Welcome to the IEEE 40th Electrical Insulation Conference 2022 sponsored by the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society. On behalf of the EIC2022 organizing committee, as General Conference Chair, I am honored and delighted to invite all of you to submit abstracts and participate in this major event. In 2022 the IEEE Electrical Insulation Conference is co-located with the 2022 IEEE Power Modulator and High Voltage Conference (IPMHVC). Two major conferences in one venue at the Knoxville Convention Center in Knoxville, TN, USA from June 19 – 23 of 2022.
The EIC is an annual applied conference on liquid, solid, and gaseous insulation materials. In 2020 and 2021 the EIC Technical Program had to be managed in a virtual environment due to COVID-19 pandemic. The organizing committee follows all governmental and local regulations to provide a safe and healthy environment. The conference is planned as an in-person event. It is time to get together with old friends, research colleagues and extend our professional network.
Exhibits and technical papers include the latest development of electrical insulation materials, condition assessment and diagnostics, instrumentation, transformers, switchgear, outdoor insulation, cable diagnostics, nano-dielectrics, testing technologies, and others. The pre-conference event features short courses from well-known technical experts in areas of partial discharge, transformers, cable, and rotating machinery.
Immediately after the Conference, a series of IEEE working group meetings will be held for discussions related to new IEEE standards and revisions to existing standards related to insulating materials. As usual, IEEE working group meetings are open to all interested guest participants.
Several important dates for EIC participants. The deadline for conference abstracts was extended from October 30 to November 15, 2021. The date of provisional acceptance notification of abstracts is now December 15, 2021. The deadline for full papers for peer review is January 31, 2022. Authors’ registration and full payment are required before March 30, 2022.
Papers approved and presented during the conference event will be published in the conference proceedings and will become accessible to other readers via IEEEXplore.
We look forward to your participation in the 40th Electrical Insulation Conference on June 19-23, 2022.
