DEIS Fully Sponsored Conferences

DEIS sponsors a series of international conferences to provide a forum for members and non-members to participate and share research results, new developments, and practical experience in the Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation fields. Some conferences are held annually, while others are bi-annual or even every 3 years. The following is a listing of these events with a description, frequency, and next venue. Be sure to mark your calendars for the events of interest to you and look for announcements from the organizing committees. An up-to-date listing of conferences is also available at the DEIS website:
