Update on the 239th ECS Meeting and IMCS 18

The Electrochemical Society is actively monitoring the worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and preparing for any potential impact on the upcoming 239th ECS Meeting and 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) in Chicago, IL, on May 30-June 3, 2021.

At present, we are proceeding with abstract submission and all preparations for an in person event in Chicago. We are working closely with our conference venue, the Hilton Chicago, to stay abreast of the latest developments, and to ensure that they adopt the requisite onsite preventive measures for the health and well-being of our attendees.

NOTE: To help accommodate the needs and safety of our presenters, abstract submitters can now choose a “digital” presentation option. Anyone who selects this option is required to submit a digital presentation file (video and/or slides) for their talk, but is not expected to attend the meeting in Chicago. As with the PRiME 2020 meeting, all digital presentation files will be freely available to the public for an extended period of time, so there will be no assigned days/times for digital presentations. Regular “oral” and “poster” presentation selections will also be available for both the ECS and IMCS meetings.

As new information becomes available, or if our meeting plans change, we will inform our community via email, social media, and on the ECS website. If you have any questions at this time, please do not hesitate to contact meetings@electrochem.org.
