Museum lighting is at a pivotal moment, with solid-state lighting (SSL) promising to transform the illumination and display of art. With the aim of promoting cutting-edge technologies, design practices, and research methodologies, we are now preparing a special issue for LEUKOS titled “Museum Lighting.” Since this topic is applied and multidisciplinary, submissions are welcomed from numerous fields, including engineering, architecture, vision science, psychophysics, psychology, conservation science, physics, and chemistry. Among the topics of interest are:

We require that every manuscript be of high scientific quality and clearly written in professional English. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. As with all manuscripts published in LEUKOS, the selection process will be based on a double-blind peer review.

Publication of the special issue is a follow-up to the 1st International Museum Lighting Symposium and Workshops, to be held September 11 – 12, 2017 at University College London. Authors that have presented at the conference are encouraged also to submit a full manuscript to LEUKOS for consideration for this special issue. Participation in the conference is not a requirement for submission to this LEUKOS special issue.

If you would like preliminary comments about suitability of a topic that you are considering for this special issue, then please send a tentative title and abstract to: [email protected].

Submissions will be accepted until March 31, 2018.

The submission website for LEUKOS is located at: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/leukos. Please visit the Instructions for Authors before submitting a manuscript.
