Dear EIC 2018 Participants,

Welcome your visit of the official website of 36th Electrical Insulation Conference (EIC), a fully sponsored conference of the IEEE Dielectric and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS). The 2018 Conference will be held at San Antonio, Texas, the 3rd largest metropolitan area in Texas. San Antonio has a strong Hispanic history from early Spanish expedition & its proximity to Mexico. It has wonderful selections of food & drink, and has many tour attractions for the whole family. Two of the most famous ones, The Alamo and the River Walk, are both within walking distance from our conference hotel (Hyatt Regency-Riverwalk). Other attractions such as SeaWorld, Six Flag Fiesta Texas, Tower of America, etc. are all a short drive away.

We expect to have a strong technical program there to cover the application, development, analysis, testing, and service experience of electrical insulation field. We will also feature several short courses from well-known technical experts and many exhibitions from areas such as electrical insulation materials, electrical test equipment, instrumentation and sensors, etc. Another tradition for this conference is the Thomas W. Dakin Distinguished Technical Contribution Award to be presented during the banquet. Then, immediately after the Conference, series of working group meetings will be held for discussions related to new IEEE standards and revisions to existing standards. As usual, working group meetings are open to all interested participants.

Please explore our website and contact any member of our organizing committee if you have questions. I hope to see you there at San Antonio!

Thank you,

William Chen

EIC 2018, General Conference Chair
