IEEE Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena, Vancouver, BC, Canada

October 17-20, 2021

Welcome to the 98th IEEE Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena (IEEE CEIDP 2021) which will be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada from October 17-20, 2021.

IEEE CEIDP 2021 will be hosted at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel located in the center of Vancouver. The IEEE CEIDP 2021 will be co-located for the first time with the 16th IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (IEEE NMDC).

About CEIDP:

The CEIDP was established within the Division of Engineering and Industrial Research, National Academy of Sciences – National Research Council in 1920 in nearby Manhattan, NY, and continues to provide opportunity for specialists from around the world to meet and exchange their expertise, annually, now under sponsorship from the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society. 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.


The city of Vancouver in British Columbia, like in the rest of Canada, has a clear and official immunization plan to vaccine its population to stop COVID-19 and prevent any risk of spread in that location. To reassure all the CEIDP attendees, by the time of the conference in October 2021, Vancouver and British Columbia should have complete the vaccination of all its population (see projection Here). All the CEIDP participants seeking to travel over to Vancouver are invited to check and confirm with their own local government any potential travel restrictions before organizing their trip.
