2011 Workshop on Electrochemistry

CEC Annual Workshop on ElectrochemistryThe CEC hosts the third annual Workshop on Electrochemistry this weekend (February 19-20, 2011) at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center located on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. The workshop will feature seminar presentations from 11 leading scientists in four sessions: electrodeposition and electrosynthesis, industrial electrochemistry, photoelectrochemistry, and new techniques.

A poster session and exhibition on Saturday evening at the Texas Union will present recent research results from 50 presenters representing UT-Austin, other univerisities and industry. More information and registration is available online.

Also in connection with the workshop, the Center for Electrochemistry will host a seminar by Dr. Akira Yoshino, Asahi Kasei Corporation. Dr. Yoshino will speak on "Origin, Recent Development and the Future of Lithium-Ion Battery (LiB)" at 10:00 am, Monday, February 21, 2011 in the seminar room of the new Norman Hackerman building (NHB 1.720) at UT-Austin.

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.
