LED professional Symposium +Expo – Call for Papers Ends February 15th, 2013

The LED technology sector has been driven forward by numerous innovations and developments during the past year. The quality of light has been improved and power density markedly increased through augmented efficiency. This fast paced market promises much progress and many innovations during the coming year. GaN-on-Silicon technology, various nano-technologies and new production methodologies are now ready to enter the market. However, Siegfried Luger (publisher of LED professional and Event Director of the LpS), warns that besides all these innovations the lighting industry also needs regulations and standards. He feels that these requirements greatly increase the significance of the Zhaga Standard for LED Light Engines.

In order to expedite development it is necessary to have a mutual exchange of scientific knowledge, discussions about promising solutions and a network that brings key players from the areas of science and industry together. This is the central idea behind the annual LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS) in Bregenz (Austria), which has established itself as the leading LED lighting technology event in Europe. Apart from the numerous presentations in the fields of component, measuring and production technologies, the important topic of decreasing costs of research & development will be discussed by Menno Treffers, Secretary-General Zhaga.

February 15th, 2013 is the deadline for lighting experts from academia and industry to hand in their abstracts for consideration if they want to present them at the symposium in September. Topic areas, content details as well as information about the selection process through the Advisory Board are explained at length on the event homepage www.LpS2013.com/call.
Abstracts should be sent via email to: symposium@led-professional.com

LED professional Symposium +Expo: Europe’s central meeting point for LED lighting technologies
LpS 2013 follows the very successful LpS 2011 and LpS 2012. From September 24th to 26th, 2013 over 80 exhibitors from all over the world are expected in the Festspielhaus Bregenz to present their product innovations in the field of LED technology. Based on the increasing number of visitors (+20%), the event organizer is expecting more than 1,000 international guests this year.  Visitors to the LpS 2013 will be able to glean information about the latest developments and advances in technology as well as see state-of-the-art products ready for the market. The symposium, chock full of technical lectures by international authorities, gives the audience an overview of where LED technology now stands. Interactive workshops provide opportunities to discuss new trends and lighting solutions for the future with the experts.

Quality has the highest priority
An extraordinary amount of positive feedback from exhibitors, visitors and speakers, confirms the exceptionally high quality of the event: “The range of topics was well chosen and the organization throughout the event was exemplary.  RECOM Electronic will definitely be back in 2013”, said Stephan Wegstein, Marketing Director Lighting, RECOM Electronic GmbH.

Prof. DDr. Sergei Ikovenko, MIT wrote, "The LED professional Symposium was an outstanding event that brought together leading LED experts from industry and academia. I was surprised at the level of professionalism and the caliber of speakers. It was also a wonderful opportunity to network and experience the atmosphere of creativity and innovation."

One of the main objectives of the event organizer is to exceed the expectations of the symposium participants and expo visitors again this year. “Our goal is to present the latest technologies, innovations and methodologies for LED lighting every year. People visiting Bregenz will have the most current information available and the network necessary to make good strategic decisions for the coming year”, said Siegfried Luger, Event Director and publisher of LED professional.
