Please review these additional requirements before filling out the online application. (more…)

Mark Orazem reflects on now, as opposed to then

Mark OrazemWhen we started on our COVID-19 interview series, no one knew how long the pandemic would last or the long-term impact it would have on our community. As we approach the end of a year of living in the shadow of COVID-19, we thought it useful to follow up with some of our interviewees. We learned that research, collaboration, teaching, and learning are continuing to evolve—along with the challenges of distance learning, meeting, and life.

When we spoke with Mark Orazem last spring about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, he was on a sabbatical that did not turn out as planned. Now he is back teaching at the University of Florida where he is Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society is actively monitoring the worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and preparing for any potential impact on the upcoming 239th ECS Meeting and 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) in Chicago, IL, on May 30-June 3, 2021.

At present, we are proceeding with abstract submission and all preparations for an in person event in Chicago. We are working closely with our conference venue, the Hilton Chicago, to stay abreast of the latest developments, and to ensure that they adopt the requisite onsite preventive measures for the health and well-being of our attendees.

The ECS General Student Poster Session Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge the excellence of students’ work. The winners’ posters display their understanding of research topics in fields of interest to the Society.

This year, 243 students submitted posters for the PRiME 2020 General Student Poster Session. Of them, three student posters stood out above the rest. The recipients of the PRiME 2020 Z01 General Student Poster Session’s best poster awards are:

1st Place – $1,500 cash award
Jong Hwa Kim
Poster # 142359
Feasibility of LiNbO3 Surface Coating on High-Ni Layered Cathode Materials for Lithium Ion Batteries
Kim received BS in Advanced Materials Engineering for Information and Electronics from Kyung Hee University, Republic of Korea, in 2019. He is pursuing his MS under the guidance of Professor Min-Sik Park at the same university. Kim’s research focuses on improving the performance of cathode materials for lithium ion batteries.

The ECS Board of Directors chartered a new ECS section on October 16, 2020. With the addition of the ECS Pacific Northwest Section, the Society now hosts over 24 region-specific sections providing opportunities for regional scientists and engineers to connect with researchers and participate in various events. Jie Xiao, ECS Fellow and Battery Division Secretary, took the lead in chartering the section and now serves as its chair.

The ECS Pacific Northwest Section seeks to connect all interested parties from academia, industry, and government, and bridge a scientific gap while providing networking opportunities that could lead to new developments—and help members advance their careers. The section serves all of the universities and national labs in Washington State, Idaho, and Oregon. Xiao believes the section will bolster the growth of the electrochemistry and solid state science fields in the Pacific Northwest. (more…)
