 The widespread adoption of LED lighting has now become the industry standard. However, it brings such vast new opportunities that the future of lighting is defined by the challenges of keeping up with infinite design options, evolving technical applications and best practices, and an ever-expanding array of integrating technologies. Will you be prepared? Join us to examine the impact of rapidly evolving lighting metrics, products, and subsequent market transformations. 

You're invited to attend the 2016 IES Charlotte Future of Lighting Conference and Expo: A one day lighting conference dedicated solely to contemporary and emerging lighting applications, materials, and best practices. The Future of Lighting Design is hosted by the Illuminating Engineering Society Charlotte Section. The conference and expo will take place on Wednesday, October 12th 2016 at the 

UNC Charlotte City Center Building
320 E. 9th St, Charlotte, NC 28202

3D Projection Mapping for Lighting DesignersBrent Javier

 

3D projection mapping is a revolutionary technique to light the world in ways never before possible. A 3D-model of the environment projected onto the environment itself creates an invisible layer of XYZ-space onto the real world. One can then light the world with the same tools used to light a CG scene. For example, a virtual light can be moved in 3D, and the projection will create the shadows as if it was a real light. Although 3D mapping has been used successfully for high-end events, it remains underused for permanent lighting installs, yet has the potential to be a game-changer.

9:30 am

Forces of Change in the Lighting Industry

Rebecca Hadley-Catter

This course will take a closer look at the current trends and changes occurring in the lighting and controls industry.  Technologies, which can be integrated into LED fixtures, will be explored in terms of energy savings, code compliance, health benefits, asset management and Smart Cities.

11:00 am 

Revealing the Circadian Oasis

Prof. Dale Brentrup

There are many factors to consider when designing sustainable buildings and it can be difficult to truly quantify the value of certain design strategies. As designers of the luminous environment our challenge is to address the visual surround not only in an energy effective way but to address all aspects that influence perception, performance and well-being. Integrated lighting design (ILD) must be looking at technologies and metrics that allow designers to analyze, and design in an integrative way. All of the factors that influence the human luminous surround, spatial illuminance, climatic variability, even the circadian light source need to be assessed in a synergistic manor. The intent of this workshop is to better understand the relationship between each of these variables and to start to tackle the messy problem of what is the value of designing better buildings for occupants.

12:00 pm:

Lunch buffet with the Exhibitors

Keynote Address

        Glenn Shrum PLDA, IALD, MIES

Spanning the fields of design and art practice, Glenn Shrum’s work with light places him at the center of converging professional disciplines.  After graduating from UNC Charlotte’s College of Architecture, Shrum received a Masters of Fine Arts in Studio Art with an emphasis on lighting installations and light art history from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008.  In addition to his professional activity as principal of Flux Studio, Glenn Shrum is an active member of the international lighting design and education community. From 2009 to 2011 he was US coordinator of the Professional Lighting Designers' Association and he is currently Director of the Master of Fine Arts program at Parsons School for Design in New York City.

2:00 pm:

Student & Emerging Professional Panel Discussion 

 

This informal question answer discussion will provide students access to lighting professionals representing a diverse range of roles and experience, and create a gateway for collaborative lighting educational programs moving forward.

 

2:00 pm

LEDs and Sustainable Lighting 

                 Donald J. King, LC, CTM

Solid State Lighting (SSL), also called "LEDs", is transforming the lighting industry in a way unlike anything since the invention of the first commercially viable incandescent lamp. LEDs are now being applied in almost all traditional applications. Complex, yet versatile, LED technology is providing energy and maintenance economic benefits. Additionally, LEDs when properly applied, aid in enhanced visual performance for occupants. Understanding LED technology and its benefits compared to traditional light sources is essential to a sustainable lighting design.

3:15 pm 

CCT and Color Metrics 

                Todd Tomsik

The methodology to accurately measure and quantify correlated color temperature and color rendering has been a topic of discussion for decades.  This course illustrates the application of TM-30, the newly published best practice from the IES for applying the latest in color science and measurement techniques and utilizing numeric and graphic outputs that support the interpretation of expected outcomes in real-world applications

3:15 pm

Hybrid and Intelligent Lighting Applications 

Willy Fiallo

This session explores the benefits and challenges of wireless versus wired and hybrid technologies in outdoor lighting systems as a means for assessing the optimal applications for the project. Limitations and advantages of various scenarios are examined through the lens of actual case studies to illustrate how real project teams made assessments and implemented the best technology platform for their situation.

4:30–5:00pm
