General Chair of ICPADM 2018

    It’s our great pleasure to invite you to join us for 2018 12th International Conference on the Properties and Applications of Dielectric Materials (ICPADM 2018), which will provide a forum within the international academic and engineering community in the field of dielectric materials. 

    ICPADM 2018 is the 12th meeting of this conference series. ICPADM started in Xi’an in 1985 with the initial aim to provide a venue for Chinese electrical insulation and dielectrics researchers to communicate their research activities with the rest of the world. The IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society undertook the sponsorship of the new conference, which had its first meeting in June 24-28, 1985. More than 400 attendees made it a very successful meeting and it was decided to establish ICPADM as a continuing event on a triennial basis and to broaden its scope to cover the general Asia-Pacific region. Actually ICPADM attendees are from many countries outside the Asia-Pacific region. 

    ICPADM has a long history. The conference venues are: Xi’an China (1985, 1st ICPADM), Beijing China (1988, 2nd ICPADM), Tokyo Japan (1991, 3rd ICPADM), Brisbane Australia (1994, 4th ICPADM), Seoul Korea (1997, 5th ICPADM), Xi’an China (2000, 6th ICPADM), Nagoya Japan (2003, 7th ICPADM), Bali Indonesia (2006, 8th ICPADM), Harbin China (2009, 9th ICPADM), Bangalore India (2012, 10th ICPADM), Sydney Australia (2015, 11th ICPADM). 

    ICPADM 2018 will go back to Xi’an, China again. It will be sponsored by the IEEE/DEIS and organized by Xi’an Jiaotong University, State Key Laboratory of Electrical Insulation and Power Equipment. It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to participate in the forthcoming International Conference on the Properties and Applications of Dielectric Materials (ICPADM). 

    Xi'an is one of the oldest cities in China, with a history of more than 3,100 years. Called Chang'an before the Ming Dynasty, Xi'an is one of the birthplaces of the ancient civilization in the Yellow River Basin area of the country. This city used to be the capital city of 11 dynasties, and Xi'an is also the eastern terminus of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Warriors. The cultural and historical significance of the area, as well as the abundant relics and sites, help Xi’an enjoy the laudatory title of 'Natural History Museum'. 

    We are looking forward to seeing you in the very beautiful city Xi’an, China, during May 20-24, 2018. Definitely ICPADM 2018 will provide you a pleasant experience, new contacts and happy stay in Xi’an.
