ECS Webinar Series

Cutting-edge research presented by leading scientists

The ECS Webinar Series showcases distinguished speakers and members of the ECS community presenting their latest research. These live and on-demand webinars provide up-to-the-minute research from leaders in the fields of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies. Topics covered embrace the full spectrum of the Society’s technical interest areas—in upcoming webinars and our growing archive of past webinars. All content is available to ECS members and non-members on PhysicsWorld at no cost.

ECS welcomes webinar proposals from researchers in electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies. See below for directions on how to volunteer.

Thanks to generous support from our sponsors, there is no cost to participate.

PhysicsWorld is co-producer

The webinars are broadcast on, the official website of ECS’s publishing partner, the Institute of Physics. The site hosts webinars from many of the world’s leading scientific authorities, routinely generating more than 800,000 monthly page views.’s editorial team writes extensively on electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. Their audience—primarily scientific researchers from around the world—says that they use the website for educational purposes to further their knowledge.
