LED professional Lighting Forum at the electronica 2014

Luger Research e.U., publisher of LED professional and organizer of the LED professional Symposium 2014, will organize the inaugural Lighting Forum as a part of the electronica 2014 on November 13th, 2014. The International Year of Light (IYL) 2015 will form the core of the forum program.

The forum concentrates on lighting technologies and will bring together stakeholders in EU lighting as well as key persons from the IYL 2015 initiative. Prof. Joseph Niemela from the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) will open the forum with a keynote presentation, highlighting the main aims and expectations of the IYL 2015 initiative. ICTP is responsible for coordinating the IYL 2015 effort. A subsequent panel discussion, entitled “International Year of Light 2015 – Strategies and Technologies”, will include academics involved in LED, solid-state lighting (SSL) and smart lighting research, as well as entrepreneurs and members of the European lighting consortia. The discussion will focus on the main strategies for lighting in Europe as well as future innovation and technologies that can accelerate Europe’s competitiveness on a global scale.

This will be followed by an interactive technical panel discussion on “Trends in Solid-State Lighting” aimed at engineers and researchers. Consisting of CTOs and heads of R&D from leading companies, the discussion will introduce the current innovations and highlight key technical aspects of electronic designs for lighting applications.
