About The ECS Calgary Student Chapter

About ECS  Calgary Student Chapter


The Calgary ECS Student Chapter was established by chemistry graduate students at University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, and is the second ECS Student Chapter to be formed in Canada. Viola Birss serves as a faculty advisor, and PhD students Beatriz Molero Sanchez, Lucie Nurdin, Farbod Sharif, Behzad Fuladpanjeh, Yalda Zamani and Luis Daniel Virla Alvarado were elected as President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and members at large respectively. The Calgary ECS Student Chapter includes more than 25 members performing innovative research in electrochemistry.

This Student chapter provides a valuable link between students studying electrochemistry and industries located in Alberta. The Chapter aims to create opportunities for interaction with researchers and scientists from both academia and industry. The first Calgary ECS Student Chapter event was held on November 4, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the ECS Canadian Section. This successful event attracted new student members to the student chapter and to ECS.

Free the Science Week

The ECS Calgary Student Chapter organized a community engagement event to
celebrate Free the Science Week on the morning of April 3 rd , 2019 at the University of
Calgary. The Chapter’s main goal was to raise awareness about the Electrochemical
Society’s Free the Science initiative to the broader community. Their event featured free
snacks and coffee, as well as a screening of the documentary entitled “Paywall: The
Business of Scholarship” (by Jason Schmitt), which discussed the current state of the
academic publishing industry, as well as the benefits of open access. This event
attracted students, professors and researchers from the Faculty of Science and the
Schulich School of Engineering. Additionally, the Chapter’s committee members briefly
discussed the benefits of joining ECS, resulting in 7 new members. The awareness of
this event was especially important to researchers on campus who use electrochemistry
in their work, as the University of Calgary library currently does not have subscriptions
to all ECS journals. As Free the Science Week was held between April 1 – 7, 2019,
articles from the ECS Digital Library were freely available during this time, making
scientific research more accessible to everyone.
