At the 2018 IES Research Symposium the latest research on how light during the day and night affects our circadian, biological, and behavioral responses were presented along with discussions on how this research might affect current and future design applications. The Symposium brought together over 220 lighting professionals, designers, and academics joined us at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. During the Symposium, researchers from around the world discussed the latest research on how light during the day and night affects our circadian, biological, and behavioral responses, as well as how this research affects design applications.
2020 IES Research Symposium Coming Soon!)
This Transforming Healthcare and Wellbeing through Lighting Workshop was co‐sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF)‐funded Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Center for Lighting Enabled Systems and Applications (LESA) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) to address the research, design, specification, and adoption challenges of new lighting applications for maximizing healthcare benefits and improving healthcare operations. The IES and RPI LESA Co‐Chairs brought together leading researchers, selected lighting company representatives, lighting designers, healthcare standards organizations’ representatives, and hospital facility directors to discuss the status, barriers, opportunities and market needs/value propositions for developing lighting standards and specifying/installing lighting systems that can benefit both patients and healthcare providers in healthcare facilities.
