On June 14, 78 graduate and undergraduate students from around the world received notification that their posters had been chosen for exhibition at the Z01 General Student Poster Session at the 240th ECS Meeting in Orlando, FL, from October 10-14, 2021. The poster session is a forum for students to present research results to ECS meeting attendees including the most active researchers in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. Students choose to be part of the competition for cash awards recognizing the best poster presentations.

The ECS British Columbia Student Chapter invites students, post-docs, professors, and anyone interested in electrochemistry, materials, or renewable energy, to our 10th Annual Young Electrochemists Symposium. This milestone meeting is online via Zoom due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19. Hopefully, this is the last online meeting before we gather in person again.
We hope to see you soon at our symposium,

The ECS Student Chapter program continues to expand as students around the world seek to join ECS’s global community. On June 10, 2021, the Board of Directors approved the chartering of two new student chapters.
The 2021 Society election is the first opportunity for ECS student members to help choose the new ECS President and 3d Vice President. As previously reported, the Individual Membership Committee submitted a proposal to the Board of Directors to grant student members full voting rights. The proposal was approved by the Board of Directors in May 2020.
ECS President, Stefan de Gendt, says, “Students and early career professionals are vital to the health and long-term sustainability of the Society. By providing these critical members the right to vote we give them a voice and the ability to directly participate in the governance of the Society.” (more…)

Are you a student working on energy storage and conversion? Join us at the 239th ECS Meeting with the 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) for the opportunity to present your research! The special symposium, entitled A04-Battery Student Slam 5, is dedicated to students working on energy storage and energy conversion.
The student slam offers students the opportunity to present flash oral presentations of their work in a 10-minute time slot. All students enrolled at any valid degree-granting institution may submit an abstract describing the presentation. New materials and designs, performance studies, and modeling of all types of batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells, including aqueous, non-aqueous, polymer electrolytes, solid electrolytes, and flow systems are of particular interest.

Nominate a deserving student today!
While we often reflect on the Society’s impressive history, it is also important to look to the future. The next generation of scientists and engineers will solve the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing society today—sustainability, water cleanliness, climate change, and disease, to name just a few.
Student awards—part of the ECS Honors and Awards Program—support the next generation of scientists by expanding opportunities as they progress in their careers. These awards acknowledge student and early career scientists’ dedication and outstanding achievements in their fields of study. (more…)
