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.

Topic Close-up #2

Symposium B07 – Light Energy Conversion with Metal Halide Perovskites, Semiconductor Nanostructures, and Inorganic/Organic Hybrid Materials

Deadline for submitting abstracts: December 4, 2020
Submit today! (more…)

Topic Close-up #1

Symposium M03 – Electrochemical and Metal Oxide Sensors

Deadline for Submitting Abstracts: December 4, 2020

Submit today!

Symposium focus: The development of electrochemical (based on ionic conduction—potentiometric, amperometric, and mixed potential) and metal oxide (based on electronic conduction—conductometric) gas sensors has a long history, and their optimization and miniaturization is a source of continued research. The major focus is to improve selectivity, stability, and reproducibility of the sensor response, in addition to novel methods for synthesis of metal oxide nano-hetero-structures with unique properties and novel sensing mechanisms, and the characterization of the arrays of metal oxide sensors. All relevant topics on gas sensors and biosensors based on electrochemical principles including amperometric, potentiometric, mixed potential, and conductometric devices for both room temperature and high temperature gas sensing are welcome. Please check out the call for papers for more details. (more…)

IMCS 18 Rescheduled

The 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) has been rescheduled to May 30-June 3, 2021, at the Hilton Chicago in Chicago, IL. It will be co-located with the 239th ECS Meeting.

This is the latest in a series of successful meetings for researchers, professionals, and business leaders showcasing state of the art sensors for gases, liquids, biologicals, applications in health and environment, wearables and fixed infrastructure, as well as wired and wireless. Topics covered include the following: (more…)
