231st ECS MEETING
NEW ORLEANS L
Properties and Applications of 2-Dimensional Layered Materials 2 Electronics and Photonics Division, Dielectric Science and Technology Division, Nanocarbons Division
Two-dimensional layered materials have recently gained renewed interest due to their unique electronic, optoelectronic, mechanical and chemical properties and potential applications. The symposium will cover all 2D layered materials with the focus on graphene, boron nitrides, silicene and germanene, transition metal dichalcogenides/oxides, and group-IV and group-III metal chalcogenides. The scope of the symposium includes materials preparation, growth, processing, devices, chemistry, physics, theory and applications. This Symposium aims to provide a forum for researchers, scientists and engineers from different countries worldwide, who are actively involved in the research on 2D layered materials to disseminate their latest research results and developments. Submissions are invited for oral and poster presentations. An “enhanced” edition of ECS Transactions is planned to be available at the meeting. All authors accepted for presentation are obligated to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than March 10, 2017. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format. All abstracts will be submitted online, questions and inquiries should be sent to the symposium organizers: Lain-Jong (Lance) Li , King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), email: lance. email@example.com; Jr-Hau He, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Daniel S.

Oxygen or Hydrogen Evolution Catalysts for Water Electrolysis 3 Energy Technology Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division
Water electrolysis represents a clean and sustainable approach to producing hydrogen. However, the cost of hydrogen production from this process is still prohibitive due to significant electricity consumption and materials cost. High-efficient electrocatalysts for either oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) may enable o lower the over-potential of electrochemical reactions so as to improve the overall

energy efficiency of water electrolysis. The development of advanced catalysts may also help to reduce the loading of precious metal catalysts or to replace them with non-precious metal catalysts. This Symposium seeks novel or advanced water electrolysis catalysts that include but are not limited to the following categories: 1) catalyst supports with extremely high corrosion resistance (>1.5V vs. SHE); 2) OER catalysts for proton exchange membrane (PEM) based electrolysis; 3) OER catalysts for anion exchange membrane (AEM) based electrolysis; 3) HER catalysts for AEM electrolysis; 4) bi-functional ORR/OER catalysts; 5) bi-functional HOR/ HER catalysts; 6) Electrolysis catalyst degradation studies; 7) Electrolysis catalyst modeling; 8) electrocatalysts for artificial photosynthesis or photo-electrochemical cells; 9) others. An “enhanced” edition of ECS Transactions is planned to be available at the meeting. All authors accepted for presentation are obligated to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than March 10, 2017. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Materials for Low Temperature Electrochemical Systems 3 Energy Technology Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division
Materials development is critical to the commercialization of electrochemical technologies including batteries, alkaline and proton exchange membrane fuel cells, electrolyzers, supercapacitors and other electrochemical applications/devices. This symposium will focus on both the fundamental and applied aspects of the materials for low temperature electrochemical technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to: 1. Electrocatalysis fundamentals in fuel cells, metal-air batteries and electrolyzers; 2. Electrocatalyst design, synthesis, characterization and performance/durability evaluation; 3. Design, characterization and evaluation of active materials for batteries and supercapacitors; 4. Experimental methods for membrane/ionomer design, synthesis, characterization and evaluation; 5. Modeling for guiding membrane materials development and for the prediction of membrane material properties; 6. Electrolytes and separators for batteries. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors accepted for presentation are encouraged to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than June 11, 2017. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format. All abstracts will be submitted online, questions and inquiries should be sent to the symposium organizers: Minhua Shao, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, email: email@example.com; Peter Pintauro, Vanderbilt University, email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Elizabeth Biddinger, City College of New York, email: ebiddinger@che. ccny.cuny.edu; Svitlana Pylypenko, Colorado School of Mines, email: email@example.com.
