It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to participate in the forthcoming International Symposium on High Voltage Engineering (ISH 2021). ISH 2021 will be held in Xi’an, China from 19-23 September 2021. It follows along the lines of the previous successful symposia held in Munich, Germany (1972), Zurich, Switzerland (1975), Milan, Italy (1979), Athens, Greece (1983), Braunschweig, Germany (1987), New Orleans, USA (1989), Dresden, Germany (1991), Yokohama, Japan (1993), Graz, Austria (1995), Montreal, Canada (1997), London, United Kingdom (1999), Bangalore, India (2001), Delft, Netherlands (2003), Beijing, China (2005), Ljubljana, Slovenia (2007), Cape Town, South Africa (2009), Hannover, Germany (2011), Seoul, South Korea (2013), Pilsen, Czech (2015), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2017), and Budapest, Hungary (2019).

I believe ISH 2021 will provide an excellent forum to present results, advances and discussions among engineers, researchers and scientists, and share ideas, knowledge and expertise on high voltage engineering. At ISH 2021, the tradition will meet the challenges of the twenty-first century such as HVDC transmission, distribution generations, smartening of power networks, and integration of renewable energies, etc.

ISH 2021 will be sponsored by The International Council on Large Electric Systems (Cigré) and organized by Xi’an Jiaotong University, State Key Laboratory of Electrical Insulation and Power Equipment, China Electrotechnical Society, and China Society for Electrical Engineering. The Venue of the symposium is Paradise Resort Hotel in Qujiang district of Xi’an city, which is about 2 km south to the well-known big wild goose pagoda. It only takes about 40 minutes to drive to Xianyang International airport and about 45 minutes to Xi’an Railway station. 

We sincerely welcome you to come to Xi'an to participate in the International Symposium on High Voltage Engineering on September 19-23, 2021. We can discuss scientific issues in the field of high voltage engineering together, exchange the latest research results, and inspire new academic ideas through brainstorming.
