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.
