Scientific Program

The environmental consequences of industrialisation and climate change are a serious problem worldwide. In view of these global problems, there is an urgent need to design and develop strategic research and analytical techniques with high effectiveness and precision that can be used in marine and environmental research. Versatile electrochemistry, as a well-established global scientific field dealing with the interactions between electrical energy and chemical changes, now offers the possibility to perform a wide range of qualitative and quantitative studies of various organic and inorganic compounds, as well as processes, mechanisms, etc. in a variety of natural matrices. This environmental electrochemical meeting aims to share existing knowledge and new ideas between theoretical and experimental electrochemists and electroanalysts to improve the application of electrochemical methods in marine and environmental research today and in the future. We are looking for new trends in technology as well as new needs for investigations in times of global climate change. Furthermore, we would like to encourage and invite especially young scientists (PhD students, postdocs) to participate, as the Meeting is a chance to present themselves, discuss their work and establish contacts. Authors are invited to submit their papers dealing with all aspects of the application of electrochemistry in marine and environmental research. Due to the great diversity and versatility of electrochemistry, specific topics include, but are not limited to:

• electrochemistry in the study of global biogeochemical cycles/processes
• electrochemistry in the identification and monitoring of emerging pollutants
• electrochemistry in the study of nano- and microparticles
• green electrochemistry; advances in the application of electrochemical sensors in the ocean and environment
• emerging electrochemical technologies in environmental remediation of pollutants
• electrochemical marine and environmental microbiology; microbial fuel cells
• corrosion, its control and protection
• electrochemistry in the study of atmospheric processes
• theoretical electrochemistry in marine and environmental research
• electrochemistry in the future; latest innovations and future challenges; artificial intelligence in environmental electrochemical measurement/ monitoring
