LIGHT + COLOR - IES Research Symposium III

  • Hilton Gaithersburg and NIST Gaithersburg USA (map)

This international lighting research and application symposium will draw on the talents and expertise of the researcher, the technologist and the design professional to better understand the growing role of color in lighting from the standpoints of color vision, color perception, color preference, color metrics and color technology.

Researchers and designers actively involved in the study of light and color and how it applies to lighting from the technology, design and application standpoints are invited to submit poster papers describing their work. Topics of interest include:

  • Color vision
  • Color perception
  • Technology and application of color and light
  • Color metrics and measurements

Poster papers, whether focused on research or design applications, will be an integral part of this symposium supplementing the case studies, research findings and demonstrations of the invited speakers. Of particular interest will be examples that help explain why the use of color is thought to make certain designs more successful than others or research that contradicts common practice. Ample time is being built into the program and both venues for poster viewing and discussion. The number of symposium attendees is being limited so that all will have an opportunity to interact with the authors as well as experience the comprehensive SSL color demonstration facilities at NIST and the special color experiences being planned by the invited speakers. Authors of accepted poster papers will be invited to submit their papers for publication in the IES Journal Leukos and all papers will be included in the Symposium Final Report which will be available as an electronic publication of the IES. Authors of accepted poster papers are entitled to free symposium registration (one registration per paper) and may apply for a stipend for partial reimbursement of travel and hotel expenses. Reimbursement funds are limited.
