Past Meetings

Fall 2016

The Canadian Section of the Electrochemical Society held its Fall Symposium at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) on November 12, 2016. The meeting was organized by Prof. Brad Easton and Dr. Mohammadreza Ghavidel. The symposium theme was “Interdisciplinary Electrochemistry” and attracted more than 75 attendees (including academic researchers, graduate students, and industry members). The symposium was comprised of morning and afternoon sessions, a poster session, followed by a wine and cheese reception. Prof. Janine Mauzeroll (McGill University) delivered the keynote presentation, titled “Redox triggered vesicles: A promising approach for drug delivery”. Twelve other invited speakers presented lectures throughout the day. The poster session was followed by a wine and cheese reception where three student poster awards were presented to: Nakkiran Arulmozhi (First Place, Queens University), Matthew Genovese (Second Place, University of Toronto), Jeffrey Henderson (Third Place, Western University).

Spring 2016

The Canadian Section of the Electrochemical Society held its Spring  Symposium at Saint Mary's University. The meeting was organized by Profs. Christa Brosseau and Heather Andreas (Dalhousie). The symposium was dedicated to the memory of the late Prof. Sharon Roscoe, a long-time member of the ECS and a preeminent Nova Scotian electrochemist. The meeting theme was "Electrochemistry at the Interface" and featured a keynote lecture from Dr. Mark Orazem (U. Florida).
