Dear Colleagues and Friends of electrochemistry and of electrochemical engineering in particular,

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to attend the new, already 11th edition of the European Symposium on Electrochemical Engineering. This time it is being organized in Prague, Czech Republic, a city where the Nobel Prize winner for electrochemistry, Jaroslav Heyrovsky, was born and worked for most of his life. This makes Prague an inspiring venue for electrochemists. Although both the Symposium and the venue build on a long tradition, they offer a forum for new ideas and developments. And that is one of the chief targets of this event.

The overall motto is Today's research for tomorrow's technologies, thus addressing the key aim of our work: to understand electrochemical phenomena and their applications in daily life. Our motto covers the entire, fascinating range of research and development work, from understanding the fundamental principles to testing pilot plant installations. We both trust that we will all again have a chance to enjoy the immense richness of our common subject in Prague, which in the course of the previous editions has meanwhile become a tradition.

As already mentioned, the Symposium builds on a long tradition, but at the same time it is progressive, adopting innovative ideas and approaches. This is reflected in a round table on Electrochemical Processes which is being organized within the framework of the scientific program to strengthen contacts to industry and to promote knowledge transfer from academia to industry. Both industry and academia are herewith encouraged to participate in this interesting activity.

Back to tradition. It has also long since become traditional to publish a special issue of the Journal of Applied Electrochemistry based on selected contributions presented during the Symposium. Thanks to the courtesy of the journal’s EditorinChief Professor Gerardine Botte and its publisher Springer we are pleased to announce the continuation of this tradition for the coming event.

We look forward to seeing all of you in Prague in June 2017.

Chairman of the Organizing Committee

Manuel Rodrigo
Chairman of the WP on Electrochemical Engineering, EFCE

The conference will take place in The National Library of Technology, the largest and the oldest library of technical literature in the Czech Republic. Housed in a modern, ecological building situated in the heart of the Dejvice engineering and technology campus, NTK serves as a social and cultural centre, with frequent lectures, educational tours, events, and exhibitions.

The main target of the Symposium is to provide a focused forum for researchers and users of electrochemical technologies in a broad spectrum of existing and emerging fields of applications and thus to trigger an intense exchange of ideas and information. The program structure is designed to offer sufficient time both for oral and poster presentations and at the same time for informal discussions outside the lecture halls. The Symposium will focus on, but not be limited to, six keyword topics, as it is not possible to cover the field of electrochemical engineering in a few limited areas of research and development.

  • Green technologies for sustainable development
  • Electrocatalysis and electrochemical technologies
  • Safe water and air
  • Energy conversion processes
  • Bioelectrochemistry - a launch-pad for new frontiers in electrochemical technologies
  • Surface treatment and corrosion engineering
  • General session
