It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to participate in the forthcoming International Symposium on High Voltage Engineering (ISH 2021). ISH 2021 will be held in Xi’an, China from 19-23 September 2021. It follows along the lines of the previous successful symposia held in Munich, Germany (1972), Zurich, Switzerland (1975), Milan, Italy (1979), Athens, Greece (1983), Braunschweig, Germany (1987), New Orleans, USA (1989), Dresden, Germany (1991), Yokohama, Japan (1993), Graz, Austria (1995), Montreal, Canada (1997), London, United Kingdom (1999), Bangalore, India (2001), Delft, Netherlands (2003), Beijing, China (2005), Ljubljana, Slovenia (2007), Cape Town, South Africa (2009), Hannover, Germany (2011), Seoul, South Korea (2013), Pilsen, Czech (2015), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2017), and Budapest, Hungary (2019).

I believe ISH 2021 will provide an excellent forum to present results, advances and discussions among engineers, researchers and scientists, and share ideas, knowledge and expertise on high voltage engineering. At ISH 2021, the tradition will meet the challenges of the twenty-first century such as HVDC transmission, distribution generations, smartening of power networks, and integration of renewable energies, etc.

Several important dates for this international symposium are as follows. The deadline for conference abstracts is March 15, 2021. The date of provisional acceptance notification of abstracts is April 15, 2021. The deadline for full papers is June 15, 2021. And the date of final acceptance notification of full papers is July 15, 2021.

The scope of ISH 2021 includes: (1) Electromagnetic fields: computation, measurements, environmental effects. (2) Transient voltages: lightning, switching, repetitive impulses, surge arresters, insulation coordination, over-voltage protection, EMC. (3) High voltage and high current testing techniques: test procedures, measurements, evaluation, partial discharges, space charges, dielectric characteristics, emerging test techniques. (4) Advanced materials and insulation systems: outdoor, indoor, solid, liquid andgas insulated, nanodielectric, eco-friendly and other new materials, novel insulation system. (5) Monitoring and diagnostics: intelligent sensing, big data, artificial intelligence, asset management, live-line working, maintenance and repair, safety considerations. (6) HVDC technologies and systems: design problems, testing and measuring techniques, advanced HVDC systems. (7) High voltage engineering problems in future power grids: distribution generations, smartening of power networks, and integration of renewable energies. (8) Industrial applications of high voltage: non-energy applications in different fields. (9) Other related issues.

ISH 2021 will be sponsored by The International Council on Large Electric Systems (Cigré) and organized by Xi’an Jiaotong University, State Key Laboratory of Electrical Insulation and Power Equipment, China Electrotechnical Society, and China Society for Electrical Engineering. The Venue of the symposium is Paradise Resort Hotel in Qujiang district of Xi’an city, which is about 2 km south to the well-known big wild goose pagoda. It only takes about 40 minutes to drive to Xianyang International airport and about 45 minutes to Xi’an Railway station. The conference website is http://www.ish2021.org. Further information about ISH 2021 will be posted on the website.

We sincerely welcome you to participate in the International Symposium on High Voltage Engineering on September 19-23, 2021 via offline or online conference based on the Covid-19 pandemic situation in each country. We can discuss scientific issues in the field of high voltage engineering together, exchange the latest research results, and inspire new academic ideas through brainstorming.
