Online Conference

You are invited to participate in the conference Electrocatalysis for Energy Applications and Sustainable Chemicals (EcoCat) which will take place from Tuesday 23th to Thursday 25th of November 2020, starting at 13:00h CET-Amsterdam-Madrid / 12:00h UTC.


This will be an online conference aiming for in-depth discussions between different disciplines of Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion, ranging from CO2 electrolyzers to (photo)electrochemical water splitting, covering electrochemical synthesis from an experimental and theoretical viewpoint, as well as industrial implementation and reactor engineering. This online conference will uniquely allow for exchange of knowledge and discussions about the most recent developments between researchers all over the world without the detrimental ecological and environmental effects of the fly-in meeting.


In general, the Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion community aims for the development of better and more efficient catalysts and processes for the use of (renewable) electricity to form or break chemical bonds. This aim is closely associated with the development of novel renewable energy solutions, such as energy storage (electrolyzers), energy conversion (fuel cells and batteries) and chemical production (CO2 reduction and ammonia synthesis). However, efficient communication between the different disciplines (electrochemical synthetic chemists, theoreticians and engineers) is needed in order to develop common technologies that aid the path toward a sustainable future. The main goal of this online ECOCAT conference is to connect the different disciplines within the Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion community.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Electrocatalysis for Chemical Production
  • Advances on theoretical methods for electrocatalysis
  • Electrocatalysis for Energy Storage and Conversion
What do I need to join?


In order to register to the conference, you need to sign up at nanoGe and buy your ticket.

Submit your contribution

Once you are registered you will be able to submit your contribution in the ‘Abstract Submission’ tab. You can submit:

  • Contributed Talk
  • ePoster

After the program is published, the oral abstracts not accepted as Contributed Talk can be presented as an ePoster. Please read the ‘Instructions for Authors’ tab.

Please check the submissions’ deadlines.

Login and join the conference

The scheduled date once logged into nanoGe,click the ‘Virtual Room’ tab (only available for registered users). In this tab you will find the live sessions and prerecorded contents available at any time:

  • Live sessions: the invited speakers’ session are a live broadcast. You will see a chat for participant’s interaction.
  • Pre-recorded contents: contributed talks are offered as pre-recorded video presentations. These can be found at the ‘Virtual Room’ tab.
  • Interaction with the authors:

Chat: Each video presentation has a chat available to ask questions.

Live Q&A Session: Live Discussion where the authors will respond the questions.

  • ePoster Session: It takes place in a chat platform, available from the ‘Virtual Room’ tab.
