Welcome

“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.
