• The IEEE Holm Conference on Electrical Contacts
has been held annually since 1953 (but no conferences in 1955, 1964 and 2020) in the U.S.A. and Canada.
• The International Conference on Electrical Contacts
was first organized in 1961 and has been held biennially since 1964 throughout the world. In 2020 the conference was canceled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and was held as a virtual (online) conference in 2021.
• The Albert-Keil-Kontaktseminar
was started in 1972 and has been organized biennially since 1973 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The 2021 conference has been canceled for the same reasons as the ICEC one year before, and is scheduled for March 30 – April 1, 2022.
Combined these 112 conferences contain over 5100 individual papers. This wealth of knowledge is now available in a single source to be re-discovered by those of us who have many years in this scientific field. Additionally, and perhaps even more important, these papers also offer a strong foundation for all the new investigators wishing to add their own research and developments to this rich and continuously evolving scientific field.
