231st ECS MEETING
NEW ORLEANS L
L—Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry, Electrocatalysis, and Photoelectrochemistry
Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry, Electrocatalysis, and Photoelectrochemistry General Session and Grahame Award Symposium Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division
Papers concerning any aspect of electrochemistry not covered by topic areas of other specialized symposia at this meeting are welcome. Contributed papers will be programmed in some related order, depending on the titles and contents of the submitted abstracts. 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: Alice H. Suroviec, Berry College, email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Andy Hillier, Iowa State, email: hillier@ iastate.edu.
Ion-Conducting Polymeric (or, Polymer-based) Materials Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, Battery Division Energy Technology Division
This Symposium is accepting both oral and poster contributions on all the fundamental and applied aspects of ion-conducting materials. Particular emphasis will be placed on experimental and theoretical studies on their structure, properties, interactions and mechanisms of charge migration. The applications of ion-conducting materials, both conventional and innovative (e.g., batteries, fuel cells, redox flow batteries, capacitors, supercapacitors, sensors, actuators and photo-electrochemical devices, not to mention the fields of microelectronics and biotechnology) will provide the justification for the fundamental studies. Cutting-edge topics of high fundamental and practical interest are welcome, comprising advanced energy conversion and storage systems (e.g., secondary batteries beyond the lithium ion, anion-exchange membrane fuel cells, redox flow batteries), electrochromic materials, permeation membranes and new microelectronic devices. 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: Vito Di Noto, University of Padova, email: email@example.com; Ahmet Kosoglu, ETD, email: akusoglu@ lbl.gov; Stephen J Paddison, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Tennessee, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Electrochromic and Chromogenic Materials
L03 Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division The symposium will provide an interdisciplinary forum for exchange of ideas and discussion of new results and crucial achievements in the electrochemical science and technology of electrochromic and related materials with respect to understanding their fundamental properties as well as their applications in such devices as windows or displays. Novel materials, devices design, and modeling will receive special attention. The proposed topics include, but will not be limited to novel materials for chromogenics applications, new synthetic and fabrication methods, thin-film techniques for preparation of chromogenic devices (sputtering, sol-gel, pulsed laser deposition, electrodeposition, etc.) or combinatorial approach in search for optimization of electrochromic materials. There has been growing recent interest in electrochromic materials capable of changing their optical properties in response to an external electrical charge insertion. Representative examples include self-darkening electrochromic rear view mirrors or roof electrochromic windows installed in cars or photochromic sunglasses. Other applications are also related to the infrared region, and they include thermal control for satellite or IR camouflage. In this symposium, attention will be paid to the architectural glazing and the various aspects of energy savings with use of electrochromic (or more general chromogenic) coatings. Electrochromic materials concern numerous chemical (organic, inorganic or hybrid) systems. In addition to continuing interest in traditional electrochromic materials, there is a need of developing of new materials through doping systems or alternating original synthesis routes. Additional attention will be devoted to designing devices and interfaces and optimization of critical parameters such as durability, stability, and switching times. Transparent electric and ionic conductors will be considered as well. Strong emphasis will be directed towards modeling and the fundamental and applied aspects of fabrication of novel (organic, inorganic, hybrid) polymeric micro- and nanostructures, experimental and theoretical studies of their properties, mechanisms and dynamics of charge propagation and electroactivity, coloration and bleaching. During symposium we are hoping to outline important directions for the future. 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: Pawel Kulesza, PAED University of Warsaw, email: email@example.com; Aline Rougier, CNRS Bordeaux (France), email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Xungang Diao, Beihang University, email: email@example.com; Delia Milliron, Univeristy of Texas at Austin, email: Milliron@che.texas.edu.
Electroanalytical Aspects of Environmental and Groundwater Problems Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, Organic and Biological Electrochemistry Division
Papers detailing aspects related to the determination of electrochemical properties (potentials, mechanisms of reactions, and, particularly, rates of electron transfer) of minerals and mineral interfaces with groundwater are solicited. Such papers may detail novel and new methods to make reliable measurements on such complex and heterogeneous surfaces
