Tips and Tools for a Successful Meeting Experience
All meeting participants, including invited speakers, are required to pay the appropriate registration fees. The earlier you register, the more you save. Meals are not included with registration, but there are complimentary coffee breaks each day.
Many ECS divisions offer travel grants to students, postdoctoral researchers, and young professionals to attend ECS biannual meetings. Applications, which are available online, must be received by July 8, 2024. Additional financial assistance is very limited and generally governed by the symposium organizers. Individuals may inquire directly to the organizers of the symposium in which they are presenting their paper to see if funding is available. For general travel grant questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Publish your paper
ECS Transactions (ECST) is the official conference proceedings publication of The Electrochemical Society. This publication features full-text content of proceedings from ECS meetings and ECS-sponsored meetings. ECST is a high-quality venue for authors and an excellent resource for researchers. The full papers and posters appearing in ECST are reviewed to ensure that submissions meet generally accepted scientific standards. All authors of accepted ECST papers are encouraged to submit their papers to the Society’s technical journals. Please visit the ECST website for additional information, including overall guidelines, deadlines, instructions, a manuscript template, and more.
Additionally, authors presenting papers at PRiME 2024 and submitting to ECST are encouraged to submit to the Society’s technical journals.
Special accommodations for attendees with disabilities are handled on an individual basis. Contact ECS headquarters at email@example.com immediately if you need assistance.

Your Meeting Experience
The best way to come to the meeting feeling prepared? Plan in advance! Check the meeting homepage regularly for new and updated events and information.
Once published, add the online program to the home screen of your smartphone or bookmark it in the internet browser on any of your devices. View, add, and sync presentations, sessions, and events to create your own custom itinerary.
Conference attire is business casual. Session rooms can be chilly, so dress in layers. Given the lengths you have to walk, wear comfortable walking shoes.
Honolulu weather in October is typically warm with average temperatures ranging from 75-83°F (24°-28°C). Check the forecast and plan accordingly.
What to bring
- Business cards: With ample time to network, have plenty of cards on hand to distribute.
- Day bag: Between early sessions and evening poster receptions, meeting days are long. Bring a backpack or briefcase to carry any needed items as there are few opportunities during the day to return to your hotel room.
- Reusable water bottle and coffee mug: go green!
- Notebook and pen: Be sure you have these on hand at all times.
