A workshop to discuss the state-of-the-art in transient induced insulator flashover in vacuum was convened at the Pleasanton Hilton at the Club Hotel on August 24-25, 1988. The workshop was attended by 39 participants. Flashover of vacuum-insulator surfaces is the limiting factor in virtually all well designed high voltage, pulsed systems where such interfaces are needed. They are critical to many LLNL present and future applications. The workshop participants attempted via presentations and lively discussions to summarize the state-of-the-art in the field and to outline the critical research topics which could lead to advances in understanding and applications. Several new results were presented at the workshop and an intense discussion session resulted in the formulation of a set of research recommendations and priorities.
