    12:30 to 1:45 p.m. | Seminar #1 Quality of the Visual Environment
    Lighting design has evolved well beyond product specifications and lighting calculations. Great lighting design merges the art and the science of lighting into a work of art. The IESNA has a formal system for considering a wide range of lighting design criteria. By taking into account the critical issues in each space and melding the aesthetic aspects, the designs can be fabulous to look at while being functional and comfortable to the people in the space.

    LED technology has been rapidly advancing and has offered exciting new options in providing illumination for many applications.  There is a systems approach to the manufacturer of LED luminaire which requires an understanding of the performance benefits, allowing the lighting specifier to separate myths from realities when applying LED luminaires to their applications.

    3:30 to 4:30 p.m. | Seminar #3 The Future of OLEDs – Organic Light Emitting Diodes
    OLED is an exciting new lighting technology that is just emerging in the marketplace.

Finally, the complementary nature of LED and OLED applications will be discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of OLED lighting in a hands-on way.
