33rd International Conference on Lightning Protection - Estoril, Portugal | 25-30 September, 2016

About 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.

Since 1951, regular international meetings on lightning events and lightning protection of structures and services are organized, 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.
