The 12th International Conference on Atmospheric Electricity is a unique opportunity to present and discuss the newest results and to assess the most relevant issues on atmospheric electricity and lightning physics. Young scientists are especially encouraged to attend the meeting and present the results of their research.
Most of the topics related to electricity in Atmosphere will be addressed: Fair Weather Electricity, Physics of lightning, Lightning Protection...
The conference will be held in France, in the city of Versailles, a nice and quiet historical city very close to Paris. Date of the Conference is from Monday 9th to Friday 13th June 2003. In Paris area, a few days before summer season, a sunny and warm weather can be encountered.
