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.

energy, environment

& sustainability

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.

design tools

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 &

gear technology

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.
