2014 IES Research Symposium II: Light+Behavior
The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) is presenting a symposium on the role and effects of lighting on human behavior to be held in Cleveland, Ohio USA on April 6-8, 2014.
This symposium is directed at both researchers and designers. There are three segments with content from expert invitees, one each on healthcare settings, educational settings, and urban environments. Each segment will open with a case study from a lighting designer, followed in each case by two scientists who will respond to the designer’s presentation with examples from the scientific literature and their own ongoing research. The segments each conclude with ample time for audience discussion. There is also a poster session with contributed posters, and some special social events. The symposium will wrap up with a concluding session that will pull together the ideas from the preceding sessions and leave everyone excited about the power of light and lighting to enhance our quality of life.
