Registration is Now Open for 2014 Lighting Research Center Seminars

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is offering several new seminars this year. For each seminar, attendees will earn Learning Units from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and/or Continuing Education Units. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is providing funding to offset a portion of the registration fee for New York State residents, so if you are a New York State resident, you can attend the courses at a significant discount. All classes have limited enrollment and are expected to fill quickly.

Residential Lighting Technologies and Techniques is a one-day seminar to help contractors, homebuilders, energy auditors, architects, and others involved in residential lighting, to select and install efficient, new lighting technologies, such as LEDs, utilizing the LRC’s interactive design tool Lighting Patterns for Homes. Seminars will be offered at locations across New York State: April 9, 2014 in Troy; May 8 in Buffalo; May 14 in Elmira; May 15 in Syracuse; and October 1 in NYC. The cost for each participant is $40, which includes continental breakfast and lunch, and all course materials.

The LED Lighting Institute is a three-day seminar covering all the latest on light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technologies. Through hands-on experience, participants learn how to incorporate LED and OLED technologies into architectural lighting fixture designs, develop lighting systems using the unique characteristics of solid-state lighting, and compare LED and OLED system components from a variety of manufacturers to determine operating characteristics and other important specification factors. The seminar will take place May 13-15, 2014 in Troy, NY.

The Light and Health Institute is a two-day seminar for professionals in lighting, architecture, facility management, research, and healthcare, providing the latest research and  knowledge necessary to design and utilize efficient lighting to benefit health and wellbeing. This hands-on seminar will explore light’s effect on sleep, alertness, and performance, and illustrate how light can be used to improve conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and jet lag. The seminar will take place May 6-7, 2014 in Troy, NY. Participants who register by April 15, 2014, will receive a Daysimeter (personal light measurement device) to wear for a two-week period prior to the Institute. During the Institute, LRC researchers will analyze the light exposure data collected and these participants will receive a report detailing their circadian entrainment during the two-week period.
