ICLP

Welcome to the 37th International Conference on Lightning Protection (ICLP), the premier global event dedicated to advancing the science and technology of lightning protection. We are excited to announce that the ICLP 2024 will be held in the beautiful city of Dresden, Germany.

This conference is an excellent opportunity to meet with the world's leading experts in the field of lightning protection, to discuss the latest research findings, and to learn about new developments in lightning physics and lightning protection technology. Participants will have the opportunity to present their research work, exchange ideas with colleagues, and network with industry professionals. The conference aims to bring together a wide range of experts, while presenting new ideas and inventions to the public.

ICLP 2024 will offer a diverse program of plenary sessions, technical sessions and poster sessions, covering a wide range of topics related to lightning research and lightning protection. Some of the key topics that will be addressed at the conference include lightning protection of structures, lightning measurement and artificial intelligence (AI), lightning protection of power systems, and lightning protection of E-vehicles and charging infrastructure.

In addition to the technical program, ICLP 2024 will also offer a series of social events, providing an opportunity to explore Dresden's rich history and culture, and to network with other conference attendees in a relaxed setting.

We invite lightning protection experts, researchers, engineers, consultants, manufacturer, entrepreneurs, medical lightning specialists, and students from around the world to join us at ICLP 2024 in Dresden, Germany. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event and to advancing the science and technology of lightning research and lightning protection together.

You are welcome to participate in the ICLP 2024 technical exhibition or support the event as a sponsor.
