“International Conference on Lightning Protection” (ICLP) and “International Symposium on Lightning Protection” (SIPDA) represent the majority of the world scientific and industrial community in the field of lightning. ICLP and SIPDA bring together delegates of a broad spectrum that includes scientists, advisers, entrepreneurs, and heads of industrial research programs. Since Lightning protection is a multi-million dollar industry, the ICLP-SIPDA conference is one of the most sought after events by both scientists and inventors alike to bring the novel ideas and inventions to the public. This year considering the chaotic global situation instigated from the COVID-19 pandemic, the ICLP and SIPDA scientific committees have decided to hold a joint virtual conference from 20th to 26th September.
Extended and improved versions of selected papers presented at ICLP-SIPDA 2021 will be published on a Special Issue of the Electric Power Systems Research journal
The South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE) has recently established a Lightning Chapter and will be having a launch event on the 19th – 20th April 2021. The event is an online webinar starting at 17:30 SA time (UTC + 2hrs) and is open to all.
