ICD2020 IMPORTANT COMMUNICATION
CHANGE TO A VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
Under the present circumstances, the International Steering Committee and the local organizers of ICD 2020 have decided to change the format of the ICD 2020 into a virtual conference.
We thank all the contributors who already uploaded their manuscript to the conference, despite the very difficult situation. Therefore, we want to provide them a virtual solution to present their work and have their conference paper published.
The proposed solution will consist of:
- On-line static structure for papers presentation
An on-line static structure will be available for registered attendants where authors will upload Power Point presentations with recorded sound to provide additional explanations. Users will find their sessions and authors should upload their presentations. In this structure, written comments and questions to authors will also be allowed as an important part of the contents. Discussion will not be in a streaming format but in writing to make them available for all users irrespective of the moment when they connect to the system. This virtual conference will be available for 1 month.
2. Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore publication
Electronic Proceedings of the conference will be available on-line for registered participants at a significantly reduced registration fee payment. Registered authors who have prepared a PowerPoint presentation will have their papers published on IEEE Xplore making them available worldwide.
We decided not to organize an on-line conference with video streaming due to the difficulties to find a convenient time schedule for all participants worldwide. This is why we selected a static non synchronous virtual system. Although we are aware of the limitations of this system compared to a real conference, we hope this format will provide an acceptable solution for the current situation.
Registration fees have been significantly reduced (you can find them here.
We will send out a survey to estimate the number of participants to this virtual conference.
Of course, if you do not feel comfortable with the proposed format of the conference, you can withdraw your paper. In that case, you can remove it from the on-line system or send us an e-mail to email@example.com.
The International and Local Conference Organization Committee of ICD is monitoring the impact of COVID-19 coronavirus disease crisis worldwide and consequently evaluating the situation of ICD 2020. With the circumstances relating to coronavirus Covid-19 changing day by day, our priority is to ensure the health and safety of our participants and staff.
We will provide new information about the conference by 15th April. Until that date, we recommend not to book any travel arrangement for the conference.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and your continued support.
We hope you and your dear ones will remain safe.
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 third edition of a series of biennial international Conferences on Dielectrics, fully sponsored by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society, will take place in Valencia, Spain, from Sunday 5th until Thursday 9th July 2020. 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 3rd International Conference on Dielectrics to be held In Valencia, Spain. The conference will run for tour 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.
