CALL FOR PAPERS Young Researchers Contest

JIC HVDC 17 YRC Call for papers (pdf, 51kB)

The Organisation Committee of Jicable HVDC’17 is setting up a Young Researchers Contest to encourage the participation of students and young researchers.

Full-time engineering and science university researchers and PhD students are invited to submit abstracts of their research work. The topic of the abstract should fall within one of the programme categories listed below related to HVDC cables systems. Students and researchers whose abstracts are selected will be invited to present their papers, explain their poster and answer questions at Jicable HVDC’17. Prizes will be awarded to the authors of the three best papers.

The objective of the seminar Jicable HVDC’17 is to take stock of the developments in DC cable systems


1)    Progress on the understanding of physical phenomena and on materials for use in HVDC.
2)    Very high DC voltage: 500 kV extruded power insulated cables, current standardization,
3)    HVDC corridor projects in Europe for underground links, hybrid possible systems.
4)    Submarine HVDC links: state of the art of extruded and paper power insulated cables, power transmitted.


  • Submission of abstracts : 1st May 2017
  • Submission of texts : 1st October 2017
