The International Symposium on Discharge and Electrical Insulation in Vacuum (ISDEIV) is a non-profit, international organization whose purpose is to encourage the advancement of the science and application of electrical insulation and discharges in vacuum, primarily by conducting symposia for the exchange of scientific information.
The Symposia are held biennially. They are interdisciplinary meetings for the exchange of results, presentation of progress, and discussion of ideas and challenges for the future in the field of electrical discharges and insulation in vacuum. Both fundamental and applied aspects are covered. Symposia program consist of invited talks, invited oral contributions, and posters. Minicourses and informal discussions on relevant topics may also be offered in addition to the regular Symposium schedule.
This Symposium edition, hosted by Consorzio RFX, was initially scheduled for June 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it has been rescheduled to run from September 27 to September 30, 2021.
It was our strong commitment to organize this Symposium as a face-to-face event, but the pandemic is far from being under control.
For this reason, in agreement with the Permanent International Scientific Committee (PISC) of the ISDEIV, it has been decided to organize the Symposium with a remote format.
