Resolution of the Governing Body

0. PREAMBLE

A Symposium on Insulation of High Voltages in Vacuum (IHVV) was prepared in 1963 and held in 1964 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Symposia were held in even-numbered years ever since, and the name International Symposia on Discharges and Electrical Insulation in Vacuum (ISDEIV) was used since the third symposium, held in Paris, France, in 1968.  While the original documents are lost, the here-presented Resolution of the Governing Body are based on the definition made in the original bylaws and approved by the Permanent International Scientific Committee, the Governing Body.  The document reflects the current Resolution of the Governing Body and updated Bylaws as approved by the Permanent International Scientific Committee of 2015.
