Virtual Symposium June 2020 - Montréal ECS Student Chapter


I hope you are all well during this tumultuous period. As you know, scientific conferences will likely not occur until late 2021. Our student chapter is adapting to this situation by hosting its first ever virtual symposium. This offers us the ability to invite a speaker that would otherwise be prohibitively far. That being said, I am very excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Prof. Clare Grey from Cambridge University. The Grey group specializes in (amongst others) NMR and XRD techniques applied to Li-ion battery materials, supercapacitors and MOFs.

The symposium will take place on June 19th, 2020 at 10am. We are accepting abstracts for up to 4 student presentations (10 minutes each). The abstracts are to be sent to ecs.mtl.student.chapter@gmail.com using the attached template no later than June 5th, 2020. Please see the outline for submission posted on the Facebook Group.

You may also indicate whether or not you are interested in participating in a virtual poster session (more on this below). This will involve forming breakout rooms where attendees will join for more personal discussion about your work.


Virtual poster session:

This year we are hosting a virtual poster session. Send us a .pdf file with your poster. If selected, we will (optionally) put your poster on our Facebook page before the event and will set you up in a breakout room at the end of the talks to discuss your research with other attendees.
We are newly offering FREE ECS membership to participants. Registration is required for speakers and optional for attendees Follow this link and write “ECS Montreal Student Chapter” in the comments:
