The IES holds bi-annual Research Symposia and periodic Research Workshops. These events strengthen the lighting research community, promote awareness of the latest research trends, and foster connections with other fields of study.
IES Research Symposia are organized by the IES Research Symposium Committee and have been held since 2012. For details and materials from past symposia, see the links below. Information on the next Research Symposium, to be held in 2018, is forthcoming.
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 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. » Learn More
