About the Electrical Insulation ConferenceThe inaugural EIC was held in 1958, and the conference was then held initially annually and then biennially. From 1976 the International Symposium on Electrical Insulation was held in the alternate years up to 2012. The IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) decide to merge both conference series and since 2013 the EIC has returned to being an annual event. The 33rd edition of the EIC will take place in Seattle, WA, USA from June 7 to 10, 2015. Presentations (both oral and poster) and short courses will be offered on the practical applications of electrical insulation systems and materials for all types of electrical and electronic equipment. Exhibits are also planned where manufacturers of various types of insulating materials and test equipment will display their products to the assembled engineering and research experts who typically attend the EIC.
