On behalf of Cigré-Brasil, it is our honor and pleasure to invite you to the CIGRÉ SC D1 2015 INTERNATIONAL MEETING AND COLLOQUIUM, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from September 13th till September 18th, 2015.

We have established the Organizing and Technical Committees to make Cigré SC D1 Colloquium 2015 in Rio a successful and unforgettable event. The specialists presenting tutorials and their papers are going to bring deeper knowledge and information about "Technology, Materials, Testing and Diagnostics Applied to Electric Power Systems”. At the same time, it will be the perfect environment for scientific exchange of experience. Worldwide-recognized experts from relevant universities, research institutes and manufacturers will be present to share their experience and it is an exceptional opportunity, especially, for young researchers to increase or confirm their motivation to engage in this field.

The Preferential Subjects of the Colloquium were defined focusing on materials and emerging test and diagnostic techniques, including applications in Ultra-High Voltage (UHV) systems, the relevant materials and testing issues applied to insulated cables, including DC cables with polymeric insulation. In addition to the paper presentations, tutorials and technical meetings, a technical visit to Cepel’s UHV outdoor test facility will be planned to the interested participants.

The host city of SC D1 Colloquium 2015 is an attraction by itself. Rio de Janeiro, a World Heritage Site since 2012, brings together natural beauty, nice weather and a variety of entertainment and cultural activities. Chosen to host the Olympics Games in 2016, and place of hundreds of congress and seminars every year, the city lives up to the choice for its natural richness, quality services and infrastructure required for this remarkable technical event.

You are invited to participate in this great occasion for sharing ideas, friendship and culture in the context of the traditional Brazilian hospitality.

Looking forward to welcoming you in the SC D1 Colloquium 2015.
