For all deadlines, please refer to page 3.

Abstract Submission

To give an oral or poster presentation at the 231st ECS Meeting, you must submit an original meeting abstract for consideration via the ECS website, no later than December 16, 2016. Faxed, e-mailed, and/or late abstracts will not be accepted. Meeting abstracts should explicitly state objectives, new results, and conclusions or significance of the work. Once the submission deadline has passed, the symposium organizers will evaluate all abstracts for content and relevance to the symposium topic, and will schedule all acceptable submissions as either oral or poster presentations. In February 2017, Letters of Acceptance will be sent via email to the corresponding author of all accepted abstracts, notifying them of the date, time, and location of their presentation. Regardless of whether you requested a poster or an oral presentation, it is the symposium organizers’ discretion to decide how and when it is scheduled.

Paper Presentation

Oral presentations must be in English; LCD projectors and laptops will be provided for all oral presentations. Presenting authors MUST bring their presentation on a USB flash drive to be used with the dedicated laptop that will be in each technical session room. Speakers requiring additional equipment must make written request to meetings@electrochem.org at least one month prior to the meeting so that appropriate arrangements may be worked out, subject to availability, and at the expense of the author. Poster presentations must be displayed in English, on a board approximately 3 feet 10 inches high by 3 feet 10 inches wide (1.17 meters high by 1.17 meters wide), corresponding to their abstract number and day of presentation in the final program.

D02 Dielectric Science and Technology Division

D03 Packaging Dielectric Science and Technology Division

This Symposium aims to provide forum for extensive and in-depth discussions in the field of plasma nanoscience and nanotechnology as well as developing the next-generation plasma-based nanotechnologies. One of the motivations to organize this Symposium is an ever-increasing and more and more widespread use of plasma-based tools and techniques for nanoscale synthesis and processing. The Symposium is planned as an expert meeting with open participation and will include overviews of some of the most important research directions in this field followed by the comments and detailed discussions of the main challenges and strategic directions for the future development given by leaders in relevant areas. It is also planned to develop a coordinated international approach towards achieving stronger impact of this research field on the emerging nanoscale and other technologies that may benefit from the use of effective, cheap, and environmentally-friendly plasma-based technologies.

Low dielectric constant materials have been critical to reducing the RC time constant for interconnect on-chip, on-interposers, and in electronic packages and boards. The ITRS calls for dramatic improvements in dielectric constant (both permittivity and loss) and other physical properties, such as thermal expansion, thermal conductivity and modulus, at all levels of interconnect including chips, interposers, packages, and substrates. This symposium will focus on advances in dielectric materials, processing, characterization, and reliability for interconnect dielectrics. The application areas include (1) on-chip; (2) organic, silicon, and glass interposers, (3) package substrates; (4) printed circuit boards; and (5) other interconnect media.

Multiscale Modeling, Simulation, and Design

Electrochemistry and Electrochemical F03 Industrial Engineering Division, Energy Technology Division

