2012 CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry
University of Texas at Austin
February 11-12, 2012

See you in Austin! Each year, the CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry brings together experts in fields of engineering, materials, and electrochemistry to focus on a few topics in an important areas of electrochemical research. 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. Participants address specific challenges in the field, exchange ideas and information, and catch up with colleagues from around the world.

This exclusive workshop features 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. We anticipate a day of great speakers, with a casual atmosphere that fosters interaction between students, postdocs, faculty, representatives from industry, and national labs.

The workshop features technical presentations and posters from several different perspectives covering areas ranging from electrocatalysis, electrochemical sensors, and electroanalysis. The 2012 CEC Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry will be held February 11-12, 2012 and will focus on four main topic areas: Electrodeposition, Electroanalytical Chemistry, Bioelectrochemistry and Sensors, and Industrial Electrochemistry.

This year, the Workshop will be held at the Robert A. Welch Bulding (Welch Hall, or WEL) on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin, with a poster session and reception held a short walk away at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center (UTX), also on campus.

The workshop location is near to the many recreational and cultural attractions of the Austin Hill Country.The Austin campus is the site of 17 libraries and several world-class museums, and just a short walk or ride away fromcentral Austin attractions: the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum, the Texas State Capitol, Congress Avenue, and the 6th Street and Warehouse shopping and entertainment districts. Known as "The Live Music Capital of the World," Austin is a vibrant mix of Texas friendliness and cosmopolitan sophistication, with opportunities for outdoor recreation activities. The weather in Austin during February can be cool, but is generally mild: the average high is 65 F (18 C) and the average low is 44 F (7 C).
