Light + Quality SymposiumApril 27-29, 2020

How do you balance the push for energy codes that require reduced lighting power densities and automatic lighting controls with a holistic view of the purpose of the lighting? Lighting that addresses a comprehensive approach to satisfying human visual and non-visual needs must consider lighting quality concerns such as glare, color quality, flicker, luminance ratios, spatial distribution of light, and others.

Research that documents how these lighting quality issues affect measurable human responses such as productivity, performance, comfort, satisfaction, and overall well-being in a variety of lighting applications continues to emerge. More efforts are needed to inform future design directions and to serve as an important constraint when defining lighting goals.

This virtual symposium consolidated the current evidence related to these topics and current metrics, and defined future research priorities.
