doi:10.1016/S0013-4686(13)00697-X The International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) was founded in 1949 by leading European and American electrochemists to serve the growing needs of electrochemistry. At that time, only a handful of scientists were members of the society – known as CITCE (Comité International de Thermodynamique et Cinétique Electrochimiques). Since then ISE has evolved and now comprises more than 3000 individual members, from more than 70 countries, and is organised in 40 Regional Sections. Both in dustrialised and developing countries from all ﬁve continents are rep¬resented. ISE is, therefore, a truly world-wide organisa- tion. ISE is a non-proﬁt-making organisation with its seat in Lausanne, Switzerland. The International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) is devoted to the advancement of electrochemical science and technology through the promotion of international contacts and the dissemination of scientiﬁc knowledge. For this ISE organises Annual Meetings and Spring Meetings which are held in different countries each year and which cover a wide range of current topics in fundamental and applied electrochemistry. The activities of ISE include the sponsoring of regional meetings, and of special meetings of limited participation devoted to particular subjects. A scientiﬁc journal, Electrochimica Acta, is edited by ISE and supplied to its members at a special rate. Individuals, non-proﬁt organisations, industrial companies and learned societies may become members of ISE. The adminis¬tra-tion of ISE is done by an Executive Committee, periodically elected by all members. The Regional Representatives together with the Division Oﬃcers form the ISE Council which advises the Executive Committee. The scientiﬁc activities of ISE are grouped into Scientiﬁc Divisions. They are organised and co-ordinated by the Committee of Division Oﬃcers headed by the President Elect. Upon joining ISE each member indicates his/her divisional interests. The history of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) is described in a series of articles published in Volume 45 of Electrochimica Acta and available in the web site of the Society (http://www.ise-online.org/geninfo/history.php).

Science, Journal of Power Sources, Journal of Applied Electrochemistry, Electroanalysis and Journal of Solid State
• reduced registration fees for ISE Meetings,
• access to the “members restricted area” of the ISE website,
• access to the full membership directory which contains the addresses of all the members of ISE,
• support from the Millennium Fund and the Presidential Fund,
• updated information on ISE activities.
Young members can apply for the Electrochimica Acta Travel Awards for Young Electrochemists and ISE Travel Awards for
ISE members participate fully in the Society’s activities which are aimed at advancing electrochemical science and technology,
disseminating scientifi c and technological knowledge, promoting international cooperation in electrochemistry, and maintain-
ing a high professional standard among its members.
How to become an ISE member
Becoming an ISE member is simple: you will fi nd a Membership Application Form on the Society web site (at the address:
http://members.ise-online.org/members/new_members.php), which you can fi ll in and submit online. In the application form
you will have to select up to three Divisions and indicate two sponsoring ISE members. Should it be diffi cult for you fi nding these
sponsors, please write to the Executive Secretary of the Society Dr. M. Musiani, e-mail: [email protected]. The membership
fee for the calendar year 2013 is 40 Euro (10 Euro for age below 30). Once your application is accepted, the ISE Offi ce will contact
you for the payment of the Membership dues.
