On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am honored to welcome you to attend the 2018 IEEE International Conference on High Voltage Engineering and Application (ICHVE 2018), which is organized by National Technical University of Athens – Greece and endorsed by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society.
The ICHVE 2018 will be held in Athens, Greece on September 10-13, 2018.
ICHVE 2018, after five successful conferences held in Chongqing, China (2008), New Orleans, USA (2010), Shanghai, China (2012), Poznan, Poland (2014) and Chengdu, China (2016), has been established as reference point for the exchange of knowledge and experiences in High Voltage and Power engineering.
Founded in 1837, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) is the oldest Technical University in Greece and in its current form houses nine schools (Civil engineering, Mechanical engineering, Electrical & Computer engineering, Architecture, Chemical engineering, Rural & Surveying engineering, Mining & Metallurgical engineering, Naval Architecture & Marine engineering and Applied Mathematical & Physical Sciences). Established as a prestigious university of science and technology, NTUA accommodates almost 10 thousand students of PhD, Master and undergraduate level.
Athens, the capital of Greece located in Attica region, is one of the world’s oldest cities famous for its recorded history which spans over 3,400 years. We are looking forward to seeing you in Athens, Greece, during September 10-13, 2018. I hope and strongly believe that ICHVE 2018 will be as successful as the previous ones and will definitely be a memorable experience for you and will give you fruitful time, new contacts and a nice stay in Athens.

All these, plus spectacular views of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill, from the upper floors.
As during the days of the 2018 IEEE International Conference on High Voltage Engineering and Application (ICHVE 2018), is a high season period in Athens, it is highly suggested that participants book their accommodation early.
We have secured a certain number of hotel rooms at particularly special rates for the Conference.
Prices are per room per night and include buffet breakfast, services and all taxes.
Greece is in the Eastern European Time Zone. Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+2). Like most countries in Europe, Summer (Daylight-Saving) Time is observed in Greece, where the time is shifted forward by 1 hour; 3 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+3). Daylight-Saving time will be observed during the conference.
The national currency in Greece is the Euro.

IEEE Caixin Sun and Stan Grzybowski Awards
Awards and nomination information
The IEEE Caixin Sun and Stan Grzybowski Awards have been established by the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) and are open to IEEE members and to qualified scientists and engineers outside of IEEE. The awards are granted biennially (every two years) and consist of a prize and a plenary award lecture given at IEEE International Conference on High Voltage Engineering and Applications (ICHVE). The awards can be granted only once to a specific individual and are as follows:
IEEE Caixin Sun and Stan Grzybowski Young-professional Achievement Award is addressed to young researchers or engineers which are involved in challenging topics in the fields of high voltages or dielectric materials and reached the first significant results. This Award will be granted to individuals with a minimum of three years and up to ten years of career experience in research, engineering or innovation after completing their Bachelor’s degree.
IEEE Caixin Sun and Stan Grzybowski Lifetime Achievement Award is addressed to individuals with an outstanding career in research, engineering or innovation in the fields of high voltages engineering or dielectric materials. This Award is addressed to those having a minimum of twenty years long experience certified by publications, patents and/or other significant achievements.
Prizes: Each of the awards consists of an honorarium of 5000 US$ and a plaque presented at the ICHVE. The awardee must present a plenary lecture at the ICHVE.
