49th Annual Meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry

13 - 18 September 1998,
Kitakyushu City, Japan

This conference was organized jointly by the Science Council of Japan and the Electrochemical Society of Japan and was sponsored by Kitakyushu City, IUPAC, the Commemorative Association for the Japan World Exposition, Asahi Glass Foundation, Tokyo Ohka Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology, and Ishikawa Carbon Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology.

Thirteen symposia were held in parallel at two sites, Kitakyushu International Conference Center and Rihga Royal Hotel Kokura, with the common theme of "Electrochemistry for Future Science and Technology". Symposia topics included fundamental electrochemistry, surface electrochemistry, photoelectrochemistry, biological and organic electrochemistry, advances in high-temperature electrochemistry, new tailored materials by electrochemistry, environmental electrochemistry, corrosion and surface technology, battery and energy storage, fuel cells, industrial electrolysis and electrochemical engineering, chemical/electrochemical sensors, and role of electrochemistry in chemistry and chemical education.

Contributed papers from 839 participants included 6 plenary lectures by Professors M. Ito (Japan), H. B. Gray (USA), N. Yamazoe (Japan), W. L. Worrell (USA), D. M. Kolb (Germany), and J. Saveant (France); 2 award lectures by Professors G. Lang (Hungary) and A. Wieckowski (USA); 66 keynote lectures; and 279 invited talks. Several industrial exhibitors also made technical presentations. Foreign attendees from more than 40 countries numbered 298 among the total of 1119 conference participants. During the meeting, a special exhibition of environmentally friendly vehicles also opened at the Conference Center.
