Organising Team: Dr. Kevin Lam, University of Greenwich, Prof. Dan Brett, University College London, Prof. Robert Weatherup, University of Oxford
Theme 2: Fundamentals and Bioelectrochemistry
This theme will focus on the latest research on fundamental physical, analytical and biological electrochemistry, including electrochemical sensing, studies of fundamental electrochemical processes, and bioelectrocatalysis.
Organising Team: Dr. Katherine Holt, University College London, Dr. Frankie Rawson, University of Nottingham, Dr. Alison Parkin, University of York.
Theme 3: Electrochemical Methods, Materials and Interfaces
This theme will focus on the latest developments in electrochemical materials and interfacial electrochemistry, including the development of new electrochemical methodology, the development of new electrocatalysts and electrode materials, and novel studies of the electrode/electrolyte interface. 
Organising Team: Dr. Yvonne Grunder, University of Liverpool, Dr. Nuria Garcia-Araez, University of Southampton 


The conference will take place at the University Park campus of The University of Nottingham from 6-8 September 2020. 


University Park is The University of Nottingham’s largest campus at 300 acres. Part of the University since 1929, the campus is widely regarded as one of the largest and most attractive in the country.


Set in extensive greenery and around a lake, University Park is the focus of life for students, staff and visitors. The campus has been a Civic Trust Green Flag Award 

Winner every year since 2003 – the only university campus to achieve this status. 


Conveniently located only two miles from the city centre, the campus is served by efficient and affordable public transport links, with regular tram and bus links to Nottingham City Centre.  Further information about travelling to the campus can be found by clicking here.
