Are you a student working on energy storage and conversion? Join us at the 239th ECS Meeting with the 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) for the opportunity to present your research! The special symposium, entitled A04-Battery Student Slam 5, is dedicated to students working on energy storage and energy conversion.

The student slam offers students the opportunity to present flash oral presentations of their work in a 10-minute time slot. All students enrolled at any valid degree-granting institution may submit an abstract describing the presentation. New materials and designs, performance studies, and modeling of all types of batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells, including aqueous, non-aqueous, polymer electrolytes, solid electrolytes, and flow systems are of particular interest.

The student chapter program continues to expand because students around the world are excited to join ECS’s global community. On October 16, 2020, the Board of Directors approved the chartering of six new student chapters. (more…)

Support our Next Generation

Nominate a deserving student today!

While we often reflect on the Society’s impressive history, it is also important to look to the future. The next generation of scientists and engineers will solve the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing society today—sustainability, water cleanliness, climate change, and disease, to name just a few.  

Student awards—part of the ECS Honors and Awards Program—support the next generation of scientists by expanding opportunities as they progress in their careers. These awards acknowledge student and early career scientists’ dedication and outstanding achievements in their fields of study. (more…)

On May 14, 2020, the ECS Board of Directors approved a proposal by the Individual Membership Committee to grant student members full voting rights.
