The Electrochemical Society (ECS) was founded in 1902 with 350 charter members. A first meeting was held at the Manufacturers Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on April 3, 1902, with 52 members in attendance. The Society will formally mark its Centennial by a return to Philadelphia, for its 201st meeting, May 12-17, 2002. Throughout the Centennial year, ECS will continue the commemoration with publications and other special events.
At the 201st ECS Meeting, there will be a full schedule of technical presentations; three special plenary lectures; two major exhibits on the history of electrochemical and solid-state science and technology, and on the history of the Society; as well as many other special events. The celebration at the meeting will conclude with a festive party for all meeting attendees on Wednesday evening.
A hardcover book of the Society's history is being published for the occasion, a special commemorative issue of Interface is planned, and the Journal of The Electrochemical Society will publish a series of special articles throughout the Centennial year.
