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. (more…)
