At the 2018 IES Research Symposium the latest research on how light during the day and night affects our circadian, biological, and behavioral responses was presented along with discussions on how this research might affect current and future design applications. The Symposium brought together researchers and design professionals for an open exchange of ideas that will influence future priorities for developing and adopting metrics, standards, and recommended practices.
