Topic Close-up #6

Symposium A03: Large Scale Energy Storage 10

Symposium Focus: The symposium is sponsored by Sumitomo Electric of Japan and supported by three divisions in the ECS, IEEE, ETD, and Battery. Funds from these sponsors are used to invite major industrial developers of large scale energy storage systems from the US and Asia and established speakers from the academia, national labs, and DOE Office of Electricity. The main focus of this symposium is on technical issues at the industrial scale and new directions for Large Scale Electrical Energy Storage. (more…)

Topic Close-up #5

Symposium B07: Light Energy Conversion with Metal Halide Perovskites, Semiconductor Nanostructures, and Inorganic/Organic Hybrid Materials

Symposium Focus: Metal, semiconductor, and organic nanoparticles and nanostructures play important roles in fuel cells, solar energy conversion, catalysis, and hydrogen production. Recent advances in the area of inorganic/organic hybrid nanostructures, in particular metal halide perovskites, and nanomaterials have led to new understanding of their catalytic, photoelectrochemical, and photovoltaic properties. This symposium especially encourages and welcomes contributed presentations.

Session chairs serve as an integral role in the ECS meetings. We try our best to encourage early career risers, post-grads, and young authors to get involved in the meetings by acting as session chairs. Although this is a volunteer-based program, it is a great networking opportunity, as it puts you in front of other scientists, engineers, and researchers sharing their work.

Interested in being a session chair at a symposium in Dallas? Check out the Call for Papers and reach out to the lead organizer!

Topic Close-up #4

Symposium A06: Battery Safety and Failure Modes

Symposium Focus: Energy storage needs for advanced industrial and consumer electronics devices demand increasingly higher lithium-ion battery (LIB) specific energy and power densities. Increased LIB functionality via higher specific energy, extremely fast charging, and sophisticated management systems increases the need for a better understanding of LIB safety. (more…)

Topic Close-up #2

Symposium A04: Battery Student Slam 3

Symposium Focus: This special symposium is dedicated to students working on energy storage and energy conversion. In the student slam, we offer an opportunity for students to present flash oral presentations of their work in a 10-minute time slot. All students enrolled at any valid degree-granting institution may submit an abstract describing the presentation. Of particular interest are new materials and designs, performance studies, and modeling of all types of batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells, including aqueous, non-aqueous, polymer electrolytes, solid electrolytes, and flow systems. We strongly encourage students to submit their papers to this symposium instead of other symposia sponsored by the Battery Division at this meeting. (more…)

Topic Close-up #3

Symposium I05: Heterogeneous Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage 2

Symposium focus: This symposium will focus on the science that controls emergent properties in heterogeneous functional materials as a foundation for the design of functional material devices with performance not bounded by constituent properties.

Providing a unique venue for both contributed and invited speakers to present the latest advances in novel modeling approaches, advanced 3-D imaging and characterization techniques, novel material synthesis and manufacturing methods to create highly ordered material structure, and applications of heterogeneous functional materials in devices for energy conversion and storage.

This symposium especially encourages and welcomes contributed presentations. (more…)

3 Meetings Not to Miss at ECS

ECS has so much to offer. So much so, it can be overwhelming. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. This week, we bring to you the top 3 things not to be missed at ECS:

1. AiMES 2018

Are you a foodie? Like to dance? Enjoy meeting interesting people? (And I mean, interesting.) Need a getaway but are also busy building a name for yourself in your field? AiMES 2018 offers all that and more.

With less than two weeks away, AiMES acts as a central meeting spot for scientists and engineers from around the world to meet and mingle, all just feet away from the sandy white shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Rub elbows with leading researchers and rising stars of the electrochemical and solid state science fields while taking in the salty, tropical Cancun breeze.

Topic Close-up #1

Symposium G02: Processes at the Semiconductor Solution Interface 8

Symposium Focus: This symposium will address the most recent developments in processes at the semiconductor/solution interface including etching, oxidation, passivation, film growth, electrochemical and photoelectrochemical processes, water splitting, electrochemical surface science, electroluminescence, photoluminescence, surface texturing, and compound semiconductor electrodeposition, for photovoltaics, energy conversion, and related topics. It will include both invited and contributed papers on both fundamental and applied topics of both bulk and nanoscale materials.
