Responsible for the support and development of community engagement programs and execution of other various ECS programs and activities. Facilitates growth of the Society’s educational programming and activities to enhance continuing education offerings. Coordinates participation and execution of section and student chapter programs, student membership program, and student and section engagement throughout the Society. Promotes and increases engagement in outreach and professional development services like the ECS Career Center. Serves as staff liaison for section and student chapter relations, and works closely with staff and volunteer leaders to ensure that these relationships support the Society’s goals and objectives.
During his ECS Masters Interview at the 2016 ECS PRiME Meeting, John Goodenough vulnerably disclosed that as a child, he had dyslexia and could not read like others his age. He described leaving home at the age of 12 for an affluent boarding school as a struggling scholarship student. Stories were shared about life events that led John on the path of science and discovery, as well as the individuals who supported and guided him along the way. And when asked about the dissemination of scientific content, John imparted his belief that scholarly societies are essentially in the business of fostering partnerships to serve the community at large. He emphasized the role of societies in creating space to convene the community to further scientific advancement.
The editorial teams of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology and Journal of The Electrochemical Society have come together in the spirit of this belief. They are publishing a focus issue comprised of 80+ select invited papers celebrating and honoring the life, legacy, and contributions of beloved professor and longtime ECS member Dr. John B. Goodenough.
The full issue is scheduled to be available in May 2022—just two months before John’s 100th birthday.
The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue dedicated to the late Professor Nongjian Tao for his longstanding contribution to the development of chem/biosensors and nanoscale measurements. This issue also serves as a celebration of the 70th birthday of Professor Stuart Lindsay, Professor Tao’s doctoral advisor and longtime collaborator for over 35 years.
Contributions are invited in all aspects of chem/biosensor technology with topics that include, but are not limited to: Electric, magnetic, and optical biosensors; novel transduction modes; molecular recognition elements; nanomaterials and their system level integration for biological/medical applications such as point-of-care, implantable, and wearable sensors. In addition, novel nanoscale measurements of cells and cellular/molecular components (e.g., nucleic acid, proteins, organic molecules), including scanning probe microscopy, plasmonic, and optical imaging of biomolecules, are also highly encouraged. Many of these measurements lead to improved understanding of transduction mechanisms and novel biosensor platforms that allow for ultrasensitive and dynamic detection in living systems. (more…)
The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue on advanced electrolysis for renewable energy storage. The utilization of renewable energy has substantially driven more attention into electrolysis technologies. As renewable energy emerges and penetrates further into the energy market, the storage of surplus “off peak” electricity has received widespread considerations. An electrolyzer (ELX) can utilize “off peak” electricity from solar or wind farms to produce hydrogen or other fuels (e.g., ammonia, methanol, ethylene). These chemicals can subsequently be operated in a fuel cell mode to generate electricity or used as intermediates for other industrial applications. Compared to conventional batteries, the chemical storage of renewable energy has advantages of high energy density, long duration, and more flexibility. The covered technologies can include water electrolysis, CO2 conversion, NH3 synthesis, or other new electrolysis technologies. (more…)

You are invited to nominate qualified candidates for the India Section S.K. Rangarajan Graduate Student Award.
Established in 2017, the award assists a deserving student in India pursue a career in disciplines related to electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. The award honors Sarukkai Krishnamachari “SKR” Rangarajan (1932 – 2008) for his dedication and contributions to electrochemical science and technology. (more…)

The ECS Yamagata University Student Chapter in Japan has been very active, organizing symposia on November 20 and 17 December, 2019.
The 6th ECS Yamagata University (YU) Student Chapter Symposium featured Dr. Philipp Stadler, Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz, Austria. His lecture, “Conductive Biopolymers as Sustainable Electrocatalysts,” covered the research background to the serious problems caused by global climate change and the scarcity of resources for developing sustainable technology. He presented recent progress on metal-free organic conductive polymer catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR). A lively discussion followed as the talk was directly related to YU students’ research. (more…)
