Annual Workshops on Electrochemistry

Each year in Austin, Texas, the CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry brings together experts in fields of engineering, materials, and electrochemistry to focus on a  topic in an important area of research. Participants address specific challenges in the field, exchange ideas and information, and catch up with colleagues from around the world.

These exclusive workshops feature 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. 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.

Each workshop features technical presentations and posters from several different perspectives covering areas ranging from electrocatalysis, electrochemical sensors, and electroanalysis.

The 2017 CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry will be held February 11-12, 2017.

Previous Workshops:

This year's workshop will be held at the Robert A. Welch (WEL) building, on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The Welch building is located on the southwest corner of 24th Street and Speedway Avenue.

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 the 6th Street and 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).

The CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry is made possible in part by funding from the Robert A. Welch Foundation (Grant H-F-0037), from the Army Research Office, and from The University of Texas at Austin.
