Abstract : Pulsed power in all its varied meanings is showing no sign of abatement in activity. It is becoming a technology of increasing importance in numerous new and novel applications, growing from its well-established base in energy and defense related research and development. One indication of its vitality is this digest of Technical Papers for the 2nd IEEE International Pulsed Power Conference. The organizers were counseled by many that there would not be enough material that could be covered at this meeting nor would there be a sufficient diversity of interest. However, from our first such conference during November 1976, held in Lubbock as well, we have recorded a fifty percent increase in attendance to almost 300, with well over 100 invited and contributed presentations. There were twenty-five attendees from 10 foreign countries. As a result of this growth and with the realization that this conference serves as the principal forum for the exchange of information in the highly specialized and unique field of pulsed power technology, several actions and events have taken place. First the present technical program committee have been designated a permanent standing committee to organize and maintain this conference series. Secondly, we have agreed to hold this meeting biennially, alternating with the well-known Modulator Symposium.
