The Korean Electrochemical Society (KECS) was founded in 1998 as a non-profit scientific organization. The KECS was granted the permission as a corporation by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Korean government on May 30, 1999. The KECS aims to serve public interests and promote the development of electrochemical science and technology, especially for endless growth of electrochemistry-related industries in Korea. The KECS holds biannual domestic conferences and collaborates to organize KECS-Sponsored International Meetings (PRiME, ISE, ACEPS, PBFC, IMLB, IBA, ACSSI, ABBA, ACEC, ICAC, ICE, ILABS, IME, IPS, and so on). The KECS publishes both domestic and international journals, Journal of the Korean Electrochemical Society (JKES, since 1998) and Journal of Electrochemical Science and Technology (JECST, since 2010), and one domestic technology magazine (E.Chem, since 2010).
The KECS actively contributes to academic and technical activities based on electrochemical science and technology, such as (i) scientific meetings, (ii) international academic exchanges, (iii) technical supports and social cooperation with relevant companies, (iv) consultation, training and anything electrochemistry-related. As of today, the KECS consists of 8 committees, 8 divisions, 3 local branches, and an advisory council. Below are the 8 research divisions in KECS:
