Welcome

The 5th edition of ICD, the International Conference of Dielectrics, fully sponsored by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society, will take place in Toulouse, France, from Sunday 30th June 2024 until Thursday 4th July 2024. Issued from the International Conference on Conduction and Breakdown in Solid Dielectrics (ICSD), ICD was initiated in Montpellier in 2016 with opening the door to liquid and gaseous dielectrics.

ICD is an interdisciplinary forum that provides a unique opportunity for researchers from industry, academia and research centers to come together to review their research activities. It covers researches in the field of insulating materials and dielectric phenomena, and on the behavior and properties of the electrical insulation in devices, under operational stresses. Topics of power devices as well as all systems involving insulations and dielectrics are covered. ICD fits into the mainstream necessity to develop the electricity vector in the energy field and responds to the aspirations of lifestyles more respectful of our environment.

Tutorial sessions will be held on the first day of the conference. Presentations and discussions will cover all areas of solid, liquid and gas dielectrics. A special session dedicated to Dielectrics in aeronautics and space will be organized, as a focus of one facet of transport electrification currently of importance, also as it is a domain in which Toulouse has substantial activity.

This conference series has a special relation with Toulouse, notably Laplace laboratory: it was created in Toulouse in 1983 under the name of International Conference on Conduction and Breakdown in Solid Dielectrics, and an edition returned to Toulouse in July 2004, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. The venue to Toulouse for this 5th edition of ICD (and 16th edition combining ICD and ICSD) is on the grounds of the 40th anniversary of the series.

Toulouse is a major European City in the field of Aeronautics and Space, with Airbus headquarters. Toulouse, nicknamed ‘Pink City’, due to the color of the predominant bricks, also has a marked southern European feel and charm. It can be easily reached with 26 Airline companies and 69 international destinations in 2024. We warmly invite you to save the date, to attend and to contribute to the 5th ICD.

Place:   Organized in Paul Sabatier University main hall, Auditorium Marthe Condat, 118 route de Narbonne, 31400 Toulouse, France.
