CIE will provide trainings, workshops and seminars on lighting fundamentals as well as will complement each newly published Standard and Technical Report with a training unit. You can participate in these trainings either in “real life” in the Central Bureau in Vienna or wherever you are during the seminar by using our life streaming facility and our online training tool. If you do not find the time to participate via one of these facilities you can later download the recorded and edited contents from our online platform.

The first seminar will take place on November 23rd, 2011 between 09:00am and 05:00pm in Vienna and will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Janos Schanda.

Target group:  anybody interested in solid state lighting, the photometry and colorimetry of solid state devices, especially LEDs and LED modules.

Subjects to be covered are the following:

1.    Fundamental differences between LEDs, LED modules and LED lamps as well as traditional light sources
2.    The most basic terms used with LEDs and LED modules
3.    Photometry of LED devices (differences compared to traditional light sources):
