The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) is pleased to announce the 28th Annual Street and Area Lighting Conference. The only conference of its kind, the Street and Area Lighting Conference provides industry professionals with a forum for an open exchange of information on a wide range of outdoor lighting issues. The conference also offers educational opportunities that promote excellence in the street and area lighting industry.
The day prior to the conference sessions (Sunday) is devoted to outdoor lighting courses: introductory, intermediate, computer-aided exterior lighting design and LED outdoor lighting (new this year).
A three day conference is planned. Day one begins with an address by Jim Brodrick from the DOE, followed by sessions such as LED technology update, plasma lighting, legislative issues, white light design, and bridge lighting. Day two: elevated contact voltage, sustainability update, case studies (e.g., remote monitoring, lighting a university campus, utility rebates and funding sources, and Minnesota DOT), and a utility perspective of outdoor lighting. Day three: an urban lighting master plan, the affects of lighting on human health, the DOE parking lot lighting project and an update of IES roadway documents.
Rounding out the presentations are networking breakout discussion groups, exhibits, luncheons, and evening events.
