IES Chicago: Lighting Innovation Hits the Streets @ Perkins + Will (The Wrigley Building, North Tower)
Mar 22 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Mike Carter, Questline

Lighting Innovation Hits the Street! Outdoor lighting is undergoing a revolution. Energy codes are making outdoor lighting controls mandatory. Sky glow, light trespass and glare are a few serious issues that the Industry is addressing these days. Stay ahead of the curve, join us for a look at the outdoor lighting recommended practises, as established by organizations like LEEP, MSSLC, ASSIS, FEMP and IES. We will also discuss, drop-in LED lamps, dirt depreciation, lighting controls, proper disposal of old HID lamps and share lighting innovations and case studies.

IES Research Symposium @ Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown
Apr 8 – Apr 10 all-day

Light + Human Health
Circadian, Biological + Behavioral


Light + Human Health SymposiumIES Research Symposium
April 8 – 10, 2018
Atlanta, GA

How does light during the day and night affect our circadian, biological, and behavioral responses?  At the 2018 IES Research Symposium, Light + Human Health, we will hear the latest research and consider how this research might affect current and future design applications.  The symposium will bring together researchers and design professional for an open exchange of ideas that will influence future priorities for developing and adopting metrics, standards, and recommended practices.

Seminario de Iluminación IES 2018 (México) @ Espacio Virreyes
Apr 18 – Apr 19 all-day
IES Webinar: Design for Color and Illumination
Apr 19 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

IES WebinarsWhen developing a lighting design, lighting specifiers determine the lamp and fixture combination that best suits the design’s requirements based on many factors. While some considerations are largely technical, such as power consumption, the amount of light generated, and how light is distributed, one consideration is both technical and artistic and can be approached in a number of ways. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

IES Chicago: Shedding Light on Horticultural Lighting @ Union Station - Founders Room
Apr 19 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Guest Speaker: Greg Alaura

This AIA/CEU credited event will cover Horticulture Lighting – Interior lighting for plants (not humans). It will discuss the light measurement metrics used for horticulture applications, traditional metrics, and the differences between the two. It will cover how a combination of both approaches/techniques are used to specifiy the grow lighting used in commercial horticulture facilities, including cannabis, food production, and ornamental plant operations. Please join us at the Founders Room inside Union Station.

IES Webinar: Tunable White Controls
May 17 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

IES WebinarsThis webinar will take participants through the different types of light spectrum control, discuss the color tuning abilities of tunable white fixtures and their design challenges and conclude with how you can reduce risk and meet your client’s sequence of operations requirements on color tuning projects.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the fundamental categories of spectrum control with LEDs.
  2. Analyze the color tuning features of tunable white fixtures.
  3. Identify challenges with tunable white.
  4. Evaluate the feasibility of meeting a sequence of operations with various fixture types.

Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Munsell 2018 @ Massachusetts College of Art and Design
Jun 11 – Jun 15 all-day

Munsell 2018

The Year of Munsell
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the Munsell Color Company as well as 100 years since the passing of Albert H. Munsell. It is also the 75th anniversary of the Munsell Renotations.

To commemorate these milestones, the Inter-Society Color Council (ISCC) and the International Color Association (AIC) are hosting a very special event in June of 2018 to honor the pioneering contributions of Munsell to the world of color

Munsell Centennial Symposium will take place from June 11th to the 15th at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design formerly known as the Massachusetts Normal Art School where Munsell taught for over thirty years.

The focus of the event is “Bridging the Science, Art and Industry of Color” with the theme of Celebrating the Past | Envisioning the Future.

Interdisciplinary Program
The five-day interdisciplinary program features invited presenters from around the world who are experts in the fields of color science, art and design, and industrial color. Program Schedule

Breakout sessions on Tuesday and Friday include tutorials, hands-on workshops, field trips and AIC Study Group meetings.

IES Webinar: Solving LED Dimming Issues in Retrofit Projects
Oct 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

LEDs are the go to light source for the replacement of existing lamps and luminaires providing a significant reduction in energy and an extended lifespan. LEDs can fit any form factor, and are extremely malleable compared to what we’ve been using in the past. However, dimming LEDs require careful coordination of lamps, drivers and controls to ensure proper performance. The session walks through dimming expectations for LEDs vs. incandescent such as dimming floor, color temperature, and linearity; the most common problems with LED dimming such as power line noise and how to address them. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
