    12 noon to 12:30 p.m. I Registration and lunch

    12:30 to 1:45 p.m. I 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 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 those in the space.

    2 to 3:15 p.m. I Seminar #2: Light and Its Effect on the Colours We Perceive
    It has been argued with much success that objects do not have any colour. All the colours perceived by the eye are a result of light form any specific spectrum being reflected off objects. If a blue ball is being lighted by a light source without any blue in it, it will be void of any colour. A truly eye-opening seminar.

    3:30 to 4:30 p.m. I Seminar #3: The Future of OLEDs – Organic Light Emitting Diodes
    OLED is an exciting new lighting technology that is just emerging in the marketplace. This workshop will review the fundamental principles of OLED technology, highlight its similarities and differences to the (in-organic) LED and review current and future performance. 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.
