Workshop 1: Using Your Head to Light From Your Heart
We are all engaged in creating a fairly narrow part of our built environments, and it is turning out to have a much greater effect on us than anyone
who made the frst light fxtures ever expected. Neurological research is showing us so many important responses to light. While this is expanding,
the effectiveness and fun we could have with unlimited use of electricity to accomplish healthy and exciting lighting has been drastically curtailed by
sustainability goals and thus the need for cutbacks on energy consumption. The challenge for us is to still give our clients truly great outcomes. Lower
energy allowances have a positive side: paring down the ideas for a project lets the very best of them be stronger and work for the aesthetic of the project.
This forced editing can actually be a strong driver of clarity in design. Like all felds of design, lighting requires artistic vision applied to solving problems.
Both the functional problems and tools for solving them are changing. What remains timeless are projects that function as needed and go far beyond,
evoking emotion, promoting health, and delighting us. Successful lighting designers achieve these results because they see what the project can be
regardless of the materials or energy allowed.

8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Workshop 2: LED Lighting Standards, Methods of Measurements, Projections, and Measurement
This workshop contains two sections. The frst section is the overview and the update for the latest standards for LED and LED lighting from both industry
and the US governments. In particular, the recent work being carried at ANSI, IESNA, NEMA, UL, IEEE, SEMI, ASABE, US EPA, etc. for LED applications. The
second section introduces the standardized methods of measurements for LED packages and LED lighting systems. It provides detailed explanations for the
objectives, procedures, and rationale for measuring, testing and projecting the long-term behaviors of the LEDs and LED lighting characteristics including
photometry, colorimetry, luminious fux and color maintenance, thermal resistance, failure rate, etc. Also, the measurement equipments and instruments,
research and standardization work in CIE and IES on the key measurement instruments will be introduced. The best practices including uncertainties for
LED and lighting measurements will also be discussed.
