The organising committee of the 'Electrochem 2014' conference cordially invite you to attend our exciting programme this year and become a part of our community.
The 'Electrochem' conference series has a long history. The 20th meeting is fast approaching and will be held at Loughborough University in September 2014. Coincidently, it is exactly 50 years ago that the first peer-reviewed research article was published by Noel Hampson and his co-workers signalling the birth of electrochemistry research at Loughborough University.
Today, the Electrochem conference series has emerged as an established annual UK and Ireland event, where a cross-disciplinary range of electrochemistry, fundamental and applied, is on show with a particular view on broadening exchange of knowledge, providing information about the latest research developments, linking academia to industry and suppliers, and engaging with the next generation of electrochemists and electrochemical entrepreneurs. Notably, this conference series has recently attracted distinguished colleagues from continental Europe and many other parts of the world.
The RSC Electrochemistry Group, the RSC Electroanalytical Sensing Systems Group, and the SCI Electrochemical Technology group have teamed up to support the organisation of this year's meeting at Loughborough University. The meeting takes place in conjunction with the 65th annual conference of International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), and received the official satellite meeting status from the ISE. The organising committee of Electrochem 2014 is gearing up for an exciting conference programme including plenary lectures from excellent speakers, symposia and poster sessions on a variety of highly important and timely topics in electrochemistry.
Some highlights of this year's event include the plenary lectures given by the 2014 Faraday and Geoffrey Barker medal winners, the Darryl Dawson memorial poster prize, the SCI poster prize, the Springer sponsored poster prize and the Gala dinner involving an electrochemistry community of over 200 participating colleagues from the UK, Ireland and rest of the world.
The list of symposia for 'Electrochem 2014' is:
- Electrochemistry of CO2 conversion
- Fundamental Electrochemistry
- Energy Harvesting and Conversion
- Electrochemistry of Advanced Materials & Nanomaterials
- Electroanalysis and Sensors
- Energy Storage
- Coordination/organometallic Electrochemistry
- Electrochemical Aspects of Fuel Cells
Electrochem 2014 is supported by the CO2 Chem network in the UK, the UK and Ireland Photochemistry Network and a long list of industrial partners.
Loughborough University is conveniently situated in an excellent location; just 15 minutes away from East Midlands airport and 45 minutes away from Birmingham international airport, both have very good flights links to many parts of the world. Loughborough is at the heart of England in the northern most part of the county of Leicestershire and being centrally placed it is well served by road, rail and air.
Main line road and rail networks link Loughborough directly with the rest of the country and the town itself is served by excellent bus services. London is one-and-a-half hours away by train, and Manchester and Leeds around two hours. Loughborough University is less than two miles away from junction 23 of the M1 motorway. Onsite parking facilities are available for visitors to Loughborough University.
