The abstract submission deadline for the upcoming ECS Meeting in New Orleans, May 28 – June 2, 2017 has officially been extended to Dec. 30, 2016!

Do not miss this final opportunity to present your most recent work in one of 50 symposia covering the latest topics in in the fields of electrochemical and solid state science. In addition to longstanding symposia on batteries, semiconductors, and fullerenes, the New Orleans meeting will also cover newer areas such as sustainable materials, nature inspired systems, renewable fuels, 3D printing, flexible electronics, and the first ever Battery Student Slam.

Absolutely no abstracts will be accepted past Dec. 30, so make sure to submit your New Orleans abstract today and present your work at one of the premier technical events in the fields of electrochemistry and solid-state science!


ECS is sponsoring the 11th European Space Power Conference, taking place October 3-7, 2016 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The conference, which will focus on electrical power for space applications and cutting-edge research on topics for terrestrial applicators, is currently open for potential presenters to submit their papers.

Following several issues, some related to browsers compatibility and companies systems configuration, we know that some authors were not able to upload their digest. In addition, some digests have not been submitted in the appropriate format as per instructions, being an abstract instead of a digest.

In view of these issues, the ESPC2016 committee has decided to re-open a window: from Friday 22/04/2016 18:00 CET till Monday 25/04/2016 12:00 CET.

Upload your digest before April 22, 2016!

The conference is intended to cover the three main topics of: power generation with solar generators and other types of sources, such as nuclear or electrochemical; energy storage, including batteries and regenerative fuel cells; and power management and distribution, a wide domain covering every level of integration from electrical parts to power subsystem architectures.

If you are not able to login to ESPC2016 digest submission website, the ESPC2016 committee recommends to use another browser.

Topic Close-up #4

SYMPOSIUM C04: Pits & Pores 7: Nanomaterials – Fabrication Processes, Properties, and Applications

FOCUSED ON The symposium is focused on recent developments in nanostructured semiconductors, metals and nanocomposite systems. A more detailed understanding of etching and growth mechanisms, and the physical and chemical properties of all types of porous structures is emphasized. It integrates diverse research in different fields such as localized metal corrosion, semiconductor electrochemistry, deposition into pores, matrix materials and optical spectroscopy in order to develop a highly transdisciplinary approach to the topic. Emphasis will be on pit and pore formation, porous-structure/surface-property relations, work relevant to the formation of advanced materials and their characterization, and applications of these materials in different areas of science. The symposium brings together scientists from various research fields such as materials science, electrochemistry, physics, chemistry, engineering and biology.
