From the 13th to 16th of September, 2004 researchers active in the fields of physics of lightning and lightning protection gathered in Avignon, France for the 27th International Conference on Lightning Protection (ICLP). Traditionally, the ICLP provides authoritative reviews of the progress and state of research, as well as opportunity for personal contact between the entire community of lightning researchers. The printed proceedings of previous ICLP conferences enjoyed considerable prestige on a worldwide basis. At the Avignon conference, over 150 papers presenting the entire range of lightning research and protection were presented by scientists from more than 30 countries throughout the world. We cannot claim to have collected a balanced overview of the entire conference, but we believe that the papers that survived the review process, first by the session chairmen and then by the strict anonymous review process of the Journal of Electrostatics, and that are included herein, represent some of the best current research in lightning and its effects. Naturally, any collection of papers in a single field creates a heavy burden of reviewing. We would like to thank session chairmen and many anonymous referees for their valuable, indispensable cooperation in the reviewing process of these papers. We also wish to thank Prof. Mark Horenstein, the Editor of the Journal of Electrostatics, for support of this issue.
