Highlights of the 27th CIE Session
The international lighting world is going to meet in Sun City/South Africa from July 10th to July 15th at the unique opportunity of a CIE Session. Each four years it brings members, stakeholders and all those who have an interest in lighting together to review progress, exchange information and to elaborate new working and research programmes of the Commission. During the mornings you will participate in a truly international, high-quality scientific conference while in the afternoons the meetings of the CIE Divisions and Technical Committees transform these findings into CIE’s future strategy. CIE 2011 will thus feature the latest achievements in the science and technology of light and lighting and we would like to give you a flavour of what the programme of the 27th CIE Session will be about:
Invited Speakers, such as Liisa Halonen (FI) on “The CIE Recommended System for Mesopic Photometry” or Rainer Neumann (DE) On “LED Headlamps in Automotive Lighting” as well as the Presented Papers cover the whole scope of the CIE’s mission.
The Workshops in particular, of which quite a variety is provided, show the focus on which the Commission is basing its future strategy: “SSL Standardization” (Yoshi Ohno, US and Marc Fontoynont, FR) will design a roadmap and milestones to achieve high-quality, though applicable and timely, results. “Light and Health” (Jennifer Veitch, CA and John O’Hagan, GB) pays due attention to risks, impacts and effects of light sources, an issue which will be further specified in “Photobiological Safety of Lighting Products and Measurement Issues” (Mou Tongsheng, CN) whereas “Lighting of the Elderly and Visually Impaired” (Cyril Chain, FR) is dedicated to special lighting requirements. The series of workshops will be oby “Colour Rendering” (Michael Pointer, GB).
The Presented Posters and the Poster Exhibition will serve as “show cases” of what is being done worldwide in light, lighting, colour and image technology.
The CIE National Committee of South Africa and the Local Organizing Committee will invite you and your accompanying person(s) to a range of social and cultural events which you will also find in the Final Programme for the 27th Session at www.cie2011.co.za where we invite you to view what the CIE (and the South African Hosts) provided for you.
CIE sincerely hopes that it met your expectations and invites you to take part in this truly global event during which researchers, standardizers, representatives of international agencies and end-users will come together to exchange ideas and formulate a way forward on how lighting can be used to the benefit of humanity.
