IES Call For Papers and Progress Report Submissions

Call for Papers or Posters

The IES Annual Conference is a comprehensive educational forum for lighting professionals. This year, we are particularly seeking papers which embrace the process of professional lighting research and development in areas of art and design, science and research and education and practice.

IES Annual Conference Paper and Posters – General Information
Authors of papers regarding the art, science and practice of illumination are invited to submit their papers for possible presentation at the 2015 IES Annual Conference. Paper presentations provide a valuable vehicle for educating the membership about important technical advances in lighting. The Papers Committee especially encourages submission of papers covering a wide range of topics in both research and application.

Papers may be submitted in two different categories: (1) Oral presentation (up to 5000 words) and (2) Poster presentation (5 pages maximum).

The number of papers that will be accepted for a formal oral presentation will be limited. The Conference Papers Committee makes the final selection on papers for presentation, with the primary consideration being what will best serve the interests of the annual meeting and the Illuminating Engineering Society membership. Recently published papers (Leukos, etc.) may be proposed for a conference presentation.
