Educational Webinars

Each month, the IES presents a live webinar on topics we believe will be beneficial to our membership and the public at large. We are excited to offer you this education-oriented program where you can expand your knowledge about lighting and earn IES continuing education credits (CEUs). We hope that you will join us.

The Educational Webinar Series features two categories of webinars; IES Standards Webinars and IES Lighting Education Webinars.

IES Standards Webinars: Each webinar is devoted to a specific IES Standard. These webinars are typically presented by one or more lead contributors from the authoring committee of the standard. Webinar attendees have an opportunity to hear directly from experts who have in-depth knowledge on the topic of the standard. In addition, there is an opportunity for a question and answer session at the end. This allows viewers the ability to engage directly with the presenters.

IES Lighting Education Webinars: Each webinar is devoted to a relevant and important lighting topic.

For IES members, viewing the live webinar is FREE. In addition, each webinar is recorded and made available on through our website two weeks after the live event takes place. Viewing the archived webinars is available only for IES members.

For non-members, viewing the live webinar costs $20. The archived recordings are only made available to IES members as a benefit of membership. Click here to become an IES Member

Login information will be sent to each registrant the week of the webinar; on Tuesday morning and again at 10:30 am ET on Thursday (the day of the webinar). Be sure to always check your spam and clutter folders to ensure that you received this important information.

Slide decks of the presentation will not be distributed.

To obtain IES CEUs you must be individually logged in for the duration of the webinar. CEU Certificates will be distributed within two weeks of the live event. No credits are given to those who log in exclusively by phone.

WEBINAR SCHEDULE

Quantifying Luminaire Performance – How luminaires are photometered and how that data is applied in lighting simulations

August 15th 12:00 PM ET
Luminaire performance needs to be quantified so designers can make informed decisions when selecting products as well as evaluate how those products will contribute to the lighting requirements of their projects. Learning how luminaire photometry is done allows you to better understand their performance data and how it should be applied. Details such as the orientation of the intensity distribution, the location of the photometric center and the luminous shape can all have significant impacts on your lighting simulations. It is critical to know the limits of the data supplied by the manufacturer and what is contained in IES files so that you can obtain the most accurate lighting simulations possible and avoid reworking projects that don’t perform as expected.

This seminar will cover the basics of how luminaires are photometered, how distributions and photometric centers are defined, near field/far field photometry, and the surprising importance of luminous geometry.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

PRESENTER:
Mark JongewaardMark Jongewaard
Mark Jongewaard started as an illumination engineer at Lighting Technologies, Inc. (LTI) in 1989, later becoming vice president, director of the optics division and part-owner until 2006, when LTI was sold to Musco Sports Lighting. Since the sale, Mark and business partner Ryan Kelley led the formation of LTI Optics (LTIO), which spun off from Musco and continues the optics related business from LTI. This includes the development and sale of Photopia — the most widely used optical design software in the architectural lighting industry — as well as providing optical design services for illumination based (non-imaging) optical systems. He currently is president and principal of LTIO.


Introduction to Visible Light Disinfection

September 19th 12:00 PM ET
Topic experts Dr. David Sliney and Richard Vincent will discuss the science, applications, guidelines, potential and concerns regarding Visible Light Disinfection. Many manufacturers are making claims that cannot be substantiated. David and Richard will take you through what we know, what we don’t know and what you should avoid. Specific topics will include upper room germicidal UV application, surface decontamination, and UV tools and guidelines.

This seminar will cover the basics of how luminaires are photometered, how distributions and photometric centers are defined, near field/far field photometry, and the surprising importance of luminous geometry.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

PRESENTER:
David SlineyDavid H. Sliney, PhD
David H. Sliney holds a Ph.D. in biophysics and medical physics from the University of London, Institute of Ophthalmology, and served as the Director of CIE Division 6 (Photobiology and Photochemistry (1991-2003) and V-P CIE (2003-2007). He is currently the chairman of the Photobiology Committee of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) and has been active in the establishment of safety standards for protection of the eye and skin from high intensity optical sources. He was a member of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection and active in developing both US and international standards on the Photobiological Safety of Lamps and Lighting Systems. He has published over 200 papers and is currently a Senior Editor for Biomedical Applications and Laser Safety of the Journal of Laser Applications, and editorial board of Lasers in Medicine & Surgery. He co-authored Safety with Lasers and Other Optical Sources, (Plenum Publishing Corp., New York, 1980) and Medical Lasers and Their Safe Use (Springer-Verlag, New York in 1992). He has served as an advisor to the World Health Organization and UNESCO. He was a Fulbright Fellow (1977).
