IES Research Symposium II: Light + Behavior – Light’s Influence on Human Behavior, April 6-8, 2014, Cleveland, Ohio
In April 2014 the Illuminating Engineering Society held its second research symposium on the topic of “Light and Behavior”. In an innovative format, speakers representing the design and research perspectives discussed their approaches to lighting for education, outdoor environment or healthcare applications. The designers presented examples of the issues they face in designing for the application and the researchers discussed the latest findings relevant to the application. The organizing committee developed this format to provide a clear connection between design and research, with both parties taking something away from their glimpse into the other’s world. This short article is a synopsis of the symposium.
