Support the ECS Data Sciences Hack Week

ECS Data Science Hack WeekBuilding on the success of the first ECS Data Sciences Hack Day at the 232nd ECS Meeting this past October 2017, ECS is pleased to offer another opportunity at the 233rd ECS Meeting in Seattle this May.

ECS Data Sciences Hack Week is the Society’s foray into building an electrochemical data sciences and open source community from the ground up. Dataset sharing and open source software have transformed many “big science” areas such as astronomy, particle physics, synchrotron science, protein and genomic sciences, as well as computational sciences. The goal of this event is to increase awareness and impact of data science tools, open source software, and shared datasets in electrochemistry by bringing together people from different backgrounds to collaborate.

Data science tools and approaches have the potential to transform bench science like electrochemistry. The critical need is to build a community of electrochemical data scientists, the people who will contribute to a growing library of shared experimental and computational datasets, and who develop and adapt open source software tools.

Why Exhibit with ECS?

Exhibit FloorAt the 2017 ECS biannual meetings, we had a total of 4,340 attendees from all over the world. Besides listening to the over 3,503 talks, and taking in 941 posters they were presented with the latest available electrochemistry and solid state science and technology products and services.

At each of the ECS biannual meetings we have an exhibition that brings together about 30 business at each meeting. The exhibit hall becomes a showcase for each company’s offerings to ECS constituents.

During the 232nd ECS Meeting this past fall, we met with a few of our long time exhibitors to ask them why they come to ECS meetings. They told us that ECS meetings allow them to connect with current customers and to form new relationships. Exhibitors use the opportunity to answer questions and gain feedback from the scientists and engineers who are actually using their products in labs around the globe. And, in some cases, they have formed lasting friendships. More than one exhibitor described each meeting as a family reunion.
