The 12th International Symposium on Electrochemical Impedance Analysis (EIA) is the next link of the well established chain of EIA conferences held every three years.
Due to the Corona pandemic, after 2 unfortunately unsuccessful attempts to hold the conference as a face-to-face event in the beautiful Black Forest in Germany, we have decided to hold an online-only event. We are all aware that this means that the usual familiar and collegial atmosphere is not given, but we still want to make the best of it and organize a successful conference.
Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful technique for investigating the mechanisms of electrochemical reactions and charge transport properties of various materials and devices in different environments. EIS relates to almost all scientific disciplines, ranging from physical, organic, and analytical chemistry to biology and medicine. EIS registers important contributions in current and innovative fields such as electrocatalysis, corrosion, sensors, dielectrics, semiconductors, as well as in the rapidly growing areas of nanomaterials and nanotechnology, energy conversion, and storage.
EIS and related methods, such as modelling of EIS by equivalent circuits (EC), Differential Impedance Analysis (DIA), analysis of Distributed Relaxation Times (DRT) or Nonlinear Frequency Response Analysis (NFRA), are widely used to investigate electrochemical systems, i.e. their aging behaviour. Their sensitive dependence on measurement conditions especially in the mΩ and sub-mΩ impedance range requires careful investigation and subsequent definition of parameters affecting the results to come to meaningful conclusions.
EIA12 will provide a common platform for scientists and experts to share knowledge and recent ideas, to create a friendly environment for fruitful creative discussions on impedance spectra acquisition and data analysis, which are important steps in the impedance spectroscopy studies.
Students and junior scientists are welcome and encouraged to participate.
