International Conference on Lightning Protection

Improving Protection of People, Animals and Properties Against the Effects of Lightning

ICLP

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.

Beware of non-ICLP conferences

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!

EVENTS

For the first time in its history, the International Conference on Lightning Protection (ICLP), one of the most prestigious international lightning protection conferences, is coming to the African continent – and how appropriate!

With some of the most spectacular thunderstorms in the world, South Africa’s long history of lightning research and our experienced protection industry, ICLP 2022 and South Africa are a natural fit.

“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.
