The Danish Electrochemical Society (DEF) is organising an annual two-day conference on Electrochemical Science and Technology, which will be held the 2nd and 3rd of November 2017. This year the event is co-organised by a number of R&D projects revolving around Fuel Cell and Electrolysis technologies for operation at low temperatures (< 200 ºC) such as polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM)-based cells and alkaline electrolysis cells. This area will be given special focus, though the conference still welcomes contributions from other parts of both fundamental and applied electrochemistry.

Special theme this year: Low-temperature fuel-cell and electrolysis technologies
Venue: Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby
Abstract deadline: 1st of September

Look here for more information.

Time and Date: 16:30-18:30, December 12th, 2016

Location: Room S10, Meeting Centre at DTU, Building 101, Lyngby

Speaker: The speaker this year is Professor Lars Peter Nielsen, Institute for Bioscience, Aarhus University. Who will give a presentation titled: "Nature is Electrified by Cable Bacteria".

Abstract:  Until 5 years ago nobody had imagined the living organisms with internal electrical wiring would exist. New research has shown that these so-called Cable Bacteria are widely abundant in aqueous environments, and they have the length of several centimeters. Their internal wiring is short-circuiting different half-cell reactions with wide implications for the biogeochemical cycling of matter. We can measure electrical fields and geochemical effects, but so far we do not fully understand how their internal, electrical wiring is constructed and how the electron transfer takes place.
