ISE logos for sponsored meetings
What is an ISE sponsored meeting? You may have noticed that scientific meetings in the field of electrochemistry are often labelled 'ISE sponsored Meeting'. What does this mean?
In addition to organizing its own meetings, such as the Annual ISE Meeting and Spring ISE Meeting, Divisional Meetings (organized by one or several ISE Divisions) and National or Regional meetings (organized by one or several National ISE Sections), ISE may sponsor other international scientific meetings in the area of electrochemistry. ISE sponsorship is intended to be a sign of quality for the meeting.
What are the requirements for ISE sponsorship? ISE requires that the scientific quality of the meeting reaches the standard of its own meetings. It is desirable that the advisory board consists of ISE members, as far as possible. The meeting must be open to all ISE members.
Who decides? The decision is normally taken by the officers of the ISE Division in whose field of interest the topic of the meeting lies. ISE Division Officers should be involved in the organisation of the meeting. The ISE Executive Committee decides on the sponsorship for meetings of general interest or when the request involves more than 2 divisions.
The conference organizers must specify in the form whether they would like to get such a sponsorship from 1 or 2 ISE divisions or from the ISE EC.
What are the obligations of the organizers? The organizers have to publicise the ISE sponsorship in all the official documents related to the meeting (announcements, program, website etc.). At the meeting, a representative of ISE must be allowed to say a few words on behalf of the Society, and ISE must have the opportunity to advertise. After the meeting, the organizers should submit a short report to ISE to be published on the ISE website.
What do the organizers receive from ISE? ISE publishes announcements, programs and reports of ISE sponsored meetings on the ISE website. The ISE Office can provide address lists and mailing labels of ISE members, or it can organize mailings to all, or a group of, ISE members. These services are free of charge except for postage costs for mailings. In appropriate cases, there may be a special issue of Electrochimica Acta associated with these meetings.
What about money? ISE sponsorship of a meeting does not automatically imply a financial contribution from ISE. However, the sponsoring Division(s) may use its funds to support such a meeting. A financial contribution of up to 600 Euro Francs may be allocated to meetings sponsored directly by the Executive Committee.
How to apply for ISE sponsorship? If you would like to have the scientific meeting you are organizing sponsored by ISE, please fill in the form below and send it as an e-mail attachment to the ISE Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least three months in advance of the time of the meeting.
If possible, the application should list the main theme and the topics of the meeting, the ISE membership of the advisory and the organising committees, the ISE Division Officers involved in the organisation of the meeting (if any), a preliminary program, the date and location, and any other useful information. The decision will be taken by the Officers of the sponsoring Division(s), or by the Executive Committee. Then, the ISE Office will inform the organisers.
