Delegates from the 6th Annual India Section School held in December 2017.

ECS sections serve an integral role within the Society. Many sections offer opportunities for members and student members to connect with their regional peers and host local symposia/meetings. Like our divisions, the sections help to serve the mission of ECS.

The Society provides services for sections to assist with marketing, meeting registration, and member recruitment. The services available are:

The Electrochemical Society has appointed Robert G. Kelly of the University of Virginia School of Engineering & Applied Science as the new editor of Interface, the Society’s quarterly magazine, for a four-year term.

In publication since 1992, Interface serves as an authoritative yet accessible forum for the exchange of information relevant to the fields of electrochemical and solid state science and technology. The four-color magazine publishes technical articles, special features, and news for and about ECS members. The publication is currently in its 27th volume year.

Share Your News in Interface

ECS takes pride in the activities of its sections and student chapters. We are proud to feature the activities and accomplishment of both the ECS sections and student chapters.

Is your section/chapter engaging in a recruitment event? Are you planning a symposium or poster event? We know that many of our sections and chapters host meetings outside of the ECS biannual meetings; Interface is a great place to feature this type of event news!

While we encourage your news update to Interface, we do need the submission to meet certain guidelines. Please review the Student News Submission Guidelines before submitting your update; these guidelines are applicable to both sections and student chapters.

You can view previous section and student chapter news updates in prior versions of Interface via the ECS Digital Library – examples are linked below:

  • Section News: Interface 27, Issue 1 (Spring 2018) – Section
  • Student Chapter News: Interface 27, Issue 1 (Spring 2018) – Student Chapter

Please submit any student chapter or section news updates to Shannon.Reed@electrochem.org, director of membership services.

Deadlines for Submissions:

  • April 16, 2018 – summer issue; to be published mid-July
  • June 25, 2018 – fall issue; to be published late August
  • October 15, 2018 – winter issue; to be published mid/late-December

Winter 2017 InterfaceBy: Johna Leddy, ECS President

“It is all about power. If you have power, you have water. If you have water, you have food. If you have food, you can go to school. If you go to school, you have tools to think. If you have access and tools to think, you can learn those next door are not so different. You can work together to mitigate energy disparates and so reduce conflict. It is all about power.”

-ECS satellite OpenCon, October 2017

ECS looks to its future as a forum for research and a conduit for access and communication. Tenets of the scientific method are invariant, but practice of communication and access change. Change is driven by gradients. Without gradients, energy is minimized and the system dies, but if gradients are too steep, the system becomes unstable. History maps conflicts over energy and power. Early wars were over land for food energy. Distribution of natural resources and oil sustain conflicts for thermal energy. Gradients in energy distribution drive change and conflict. Going forward, access to critical materials and information, coupled with the skills and imagination to develop advanced technologies, will mitigate steep gradients in energy distribution.

InterfaceThe following are the updated guidelines for submitting student chapter updates for publication in Interface.

ECS encourages submissions of news from student chapters. Therefore, we try to keep the rules to a minimum. However, some guidance will help in preparing the material.

Point of View: Compose your submission in third person.

Timeliness: Interface is published every three months – spring, summer, fall, and winter. It is best that your chapter update includes information about events, initiatives, accomplishments, etc., from within the last three to six months.

Winter 2017 InterfaceEach year ECS gives up to five Summer Fellowships to assist students in continuing their graduate work during the summer months in a field of interest to the Society.

Congratulations to the four Summer Fellowship recipients for 2017. The Society thanks the Summer Fellowship Committee for their work in reviewing the applications and selecting four excellent recipients.

Mapping Nanoscale Ion Transport
Lushan Zhou

Transport of ions at small length scales plays critical roles in almost all physical and biophysical processes. Investigation of local ion transport properties requires tools for direct visualization of spatially distributed ions at interfaces. Scanning ion conductance microscopy (SICM), a scanned nanoscale pipette, allows high resolution non-contact topography
imaging of samples bathed in electrolyte and therefore is well-suited for nanoscale ion transport studies. Read more.
