Report on 2nd ECS Montreal Student Symposium


(as published in Interface, Vol 21, Nos 3-4)
Following last year’s success, the 2nd ECS Montreal Student Symposium took place on June 22nd 2012 at Université du Québec à Montréal in collaboration with the Centre Québecois sur les Matériaux Fonctionnels (Quebec Center for Functional Materials, CQMF). More than sixty participants from five Universities in Montreal and Ottawa, as well as a national research center attended the 15 talks and 13 posters, including the two invited presentations of Prof.Rolf Wüthrich (Concordia University) and Prof. Sasha Omanovic (McGill University). Prof. Wüthrich’s talk entitled “Lightening the Spark in Electrochemistry” included a fascinating introduction to the applications of electrochemical discharge, while covering the latest results of this research area. This was followed by the talk of Prof. Omanovic, “Enhancement of biocompatibility of coronary stents by electrochemically-assist surface functionalization”, which exemplified how important electrochemistry is to the field of surface chemistry even in such diverse areas as metal alloy-tissue hybridization. Prizes for the best oral ($100) and best poster ($75) presentations were awarded to Delphine Bouilly from Université de Montréal for her talk on “Covalently Functionalized Carbon Nanotubes for Electronics” and Mathieu Saulnier from Université du Québec à Montréal for his poster on the “Development of a 3D Porous Carbon Electrode for Lithium-Ion Batteries”.

2nd ECS Montreal Student Symposium

We would like to invite students and researchers in electrochemistry and materials science from all Quebec to join us for the 2nd ECS Montreal Student Symposium, sponsored by the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the Centre québécois sur les matériaux fonctionnels (CQMF). The event will take place on June 22nd 2012 on the campus of the Université du Québec à Montréal. As last year, the event will be free of charge for everyone. We are now accepting abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations. Please send your abstracts of less then 300 words to ecs.mtl.student.chapter@gmail.com.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you on June 22nd!


More details on the Symposium will soon be published here.

Report on the first ECS Montreal Student Symposium


(as published in Interface Vol. 20, No.4)
Montreal with its vivid electrochemical community offers now another opportunity for students to get in contact with the Electrochemical Society. The creation of the ECS Montreal Student Chapter is the first of its kind in Canada and will give students of all university levels in and around Montreal the opportunity to actively participate in events throughout the year. After an opening party in December 2010, the chapter introduced itself to the Montreal electrochemistry and solid state science students by organizing the first annual Montreal Student Symposium with the motto “exchanging electrons and ideas” on June 20th 2011. With three invited speakers, seven oral student presentations and ten poster presentations, the Symposium was a great success, showing the demand by Montreal students for a student electrochemical community. The topics ranged from electrochemical energy over analytical electrochemistry and electrochemical catalysis to photonic devices. Two prizes, sponsored by the ECS Canadian Section, were awarded to the best oral and poster presentations. The exchange between students and professors of all four Montreal universities and a national research center was highly encouraging and stands as an ideal recipe for future events. Further information about the ECS Montreal Student Chapter can be found at http://ecsmontreal.blogspot.com or visit us on facebook.
 35 participants followed the three invited talks and the seven student talks.
During the two hour poster session different electrochemical topics were discussed.
The winners of the presentation prices Julia Agullo (left, oral presentation) and Sana Dhaybi (right, poster presentation). Both prices were financed by the ECS Canadian Section.
