Forty years ago, Joan Berkowitz became the first female president of The Electrochemical Society. In honor of the groundbreaking milestone, ECS will host the symposium, “40 Years After: A Symposium on Diversity,” taking place on Wednesday, October 16, at the 236th ECS Meeting. The symposium will not only celebrate the past but also look towards the future, encouraging conversations and examining options to promote the continued support of not only women in the sciences, but diversity and inclusiveness overall.

U.S. Army Supports 236th ECS Meeting SymposiumPosted on July 22, 2019 by Jennifer Ortiz
ECS’s mission is to advance theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied subjects by encouraging research, discussion, critical assessment, and dissemination of knowledge in these fields. We couldn’t do this without the help of our sponsors! Their support plays a key role in the advancement of the sciences.
Most recently, the Army Research Office, an element of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, contributed $5,000 to the 19th Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells & Electrolyzers 19 (PEFC&E-19) symposium taking place at the 236th ECS Meeting. (more…)

Recognizing Excellence at the ECS Biannual MeetingsPosted on October 29, 2018 by Ashley Moran
At each ECS biannual meeting, some of our technical symposia put aside funding to recognize outstanding posters and presentations. This is a great opportunity to celebrate amazing researchers and students.
ECS established this program to recognize individuals engaged in the vast field of electrochemistry and solid state science. This program provides recognition and encouragement to continue outstanding research in the field. Recipients are selected based on specific award/recipient criteria.
At AiMES 2018 we gave out 13 awards and $4,745.00 in award funds. Below is a list of the awards winners for this meeting. (more…)

Electrochemically Silent Films on Electrodes – Means and Methods
Electrochemically inert films on electrodes alter properties of transport, selectivity, and kinetics to enable new devices and measurement methods. Examples include: density gradient polymers, which establish near steady state transport to the electrode surface and modification of Nafion® with triflate ligands in common organic solvents to enable voltammetry of lanthanide species.

Science for Human SakePosted on March 2, 2017 by Amanda Staller
ECS’s Electrochemical Energy Summit brings together policymakers and researchers from around the globe to discuss the ways in which science impacts the planet’s key sustainability issues. During the 232nd ECS Meeting, taking place October 1-6 in National Harbor, MD.
The 7th International ECS Electrochemical Energy Summit: Human Sustainability – Energy, Water, Food, and Health, is set to include three distinct symposia: Energy-Water Nexus; The Brain and Electrochemistry; and Sensors for Food Safety, Quality, and Security.
The deadline for abstract submission for the 232nd ECS Meeting is April 7. Submit today!
The Energy-Water Nexus symposium, organized by ECS fellow Eric Wachsman, will focus on the connection between energy and water and emerging technologies that could improve access to clean, safe, and affordable resources across the globe. In addition to technical sessions ranging from membranes for water purification to fuel cells, the symposium will feature talks from members of federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Interior, to discuss funding opportunities.
