IEEE 2022 International Conference on Dielectrics 3rd to 7th July, Palermo (Italy)

Oral (plenary) presentations:                        

For the participants to the Oral Plenary Sessions in virtual mode the link zoom is available by clicking here

Otherwise the link Zoom is:

The passcode to enter the sessions is the same as the Gather access password.

An alternative way to access Zoom oral sessions is directly in Gather ICD 2022 ambient. Enter the “Oral Sessions” hall Vincenzo Li Donni and go near the stage screen, then click “X”.

Presenters: Each author has 20 minutes available, maximum 15 minutes for the presentation and 5 for the questions. Presenters can use the house style of their institution for slides and provide either a PPT or PDF file. Presentation files for attendees that take part via remote attendance need to be uploaded as PPT or PDF copy by June 26, 2022. This is to enable the session chairs to show the presentation slides via Zoom, in case there are technical issues preventing any authors to do so themselves. Only session chairs and co-chairs will have access to presentation files, and the files will be deleted after the conference.

Sessions will typically open 15-30 minutes before the start to allow session chairs to add to the computer the presentations of in person presenters and to verify microphones and/or camera are working for remote presenters and the ability to share their screen.

Participants: In order to save bandwidth and to allow for smooth proceedings, remote participants will be muted and not be able to share their video-feed when logging in. After logging in, please confirm that you are muted and that your camera is disabled. If you have a question to a presenter, please use the chat functionality to bring attention to yourself. Session chairs will then address you and enable you to use your microphone to ask a question. Please start your question by stating your name and affiliation. In case you have no functioning microphone, you can also ask questions in the chat, which will then read out by the session chair. Questions can be written in the chat during the presentation, you do not need to wait for the presentation to end.

Poster presentations (Gather App):

The new ICD 2022 Gather access is now available at the Gather ICD 2022 page.

All participants, in person and virtual, attend the poster sessions on Gather App ( Moving with personal avatar on the virtual map you can participate in the poster sessions in the same way as the “real” poster sessions, but without the need to print the poster. Each poster session, which will be held in real time as scheduled, has a dedicated virtual room and each author has a virtual poster panel in which their poster is displayed as an A0 size image for a time of 1 hour and 40 minutes. The authors who present the poster have a position assigned and indicated with a colored circle at the bottom left of each virtual poster panel. The other participants will be able to access the rooms and, approaching the posters, view them and interact with the author via video camera and computer audio. Papers will be published in the conference proceedings only if at least one of the authors is present near the poster for the entire time of the session. It will be up to the session chairs to verify the presence of the authors.

The link to the IEEE ICD 2022 Gather environment will be provided to all registered conference attendees. All authors of a poster presentation have to send the poster as an A0 png or jpeg image (width: 841mm height: 1189 mm), with resolution not less than 60 pixel/cm and maximum size of 5 Mb, via ConfTool by June 26, 2022.

Attendees in person will have some classrooms dedicated to poster sessions where they can connect their personal computer to the electricity network and to the Wi-Fi network. These classrooms are equipped with Schuko CEE 7/4 electrical sockets and Italian bipasso sockets. Please be careful if you need to bring an adapter. Usb-type headphones with microphone will be provided by the organization but do not forget to bring your own too.

Important note:

In person attendees, remember to bring your laptop to attend the poster sessions.

Further details will be provided soon.

All conference times are Central European Time (CET). Please use a time-zone converter to establish what local time the sessions start for you. 

The poster template is now available on the authors page

After eleven successful meetings since the inauguration in Toulouse, France, in 1983, the International Conference on Conduction and Breakdown in Solid Dielectrics (ICSD) has opened the door to liquid and gaseous dielectrics to give birth to the International Conference on Dielectrics (ICD) in 2016. The widening of the scope is in recognition of the fact that many breakthroughs in science occur at the interface between different areas and that the solid, liquid and gaseous dielectrics communities will benefit from more interaction.

The fourth edition of a series of biennial international Conferences on Dielectrics, fully sponsored by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society, will take place in Palermo, Italy, from Sunday 3rd until Thursday 7th July 2022. The 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.

We warmly invite you to attend and to contribute to the 4th International Conference on Dielectrics to be held In Palermo, Italy. The conference will run for four full days and one half day. Tutorial sessions will be held on the first day of the conference. Papers are invited in all areas of solid, liquid and gas dielectrics. Special attention is given to topics focusing on the interfaces between solids, liquids and gases.
