ECS and IMCS Montreal Meeting Update

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the ECS Board of Directors, we are writing to share the news that in light of the COVID-19 pandemic we are faced with the unfortunate, albeit inevitable decision to cancel the 237th Meeting of the Electrochemical Society, scheduled for Montreal, Canada May 10-14. In addition, the collocated International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS), has voted to postpone their meeting to a date that has yet to be determined.

In our 118 year history, this is only the second time the Society has been forced to cancel an ECS meeting, evidence of the extraordinary position we find ourselves in today.

Obviously, dismantling a meeting of this size (with nearly 3,000 submitted abstracts) is no small task for our volunteer organizers and staff, dedicated and talented as they are. Therefore, we ask for your support and patience as we work through this complicated process.

Please visit the ECS site for the latest updates and for more detailed information.

Wishing you peace and health,
