Topic Close-up #7

Symposium B02: Carbon Nanostructures in Medicine and Biology

Symposium focus:

Nanocarbons have unique electronic, optical, and structural properties that enable new applications in biology and medicine. These may include but are not limited to assays, imaging tools, sensors, and therapeutics. The session covers areas including the development of new materials, characterization, uses/demonstration of pharmacology or effects in vitro and in vivo, plant biology applications, and clinical uses.

Nanocarbons Division SES Research Young Investigator Awardee and Keynote Speaker: Prof. Markita Landry, Assistant Professor, University of California at Berkeley

Topic Close-up #5

Symposium D01: Dielectrics for Nanosystems 8: Materials Science, Processing, Reliability, and Manufacturing

Symposium focus:

The eighth edition of the Dielectrics for Nanosystems symposium, sponsored by the Dielectric Science and Technology Division, will be held at the 237th ECS meeting. The symposium, which started at the 206th ECS Meeting in Hawaii in 2004, is being held after a gap of four years. It will outline the role of dielectrics in research areas of advanced nanosystems involving electronic, optical, magnetic, mechanical, biological, and chemical systems, including sensing devices and energy sources.

Topic Close-up #6

Symposium L05: Composite Electrodes

Symposium focus: Multicomponent composite electrodes are an essential feature of a variety of electrochemical devices such as batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, and hybrid systems, and their proper design is key to ensuring that optimum kinetics and mass transport are achieved during operation. Several phases must meet in these composite systems, such as a gas diffusion electrode of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell, for the electrochemistry to take place, which requires the combination of good materials selection and processing protocols.

Topic Close-up #1

Symposium IMCS 03: Electrochemical and Metal Oxide Sensors

Symposium focus: There has been a long history to the development of electrochemical (based on ionic conduction; potentiometric, amperometric, and mixed potential) and metal oxide (based on electronic conduction; conductometric) gas sensors. Their optimization and min-iaturization 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 syn-thesis 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 am-perometric, potentiometric, mixed potential and conductometric devices for both room temperature and high temperature gas sensing are welcome.

Interested in Being a Session Chair?

Session chairs serve as an integral role in the ECS meetings. We try our best to encourage early-career risers, post-grads, and young authors to get involved in the meetings by acting as session chairs. Although this is a volunteer-based program, it is a great networking opportunity, as it puts you in front of other scientists, engineers, and researchers sharing their work.

Interested in being a session chair at a symposium at the 237th ECS Meeting with the 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS 2020) in Montréal? Check out the call for papers and reach out to the lead organizer!

Read the here guidelines for session chairs.
