Conferences of the International Dielectric Society

The development of modern techniques of Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy (BDS) during the mid-nineties inspired Yuri Feldman, John Berberian and Friedrich Kremer to organize a series of international conferences in Dielectric Spectroscopy beginning in 2001 in Jerusalem. Previously, a series of conferences on Dielectric and Related Phenomena (DRP) were initiated in Poland in 1990 by Aleksander Szymanski and Andrew K. Jonscher to meet demands of both academic and industrial researchers to discuss different aspects of investigations and applications of dielectrics, insulators, etc.

Since then seven BDS conferences have been organized: 1st BDS - 2001 in Jerusalem, Israel; 2nd BDS - 2002 in Leipzig, Germany; 3rd BDS - 2004 in Delft, Holland; 4th BDS - 2006 in Poznan, Poland; 5th BDS - 2008 in Lyon, France, 6th BDS - 2010 in Madrid, Spain and finally the 7th BDS - 2012 in Leipzig, Germany

In 2014 the 8th BDS conference takes place in Wisla, Poland. The local organizing committee is represented by the research group of Prof. Dr. Marian Paluch (Institue of Physics, University of Silesia in Katowice).
