Abstract : The 1992 International Conference on Defects in Insulating Materials, held in the historical palace of Nordkirchen in Germany, continues a series of successful international conferences. The series developed from a conference on color centers in alkali halides (1956) into the International Conference on defects in Insulating Crystals (ICDIC), 1988 held in Italy. The conference series is merged with the Europhysical Topical Conference on Lattice Defects in Ionic Materials (LATDIM), creating a biannual series of international conferences on this topic. As seen from this year's conference title, the emphasis has proceeded further towards materials science and consequently the conference is now called International Conference on Defects in Insulating Materials (ICDIM). The aim is to provide a forum to bring together scientists from academic research and industry to discuss both the basic physics of defects in a wide range of insulating materials and their role in numerous applications, a rapidly expanding field.
