Tips & Tools for a Successful Meeting Experience
The best way to come to the meeting feeling prepared? Plan in advance! Check the meeting landing page regularly for new and updated events and information.
Get the App
Search “ECS mobile” in your app store, to put the PRiME 2020 technical program and personal meeting scheduler on your mobile device. Connect with ECS all year and stay informed with the latest news in the world of electrochemistry and solid state science.
The attire for the conference is business casual. The venues are open air and the weather is tropical and humid with the average temperature in October being 27°C/81°F so pack accordingly. Given the amount of walking you will do, we recommend comfortable walking shoes.
What to bring
- Business Cards – You will be meeting a lot of industry professionals, so be prepared to help them remember you by handing out your business card. A good place to stash your business cards is behind your name tag in the plastic sleeve.
- Day bag / backpack – between early sessions and evening poster receptions, meeting days are long. Bring a backpack or briefcase to carry any items you need with you as there will not be many opportunities to go back to your hotel room throughout the day. Items for bag may include: portable charges, gum/mints, meeting program, folder with resume, computer etc.
- Snacks and a reusable water bottle – If you’re trying to limit your food budget, find a grocery store on your first night in town and stock up on fruit, granola bars, etc.
- A notebook & pen – it may sound obvious but you want to make sure you have these on hand at all times.
Who to ask
Staff members can easily be picked out of a crowd. Look for our signature polos with the ECS logo or a nametag with a “Staff” ribbon. We are always happy to take a moment and answer your questions or listen to feedback. Have a specific question or concern you’d like to discuss in advance? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org today.
Things to Know
All meeting participants, including invited speakers, are required to pay the appropriate registration fees. The earlier you register, the more you will save. We do not offer any meals with registration. There are meal locations throughout the conference center and many within walking distance.
Publish Your Paper
ECS Transactions— select symposia will be publishing their proceedings in ECS Transactions. All authors of accepted meeting abstracts from these symposia are encouraged to submit a full-text paper. Be sure to check the call for papers for more information and your symposium’s requirements. Eligible authors will receive a notification email, including login credentials, when the ECST submission site opens. All proceedings will be published prior to the meeting for which they were submitted. For additional information, please visit the ECST website, or contact email@example.com.
ECSarXiv— ECS recently launched ECSarXiv, a preprint service for the community working in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. This free service is for preprints and other preliminary communications that are not yet published in a peer-reviewed outlet. ECSarXiv offers an excellent opportunity to draw more attention to your meeting presentation or poster, and provides a venue to share your work, no matter the format. Find out more or submit now!
Additionally, authors presenting papers at PRiME 2020, and submitting to ECST and/or ECSarXiv, are also encouraged to submit to the Society’s technical journals.
Letters of Attendance
Individuals requiring an official letter of attendance should visit the “Letters of Attendance” self-help computer in the registration area onsite. Once you complete the form, the letter will be emailed to you within 2 weeks of the end of the meeting.
