LocationSee 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 Building (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).
