Endorsed by Curators:
This unique workshop features scientists and researchers from top universities, national laboratories, and electrochemical industries discussing cutting-edge electrochemical science, and addressing issues with respect to the mechanisms of electron transfer. We anticipate a day of great speakers, with a casual atmosphere that fosters interaction between students, postdocs, faculty, representatives from industry, and national labs.
The workshop features technical presentations and posters from several different perspectives covering areas ranging from electrocatalysis, electrochemical sensors, and electroanalysis. The2018 CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistrywill be held February 10-11, 2018 and will feature eleven presentations organized into three main topic areas, including: Electrochemistry for the Climate and Environment, Next Generation Batteries,andInSitu Characterization of Intermediates in Electrocatalysis.

The poster session is open to all attendees. Posters may be presented by any attendee: students, postdocs and researchers at UT and other schools, as well as to industry and national labs. You may reserve a spot for your poster as you complete your registration. Poster titles need to be confirmed by 12:00 pm, January 19, 2018.
There are a limited number of spaces available for table exhibits at the poster session. Companies must be a current member of the CECIndustrial Affiliates programin order to exhibit.
Join the Industrial Affiliates program, and all attendees from your company enjoy discounted registration for the Workshop.
See you in Austin! Each year, the CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry brings together experts in fields of engineering, materials, and electrochemistry to focus on a few topics in an important area of electrochemical research.Electrochemistry is the foundation for chemical transducers and sensors and is poised to play an increasing role in the analysis of chemical and biological interfaces; and for the high-resolution study of ion/charge transport and dynamics, electron transfer, adsorption, and chemical toxicity.Participants address specific challenges in the field, exchange ideas and information, and catch up with colleagues from around the world.
The Workshop will be held at the Robert A. Welch Bulding (Welch Hall, or WEL) on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
The workshop location is near to the many recreational and cultural attractions of the Austin Hill Country.The Austin campus is the site of 17 libraries and several world-class museums, and just a short walk or ride away from central Austin attractions: the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum, the Texas State Capitol, Congress Avenue, and 6th Street and the Warehouse shopping and entertainment districts. Known as "The Live Music Capital of the World," Austin is a vibrant mix of Texas friendliness and cosmopolitan sophistication, with opportunities for outdoor recreation activities. The weather in Austin during February can be cool, but is generally mild: the average high is 65 F (18 C) and the average low is 44 F (7 C).
