Call for Papers

The International Conference on Solid Dielectrics is a triennial conference that has been successfully held around Europe since its inauguration in Toulouse, France in 1983 as the International Conference on Conduction and Breakdown in Solid Dielectrics.

The eleventh conference in the series (ICSD 2013) will take place from Sunday June 30th, until Thursday, July 4th at the University of Bologna, Italy.

ICSD is an interdisciplinary forum which provides a unique opportunity for researchers from industry, academia and research centers to come together to review their

We warmly invite you to attend and to contribute to the 11th International Conference on Solid Dielectrics to be held in Bologna, Italy. 

The conference will run for four days. Tutorial sessions will be held on the first day of the conference. Papers are invited in all areas of solid dielectrics with a focus on the following areas:

  • Conduction, polarization and breakdown
  • Space charge and related effects
  • Ageing, degradation and failure
  • Materials and insulation systems
  • Theories, methods and models
  • Diagnostics and experiments
  • Treeing
  • Multifunctional materials
  • New materials for active and passive components
  • Composite insulation systems
  • Nano-dielectrics
  • Microelectronics and photonics
  • Eco-friendly dielectrics and recycling
  • Biodielectrics