This symposium provides a forum for tutorial, invited and regular research presentations concerning all aspects of multiscale modeling, simulation, control and design of electrochemical systems. Contributions related to both fundamentals and applications are encouraged. From this meeting on wards the symposium on Electrochemical engineering for 21st century will be merged into this multiscale symposium. New electrochemical applications are being discovered where the control of events from molecular to macroscopic length scales is critical to product quality and process control. In addition, improvements in many existing technological systems are today based on understanding how to control electrochemical events occurring at near molecular length scales. Future trends in electrochemical engineering will be influenced by the need to control processes and insure quality at the molecular scale. Transfer of molecular-scale understanding and discoveries into new and improved products and processes requires integration of system behavior across a range of length and time-scales. New engineering approaches are needed that couple traditional current-and potential-distribution approaches to molecular-scale events in order to accurately describe and design systems to meet the needs of the next century. For example, such an approach will open the way to exploiting self-assembly during processing. This symposium focuses on the role of molecularly coupled electrochemical engineering in addressing future technology challenges of the 21st century. Topics include: (1.) experimental and theoretical methods for understanding and describing behavior in electrochemical systems at the molecular level; (2.) new engineering methods and simulation algorithms with improved computational efficiency and quantification of uncertainty that enable coupling to molecular-scale processes for the design, control and optimization of entire, realistic systems, including those where stochastic events influence quality; and (3.) use of molecular understanding, design and/or control to address 21st century electrochemical engineering applications such as NEMS, MEMS, and electronic device fabrication; systems and materials for stationary power (from photovoltaic systems and fuel cells to energy storage devices and hydrogen generation); power systems for transportation; electrochemically enabled devices, systems, and products for medical technology; and corrosion systems, among many others. Both fundamental and applied papers that address the symposium topics are encouraged. The symposium will include a few invited speakers who will give historical and future perspectives including tutorials of the underlying science in various fields and its anticipated implementation in technology. The tutorials should be useful for students and for professionals seeking to diversify their background or break into new technological areas. The symposium will consist of both invited and contributed papers. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.

Applications of Electrochemistry to Additive

F04 Manufacturing Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical

Engineering Division, Electrodeposition Division

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3-D printing, is an emerging science and technology that builds 3D objects by adding layer-upon-layer of material. These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry, and are produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source. Initially, the major interest has been in fabrication of low-volume parts that do not possess economies of scale. However, as the technology matures, there is increasing application to larger volumes across industries such as automotive, aerospace and medical. Papers are solicited in the application of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering to additive manufacturing, for both metallic and conductive polymeric materials. Of particular interest are papers concerning: additive processes, subtractive processes, scalability, post-process surface treatment, testing of microstructural, material and functional properties, modeling and techniques, and corrosion of additively manufactured structures. Papers may contain results of both theoretical and experimental investigations. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.

Solid-Gas Electrochemical Interfaces 2 – SGEI 2 High Temperature Materials Division

Electrochemistry in many solid-state electrochemical processes and devices (such as gas electrolysis, fuel cells, ionic separation membranes, metal-air batteries, and gas sensors) occurs within a localized region near the interface between the reactant gas and one or more solid phases. During the last 10-15 years, it has become increasingly clear that the composition, structure, and/or properties of materials within this localized region deviate substantially from the bulk material(s) comprising the electrocatalyst. Examples include stoichiometry variations in the vicinity of a three-phase boundary (TPB), enhanced activity near solid-solid heterointerfaces, cation segregation associated with surface reconstruction, and cation stratification/interdiffusion or secondary phase precipitation near gas-solid or solid-solid interfaces. Recent advances in both analytical techniques and modeling are beginning to shed new insights into these local variations in structure/composition, and the role they play in governing local rates. These include new in situ experimental methods

that probe the thermodynamic state of the solid bulk and surface under finite driving force, scanning probe and other methods that can spatially resolve local variations in conductivity, structure, composition, and reaction rates, and modeling methodologies that consider heterogeneity and local properties, including ab initio methods that consider variations in structure/composition at surfaces. 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.

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.

