International Electrical Congress
The International Electrical Congresses were a series of meetings of experts in the then new field of applied electricity.
The first International Electrical Congress took place in 1881 at the International Exposition of Electricity, held in Paris. At that time the International System of Electrical and Magnetic Units was agreed to. Other meetings included:
- 1893 in Chicago, at the World's Columbian Exposition, where refinements to the units of measurement, including the Clark cell, were discussed.
- 1900 in Paris, where meetings led to the creation of the International Electrotechnical Commission in 1906
- 1904 held at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St.Louis, Missouri
