Light + Color 2016 SymposiumGaithersburg, MD | April 3 – 5, 2016

The general goals of the symposium were:

Attendance at the symposium numbered 170 and represented a wide variety of organizations and professions, including lighting research, engineering, manufacturing, architecture, retail, textile chemistry, lighting design, interior design, standards, instrumentation, and academia (both students and faculty).

The symposium employed a unique format for the symposium speaker sessions, with two speakers presenting on each of the four focused topics — one speaker covering current research and the other covering design and applications in the real world. The purpose of such a format was to make a robust connection between research that is known and research that is needed relative to color, and then relating that research to lighting application and practice. Two additional special keynote speakers, along with poster papers, lab tours, networking and demonstrations further enriched the attendee experience.