M—Sensors

This symposium will address all aspects of Nano/Bio Sensors using nanomaterials as well as other materials. Nanomaterials have structural features and properties in between those of single atoms/molecules and continuous bulk materials. Nanomaterials have at least one dimension in the nanometer range (1 nm = 1 x 10-9 m). The nanoscale dimensions of nanomaterials bring optical, electronic, magnetic, catalytic and other properties that are distinct from those of atoms/molecules or bulk materials. In order to exploit the special properties that arise due to the nanoscale dimensions of materials, researchers must control and manipulate the size, shape, and surface functional groups of nanomaterials and structure them into periodically ordered assemblies to create new products, devices and technologies or improve existing ones. The art of controlling/manipulating the properties and utilizing these nanomaterials for the purpose of building microscopic machinery is termed as nanotechnology. Papers are solicited in nanostructure technology that has opened up a new perspective for the development of improved bio sensors. These sensors are employed in the areas of medicine, food, agriculture, industry, and environmental monitoring. These technological innovations have improved the sensitivity, accuracy, and flexibility for the analysis of chemical and biochemical compounds. Moreover, the recent progress in micro and nanotechnology allows a cost effective production of miniaturized devices in various types of materials. Progress in polymer micro technology providing the opportunity of using disposable devices in various fields of application is also solicited. As a result, life sciences research and development methods are becoming faster, more automated, and less subjective or error prone. Furthermore, nano/biosensors that are used as novel tools for the analysis of genetic structures and their influence on cellular functions that allows the entire focus of medicine to shift from diagnosis and treatment to identification and prevention are amongst the current hot topics in sensors. These technologies may also augment drug discovery with diagnostics that could eventually allow widespread production of individually tailored patient-specific treatments and therapies. 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.

Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems General Session Sensor Division

This symposium will address all aspects of chemical and biological sensors, actuators and microsystems. A companion symposium concerning the corresponding aspects of physical sensors and actuators may be found under Topic S. Chemical and biological sensors find extensive application in environmental monitoring, health care, food security and industrial quality assurance, safety and process control. Sensors and actuators are often integrated into “smart” microsystems: microfabricated sensors and/or actuators combined with electronics which enable, for example, signal conditioning and data processing. The need for multifunctional, smart technologies, which depend on sensors, actuators and electronics, is expected to increase in coming years as further demands and expectations are placed on systems and devices. This general session welcomes papers on all aspects of chemical and biological sensors, actuators and microsystems not covered in other sessions. This symposium intends to bring together a range of interdisciplinary topics and covers all materials aspects of sensors, actuators and microsystems. Primary emphasis will be placed upon applied aspects of the materials, synthesis, evaluation and development strategies of novel materials/ device configurations for sensing and actuating functions as well as integrated microsystems. Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas: (1.) physics and chemistry of sensor and actuator materials, fabrication, and characterization of novel compositions; (2.) novel sensor and actuator concepts, design, modeling, and verification, system integration and actuating functions; (3.) sensing systems that include sampling systems and actuators, like sensor arrays, and electronic noses/tongues; (4.) chemical and biological sensors and actuators based on various transduction mechanisms including electrochemical, resistive, fluorescence, surface plasmon resonance, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, fiber optics, radio frequency, microwave and surface acoustics; (5.) emerging technologies and applications including chemical and biological sensors based on nanotechnology, (6.) wireless integrations; and (7.) novel techniques to expand and ensure sensor stability and reliability. 17

Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing 2 All Divisions, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

The chemical industry confronts the challenges of reliable energy supply, reducing carbon emissions, increasing the energy efficiency of manufacturing technologies, waste reduction, and water conservation that can hinder and jeopardize growth and global competiveness. New transformational, disruptive, and enabling technologies are needed that will provide solutions to the chemical industry beyond incremental manufacturing improvements. Sustainable manufacturing aims at minimizing negative environmental impacts using economicallysound processes while conserving energy and natural resources. Electrochemistry has the potential to provide such a transformational solution to conventional manufacturing. This symposium will provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent developments on the application of electrochemical processes to traditional chemical processes that had enable and/or could lead to sustainable materials processing and manufacturing. Oral and poster presentations will be featured. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: (1) new electrochemical technologies for water (treatment, reuse), materials synthesis and/or recycling (2) production of various industrially relevant chemical substances (3) sustainable advanced electrode materials and structures, (4) life-cycle analysis demonstrating the impact of electrochemistry in sustainable manufacturing, (5) advances cell and system design, including reactant and product flow, heat transfer, and stack level materials corrosion; (6) materials of construction of electrochemical plants (7) modeling and simulation of electrochemical phenomena and processes; (8) techno-economic analysis of sustainable manufacturing techniques; and 9) advances in high temperature materials and chemical processing for electrochemical energy conversion and storage. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.

