Welcome to the ESA e-Proceedings Home Page

The Electrostatics Society of America or ESA switched to an electronic version of its Annual Meeting Proceedings in 2008. The ESA e-Proceedings consists of the papers and presentations of each ESA Annual Meeting beginning with the 2008 year. Prior to 2008 the ESA Proceedings can be obtained at Laplacian Press. Some ESA Annual Meetings may also be joint conferences.

How To View the Papers

An ESA paper can be viewed full screen on your computer by going to the ESA Papers (pdf) Section (see below) and clicking on the conference year and then clicking on the desired paper.

How To View the Presentations

An ESA presentation can be viewed full screen on your computer by going to the ESA Presentations Section (see below) and clicking on the conference year and then clicking on the desired presentation.

Some words of caution. The ESA presentations have been compressed to a reasonable size using the ogg format. As a result to view the presentations your computer’s player must have the codec capable of reading the ogg format. If your computer’s player does not already have the codec then you must either download the codec for your player or download a new player (such as the VLC player -- a free, open source player) that already has the codec.

To use your Windows Media Player you need the codec which can be found at Xiph.org. To download the codec for Windows Media Player click here. This release only supports Windows 2000 and later. Windows 95, 98 and Me users will have problems with this release.

If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of downloading the codec you can just download the (free) VLC player at VideoLAN.

For the PC click here to download the VLC player. For the Macintosh click here to download the VLC player.
