The 2018 IEEE International Conference on High Voltage Engineering and Application (ICHVE 2018) was organized by the National Technical University of Athens–Greece and endorsed by the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society.

The conference, chaired by Ioannis Gonos and co- chaired by Ioannis Stathopulos, Jian Li, and Nicolas Younan, was held in Athens, Greece, September 10 to 13, 2018, and was the fifth of a series of successful conferences (Chongqing, China: 2008, New Orleans, USA: 2010, Shanghai, China: 2012, Poznan, Poland: 2014, and Chengdu, China: 2016).


The 406 participants from 31 different countries had the opportunity to attend 32 oral sessions and 8 poster sessions and get acquainted with the trending high voltage research in over 190 presentations. The main research areas covered by the conference papers were electromagnetic fields, transients and EMC, aging, space charge and maintenance, grounding systems, monitoring and diagnostics, power and industrial applications, HV insulation systems, and HV testing and measurement. Out of the 475 full papers received, the International Scientific Committee accepted 394 papers for publication in the conference proceedings.


The conference organizers are sincerely honored by the support and contribution of all the participants, the organizing committee, and the volunteers who made this memorable experience possible and would like to invite everyone to the next stop of the ICHVE journey in Beijing.
