3rd Thematic School on Dielectrics, Porquerolles, France

After 2018 and 2021, we are pleased to announce the opening of pre-registrations for the 3rd Thematic School on Dielectrics, organized in Porquerolles island, France, from September 1520, 2024. (Websitehttps://seedsschool2024.sciencesconf.org/)

This Thematic School, fully in English to welcome people from everywhere, intends to train Scientists, Researchers, PhD students, Engineers and Technical staff coming from both Academia and Industry and all interested in the field of Dielectrics from their fundamental basics to their applications in electrical and electronic engineering.

For this third edition, the School will be focused on « Multifunctional Composite Insulating Materials for Electrical Applications » covering a broad range of sub-topics in the field of composites and nanocomposites: 

  • Issues & challenges related to multifunctional composites insulators
  • Theoretical basics concerning dielectric properties
  • Synthesis & processes of (nano)composite materials
  • Nanocomposite polymers: Relationship structure/dielectric properties
  • Nanodielectric phenomena
  • Composites with gradient properties for field grading
  • Composites with improved thermal properties
  • Composite dielectric polymers for energy storage
  • Aging of (nano)composite insulators: resistance to DP and lifespan
  • Modeling of dielectric phenomena at composite interfaces
  • Nanostructured inorganic thin layers for microelectronics
  • Insulation characterization techniques
  • Prospects for composite materials and sustainable development

We wish to maintain what made the originality and strength of the two previous editions: the intervention of renowned researchers through plenary lectures, the international openness and the articulation of courses with situational approaches through practical works / workshops. These lab-work, brought specifically on-site, will cover the use of modelling tools as well as supporting experimentation for dielectric characterizations.

We are already pleased to announce some of our Distinguished Lecturers:

  • Prof. Nick Quirke, Imperial College London, UK
  • Prof. Andrea Cavallini, University of Bologna, Italy
  • Prof. Masahiro Kozako, Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan
  • Assoc.-Prof. Thomas Andritsch, University of Southampton, UK
  • Drs. Marie-Paule Besland, CNRS, University of Nantes, France

Information on the theme and the Provisional Program is now available in the attached flyer and on the Thematic School websitehttps://seedsschool2024.sciencesconf.org/

You can now pre-register by filling the form to download on the website and sending it back at: [email protected] 

Do not hesitate to advertise this event through your professional network and to come back to us for any further information. 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Porquerolles Island from 15 to 20 September 2024.

Best regards

The organizing committee

Assoc-Prof. Sombel Diaham, University of Toulouse, LAPLACE.

Dr. Gilbert Teyssèdre, University of Toulouse, LAPLACE.