Nature-Inspired Electrochemical Systems 2 All Divisions Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

In recent years, engineers and scientists have taken inspiration from the natural world to design new materials, algorithms and devices. Several successes have been realized in the fields of mathematics, robotics, polymer synthesis, new heterogeneous catalysts, etc. Some specific examples include the development of advanced algorithms that were able to predict Newton’s laws of motion from experimental data, synthesis of polystyrene in plants, catalyst for solar fuel conversion, and the emergence of microbial fuel cells that have good potential for industrial wastewater treatment applications. However, the realization of similar advances for electrodes, electrolytes, and cell architecture have been slow and a concerted effort in this area has the potential to have a broad societal impact as electrochemical devices are expected play key roles in energy conversion and storage in the 21st century. This symposium will focus on the invention and recent advances in electrochemically relevant materials and systems. Areas of interest include: (1) the use of biological agents to control the growth, size, shape, or function of electrodes or electrolytes; (2) electrodes and electrolytes whose structure or function seek to mimic a naturally-occurring system; (3) devices that utilize electrochemical processes to mimic or re-create a microhabitat or naturally occurring system; (4) in vivo or in vitro use of electrochemical devices to treat disease or control of cells for disinfection/sterilization; and (5) direct use of biological materials in electrochemical devices as electrodes/ electrolytes or promoters of electrochemical processes. 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: William Mustain, Univ. Connecticut, email: mustain@engr.uconn.edu; Huyen Dinh, NREL, email: huyen. dinh@nrel.gov; Hui Xu, Giner Inc., email: hxu@ginerinc.com; Mike Carter, KWJ Engineering, email: mtcarter62@comcast.net; James D.

Quality Publications

ECS Author Choice Open Access gives you the opportunity to make your papers freely available to any scientist (or anyone, for that matter) with an Internet connection, increasing your pool of potential readers. Papers not published as Open Access can only be read by those from a subscribing institution or those who are willing to pay a fee to access it.

Our two peer-reviewed titles are among the most highly-regarded, highly-cited, and highly-ranked in their areas. Choosing to make your paper Open Access within these journals makes no difference to the quality processes we uphold at ECS—selection criteria and peer review remain exactly the same. ECS publications have always focused on maintaining the highest standards of peer review, and we will continue to maintain these practices for all manuscript submissions.

Free the Science, Save the World

When publishing Open Access the copyright remains with the author.

4

The author selects one of two Creative Commons (CC) usage licenses defining how the article may be used by the general public.

4

CC BY license is the most liberal allowing for unrestricted reuse of content, subject only to the requirement that the source work is appropriately attributed.

4

CC BY-NC-ND license is more similar to the current usage rights under the transfer of copyright agreement: it limits use to noncommercial use (NC), and restricts others from creating derivative works(ND).

Keep Your Copyright ECS’s Open Access publishing agreement with authors does not require a transfer of copyright: the copyright remains with the author. Authors, however, must choose what kind of license they want to grant their readers. ECS offers a choice of two Creative Commons usage licenses that authors may attach to their work (see sidebar).

Article Credits You can publish your papers as Open Access for FREE if you have an Article Credit. ECS members receive one complimentary article credit per year. Authors coming from institutions with an ECS Plus subscription qualify for unlimited article credits. For members who have already used their article credit, we offer a discounted Article Processing Charge (APC) of $200 per article (that’s 75% off our already low rate—$800).

Electrochemistry and solid state science have never been more important to global health and sustainability. Our community is making key discoveries in renewable energy, medical technology, and more. Such important discoveries need maximum discoverability. Author Choice Open Access is a good start, but ultimately we hope to open access to our entire Digital Library without charging any publication or subscription fees. We’ve launched the Free the Science initiative to make this vision a reality.
