Light and Health Institute @ Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Sep 26 – Sep 27 all-day

Lighting Research CenterThe Light and Health Institute will be held at the Lighting Research Center (LRC) in Troy, NY. The seminar, led by LRC light and health program director Dr. Mariana Figueiro and LRC director Dr. Mark Rea, provides the latest research as it can be applied. It also provides participants with the knowledge to improve our modern living environments with circadian-effective lighting to support human health and well-being. Attendees will earn 13.25 AIA health, safety, welfare learning units (LUs/HSW) for attending the seminar. They will also receive a continuing education certificate in light and health from the LRC.

Rocky Mountain Lighting Academy 2017 Courses
Sep 28 – Oct 1 all-day

Rocky Mountain Lighting Academy

The Rocky Mountain Lighting Academy (RMLA) is proud to announce its 2017 lighting courses. The RMLA Technical Course and the RMLA Design Course are offered now concurrently from September 28 to October 1.

While participants in both courses will learn some basics of light and vision, visual perception, the IES TM-30 color metrics, light and health, LED systems, the lighting design process and the aesthetics of light, each course will also offer opportunities for in-depth learning in specialized break-out sessions:

The Technical Course offers an intensive hands-on exploration of photometry, optics, and luminaire design software.

The Design Course emphasizes how to develop strong design concepts for interior for lighting applications and how to integrate daylighting with electric lighting.

RMLA courses prepare you to excel in your job by providing:

  • Actionable knowledge and skills in lighting science and lighting design to boost your capability and productivity.
  • A curriculum, designed and taught by lighting educators and industry innovators, that balances lecture content with lots of hands-on practical problem solving.
  • An interactive and inspiring learning environment in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

LED Lighting Institute @ Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Oct 31 – Nov 2 all-day

Lighting Research CenterThe Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, is offering its popular, hands-on LED Lighting Institute—a 3-day seminar for industry professionals covering the latest advances in solid-state lighting, including new developments in connected lighting, made possible through the Internet of Things (IoT), and 3D printing of lighting components. Those who attend will learn the best methods for incorporating LEDs and OLEDs into architectural lighting fixture designs and lighting systems, and compare system components from a wide variety of manufacturers to determine operating characteristics, rated life, lumen output, distribution, and other important specification factors. The program culminates with participants designing, building, and evaluating their own lighting fixtures—now including custom 3D-printed components.

Participants will earn 22.25 AIA Health, Safety, Welfare Learning Units for attending the LED Lighting Institute, and are eligible for LEED and NCQLP maintenance credits

2018 Lux Pacifica @ Tokai University Takanawa Campus, Tokyo Japan
Mar 6 – Mar 8 all-day
8th Lux Pacifica

8th Lux Pacifica

The Illuminating Engineering Institute of Japan will host this 3-day international congress at Tokai University, Takanawa Campus in downtown Tokyo. Lighting scientists, engineers, and designers will gather to share knowledge and participate in technical talks and lectures by distinguished researchers. The campus is conveniently located for participants to enjoy sightseeing in greater Tokyo as well as to Mt Fuji, Hakone, and Kusatsu. It is also easily accessible from Haneda International Airport and Tokyo’s major train stations.

Since 1989, the Lux Pacifica Congress has helped to shape the history of lighting science and engineering in Pacific Rim countries. The Lux Pacifica 2018 will provide participants with the opportunity to demonstrate scientific and technological progress in this region and raise public awareness about lighting.

IES Research Symposium
Apr 8 – Apr 10 all-day

Light + Human Health
Circadian, Biological + Behavioral


IES 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.
