Title: Highlights from Faraday Discussion 172: Carbon in Electrochemistry, Sheffield, UK, July 2014

Abstract

Faraday Discussions have been very true to their name, focusing genuinely on healthy, in-depth, and fruitful discussions rather than just serving as a platform for one to one researcher interaction and collaboration. So the first experience of a Faraday Discussion is always an eye-opener about how lively conference discussions can become. The format follows that presenters submit full papers a few months in advance which are lightly reviewed before all the papers are circulated to each of the registered participants. Participants arrive at the conference prepared with their queries and arguments after having read the circulated manuscripts. At the conference the authors present their work for five minutes each followed by extensive discussion of 20–25 minutes, which is practically a ‘‘live peer-review’’. Moreover, this experience of a discussion-cum-peer review with participants ranging for PhD students to experts in the relevant field is both a daunting and a very enriching experience at the same time. This has been the trend since the first Faraday Discussions held in London in 1907 in London which debated ‘‘osmotic pressure’’,1 and this format clearly sets it apart from any other conference to date. All discussions form part of the peer review process and are sequentiallymore » recorded and published with the accepted manuscripts.« less
