Time to market is today crucial for new products. In particular the properties and the behaviour of materials must be known at the earliest possible stage of their manufacture or application. A workshop was organized to target electrochemical methods used for the characterization of steel surfaces. A comprehensive review was made of the state of the art of the most important and most widely used electrochemical methods with a particular focus on scanning techniques and a comparison of experiences made by various industrial, research and university laboratories and future developments were discussed in detail. Particular emphasis was to be paid to electroimpedance spectroscopy and to scanning vibrating electrode techniques. Other new promising methods were also included in form of review presentations. The proceedings are published in this volume. The workshop is hence subdivided into three sessions devoted to electroimpedance spectroscopy (EIS), scanning vibrating electrode techniques such as SVET, SRET or Kelvin Probe and other methods respectively.
