The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) is the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology. Today, the organization’s scope of interest has expanded into so many related fields that it is simply referred to by the letters I-E-E-E (pronounced eye-triple-E).
IEEE is organized into 39 societies and 5 technical councils representing the wide range of technical interests.
DEIS is the Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society whose field of interest includes the study and application of dielectrics from the molecular level, through nano-structured materials, to insulation systems in industrial, commercial, and power system equipment, to emerging applications such as those at high power levels and in biological and other small-scale systems. DEIS supports the entire scope of this field from advancing the basic science, to enhancing the ability of practicing engineers to use emerging dielectric materials, to the development of standards for the prudent application of existing and new insulation systems.
Mission & Vision
DEIS is known as the Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE).
The objectives of the Society are technical, scientific, literary, and educational. DEIS strives for the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and the related arts and sciences, in consonance with the Constitution and Bylaws of the IEEE. DEIS provides special attention to the technical areas within its field of interest as follows:
The field of interest of the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society shall be the study and application of dielectric phenomena and behavior and the development, characterization and application of all gaseous, liquid and solid electrical insulating materials and systems utilized in electrical and electronic equipment. DEIS is also involved in the creation of voluntary engineering standards and the recommended practices related thereto.
DEIS promotes the close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members and to this end holds meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion. Through committees DEIS stimulates research, develops appropriate studies and standards, and sponsor periodic and special publications in the field of dielectrics and electrical insulation.
Welcome to the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) website. DEIS is the IEEE society that covers the general field of dielectrics, from the molecular level, through nano-structured materials, to insulation systems in industrial, commercial, and power system equipment, to emerging applications such as those at high power levels and in biological and other small-scale systems.
As of January 2014, DEIS has more than 2,300 members from 82 countries. DEIS organizes and support several conferences and workshops each year, publishes the IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation (TDEI) and the IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine (EIM), develops and maintains relevant IEEE standards, and presents awards in recognition to major contributors.
The DEIS website provides you with educational material, information of DEIS sponsored conferences and standards, and other activities. I encourage everyone to use your DEIS membership to its fullest potential. Not only will you receive discounted registration fees at all IEEE conferences and additional discounts at DEIS sponsored conferences, online access to TDEI and the EIM, but DEIS also provides you with many opportunities to network with others in your professional field. For DEIS to stay vibrant and technically up to date, we are always looking to new members and volunteers. Volunteering positions are available on conference organizing committees, on our technical committees, on chapters, as a reviewer or associate editor of the TDEI, and DEIS members are elected to the society’s governing administrative committee (AdCom) every year. If you are interested in dielectrics and not a DEIS member, I encourage you to join us.
