Invitation

You are cordially invited to the 23rd Topical Meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry, which will be held in Vilnius, Lithuania from 8 to 11 May 2018. The meeting will provide a good opportunity to present research results, to visit the beautiful city of Vilnius, to access the fastest internet in Europe and to explore the marvelous country of Lithuania. Lying at the crossroads of East and West, being the geographical centre of Europe, Vilnius is never more than three hours away from any European destination by air. Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is the home of the President, the Seimas (Parliament), the Government and the Supreme Court. Diplomatic missions, educational, cultural, financial, research, and healthcare institutions are based here. Electrochemical science has a long and storied tradition in Lithuania. It is a key field of study at the Centre for Physical Sciences and Technology (FTMC), which houses a large electrochemical research facility where numerous specialized techniques are taught and practised. Additionally, significant electrochemical tests and studies are conducted in the Faculty of Chemistry and the Centre for Life Sciences at Vilnius University. Other universities, such as Vilnius Gediminas Technical University and Kaunas University of Technology, also use electrochemical methods in a number of applications. In addition to hosting the Annual ISE meeting in Vilnius in 1986, the Lithuanian electrochemists have organized the ISE sponsored “Theodor Grotthuss Electrochemistry Conference” and the “Chemistry and Chemical Technology 2016”, dedicated to the 200th and 210th anniversaries of the first theory of electrolysis by Theodor Grotthuss, a world-famous scientist who spent most of his life in Lithuania. Special issues of “Electrochimica Acta” were entirely devoted to these successful conferences.
