Abstract : The International Conference on Solid State Ionics (SSI-20), held every two years, is the flagship event attended by researchers worldwide. As such, it was the perfect opportunity to expand the field by promoting synergistic exchange with researchers in other fields and by fostering the growth of emerging young scientists. Importantly, 2015 represented the first time in 12 years that the conference was held inthe United States. This 20th iteration of the meeting represented a crucial opportunity for US participants, particularly students, to engage with the broader international electrochemistry and ionic-materials community. SSI-20 attracted a broad and diverse international attendance with more than 600 university, government, and industrial participants. Keeping with the broad, cross-cutting philosophy of this conference, presentations, posters, and discussion sections focused on a wide array of ionic materials, ionic transport and electrochemical kinetic fundamentals, and ionic-based technologies. The Conference provided an informal atmosphere for researchers to share exciting ideas, initiate new collaborations, and advance the state-of-the-art. ARO support for the conference was key in enabling travel funding for graduate students and younger scientists to attend and participate in this conference and to facilitate a dialogue among top experts and younger entrants in the field through poster sessions.
