International Conference on Lightning Protection
Improving Protection of People, Animals and Properties Against the Effects of Lightning
ICLP is a scientific/technical organ aiming at promoting scientific research on lightning physics as well as methods for improving protection of people, animals and properties against the effects of lightning.
Regular international meetings on lightning events and lightning protection of structures and services are organized by ICLP in order to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of scientific knowledge and information among scientists and engineers who are engaged in research and practical application on lightning protection and to ensure the effective transfer of new knowledge from lightning research into practice for the benefit of society. All the papers presented at ICLP meetings are reviewed by a panel of experts and are selected based on their scientific and technical merit.

We have noticed the existence of organizations such as WASET that run conferences that have nothing to do with ICLP (see e.g. https://www.waset.org/conference/2018/01/dubai/ICLP).
WASET claims to be organizing ICLP conferences at different locations every year.
This message is to inform you that the International Conference on Lightning Protection, a scientific/technical organ aiming at promoting scientific research on lightning physics as well as methods for improving protection of people, animals and properties against the effects of lightning (www.iclp-centre.org/), which has organized the ICLP conferences for more than 50 years, does not have any involvement with WASET and strongly deplores initiatives of this league.
We are confident that all researchers and members of the Lightning Physics and Lightning Protection community will immediately realize that standard of WASET conference on Lightning Protection does not match with the scientific value that characterizes ‘the’ International Conference on Lightning Protection.
Please spread this information among your contacts so that nobody mistakenly confuses our Conference with the WASET one!
