New Track System for 2013
You can select courses in your area of interest for a focused study, or mix-and-match courses from different tracks
for a big-picture view. Either way, this new TRACK system makes it easier to find the topics important to you.
With ever more increasingly sophisticated lighting
equipment and more demanding energy code restrictions,
commissioning a project has become a paramount necessity
to achieve maximum performance. Commissioning starts
with conceptual design, through design verification, and
continues well after owner occupancy. This track explores
working with commissioning agents, certification processes,
owner operation and maintenance.
This track addresses how the design community contributes
to environmental stewardship and sustainable design.
Presentations will emphasize innovative ideas in design, new
developments in the industry and the use and integration of
alternative lighting systems. Improvements in manufacturing
processes and new or existing codes / requirements to
address these issues.
controls & strategies
Ideally, the visual, health and emotional needs of human
beings are met through a lighting system that maximizes
flexibility in intensity, location, spectrum and sustainability
while minimizing energy use and environmental impact.
This track focuses on the control and sensor systems and
strategies that make this both possible and practical.
This track presents information concerning the nature of
daylight, its interaction with architecture and its impact
on the visual, environmental and health needs of humans.
This track explores a plethora of different design tools for
the practice of lighting design. Presentations will include
Revit ® , Mock-ups, Hand Sketch, AGi32 and DIALux.
electric source &
This track will focus on the myriad electric light sources,
luminaires and the equipment required for their functioning.
Presentations will reference the descriptive, operational,
efficiency, maintenance, energy code and environmental aspect
of each electric lighting source, as well as relevant applications.
exterior & roadway lighting
(Complements the new Exterior & Roadway Lighting Pavilion)
Changing design considerations, including legislation,
ongoing budget challenges and the increased performance
of solid state lighting sources are driving designers and
end-users to reconsider their outdoor lighting needs.
Sessions address requirements for roadway, street and area,
façade, landscape, walkways, public features lighting
including review of recommended practices for the lighting
applications, basis for existing standards development and
evolving standards trends, roadmap to benchmark emerging
technologies as compared to incumbent equipment and
lessons learned for consideration, selection and
implementation of up-and-coming technologies.
human factors in lighting
This track explores the latest research addressing lighting’s
impact on visual performance, as well as physiological and
psychological health and well-being. Sessions will relate the
application of this research to actual lighting installations and
include any health or performance related data or findings.
integrated design process
Cooperation between disciplines is critical to the successful
completion of a project. Methods of discipline interaction
range from face to face meetings to integrated design
programs (IPD-Integrated Project Delivery, DBB-Design Bid
Build, BIM-Building Information Management). Sessions
will address design teams and component technologies that
work together as a system to improve overall building
performance and livability.

legislation, codes &
This track will cover the latest lighting, daylighting, energy and
building codes and standards, including current interpretation
and execution of the codes and their impact on future lighting
Limited lighting experience
Moderate technical and / or design knowledge; equivalent of IES ED 150;
up to 10 years working in lighting industry
Advanced technical or design knowledge and / or experience; 10+ years
experience in lighting
This track focuses on creative and effective design
considerations and cutting-edge lighting solutions for
a wide variety of applications. Sessions will include
architectural and design considerations relative to
enhanced learning, new educational pedagogies and
This track will help to expose and debunk some of the
myths and wild claims that surround and infiltrate the
principles of lighting
This track will introduce basic fundamentals of light.
This track focuses on business and personal development
strategies, both for lighting designers and the lighting
industry in general.

This track concentrates on technologies and strategies
for lighting interventions for existing buildings or projects.
Sessions will explore the challenges and advantages of
integrating and repurposing lighting fixtures, controls and
infrastructure to improve the visual environment
and energy efficiency.
Note: ASLA members should check with local chapters regarding national accreditation
as those can vary from state to state.
