An IEEE DEIS conference talk.

DEIS Fully Sponsored Conferences

DEIS sponsors a series of international conferences to provide a forum for members and non-members to participate and share research results, new developments, and practical experience in the Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation fields.  Some conferences are held annually, while others are bi-annual or even every three years. Be sure to mark your calendars for the events of interest to you and look for announcements from the organizing committees. Please be careful when searching the internet for DEIS conferences. There are fraudulent websites advertising predatory conferences with very similar names. The sole purpose of these predatory conferences is to collect paper or registration fees. A calendar of all upcoming conferences can be found on the events page.

A list of upcoming conferences can be viewed on the upcoming conferences page.
