In light of rapidly escalating cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant across the US, and continuing travel restrictions on international visitors, The Electrochemical Society (ECS) Board of Directors determined that it is not possible to safely convene the upcoming ECS meeting in Orlando, FL, on October 10-14, 2021.
Instead, the 240th ECS Meeting will be a fully digital event. Rather than travelling to Orlando, all presenting authors are asked to submit digital presentation files (video, and/or slide deck or poster) in advance of the meeting. These materials will be freely available to all global attendees for on-demand viewing throughout the meeting dates.
To support access to all the ECS technical programs by the international research community, presenters are asked to pay a registration fee to upload their digital presentation files. This fee is significantly less than the planned in-person meeting registration fees.
It is no small task for the volunteer organizers and staff to transition a meeting of this size to a digital format. Thank you for your support and patience through this complicated process. ECS will publish regular updates over the coming weeks to keep the community informed about developments.
Please review important information below and visit the meeting website for the latest updates and details.
All meeting presenters are asked to submit a digital presentation file (video, and/or slide deck or poster) that will be available for online viewing through November 6, 2021, as part of the digital event. The deadline to submit presentation files is October 1, 2021. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
