The eleventh International Conference on Electrostatics, organised by the Electrostatics Group of the Institute of Physics was held at Heriot-Watt University, 23-27 March 2003. The conference was held in conjunction with the Institute of Physics Congress. The conference theme was recent research and developments in electrostatics. Modern electrostatics impacts on a diverse range of fields, from micro-machines and micro-systems to the development of protective clothing for the electronics manufacturing industry. These proceedings provide an overview of the latest advances in electrostatics, covering areas such as new measurement, testing and characterization techniques; instrumentation design; numerical modelling; electrostatics hazards; and the applications of electrostatics in the environment. "Electrostatics 2003" provides an authoritative reference for all scientists and engineers researching techniques and applications of electrostatics.
