October 18-30, 2020


 Under the present circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CEIDP Executive Committee and the local organizers of CEIDP 2020 have decided to change the format of the CEIDP 2020 into a virtual conference. 
 We thank all the contributors who already uploaded their manuscript to the conference, despite the very difficult situation and encourage the other contributors to do it by June 24, 2020 (extended deadline). Consequently, we are going to provide all the participants a virtual solution to present their work and have their conference paper published. Moreover, the registration fees will be significantly reduced and a fixed registration fee of US $100 will be charged to anybody who wants to attend the conference. More information will be notified during the following weeks.

  • Manhattan skyline

About CEIDP:

The goal of this annual Conference is to bring together researchers in all disciplines from industry, universities, government, and other laboratories to discuss the latest results and developments in the area of electrical insulation and dielectric phenomena.

The conference location is in the Americas. Original contributions are welcomed in theoretical and experimental aspects of dielectric, electronic, and electrostatic research on vacuum and gaseous media and on liquid and solid materials of organic and inorganic origins.

The CEIDP is aimed at fostering free discussion of scientific and technical topics but conference participants are expected to avoid any commercialization of their research activities or research results.

Membership in IEEE, DEIS, or other organizations is not required to participate in the Conference. However, it is strongly encouraged that CEIDP Board and Executive Committee are chosen from among the DEIS members.
